Choosing the best invisible headphones requires reading reviews and deciding how much you want to spend. It also entails deciding how much sound quality you might be willing to sacrifice in order to make headphones invisible. Many earbuds are very close to being invisible, but until the technology for invisible wireless headphones or earbuds is perfected, there is always a cord that you must also find a way to hide. If it is truly important that nobody can tell you're wearing earbuds, color is also a factor.
Completely invisible headphones don't exist, but many new earbuds are very small and thus hard to see inside the ear. These earbuds are made by many companies and have a wide price range and audio quality, so reading reviews or testing such invisible headphones is probably the best way to choose the right ones for you.
To make headphones invisible, or nearly invisible, you can tuck earbuds into the folds inside your ear, making them very difficult to see. Unfortunately, most of them, especially the ones that deliver good sound quality, also have cords that run to a device. Thus, they probably won't be totally hidden.
To choose the best invisible headphones, you also need to consider the color. Depending on your skin color, you can pick earbuds and cords that won't be as easy for people to see. While they may not be entirely invisible, they'll be much less visible than a choice that stands out against your skin. Some earbuds are available in beige or brown colors that will help them disappear.
The ideal type of invisible headphones would be wireless headphones; however, this technology is still being perfected. Wireless earbuds are available, but the sound quality is in a state of transition. Once wireless invisible headphones with good sound have been produced, this will most likely become the best choice on the market when it comes to hiding headphones. Better wireless technology is available if you wear a helmet or a hat.
A final concern when choosing invisible headphones is comfort. Different earbuds will be more or less comfortable for you depending on the shape of your ears, so it might help to visit a store before making a decision. Reading reviews online is a great way to comparison shop and find detailed information about the many types of earbuds and headphones available.
