How do I choose between “on-ear“ headphones versus “over- ear” or simple earbuds?
Using on-ear classroom headphones is an economical solution for schools and educational centers to meet the demands of 21st century education, technology and testing requirements. The ear cushions rest on the outer ear, making the headphone light, comfortable and less prone to overheating the ears.
The on-ear headphone style also allows the wearer the benefit from hearing the outside environment.
Over-ear headphones and headsets will block external sounds.
