Glossary

On-ear (or supra-aural)

On-ear headphones rest on the ears instead of covering them completely. While this design is generally much lighter and doesn’t make your ears as warm, it can be uncomfortable for some, as it puts more pressure on the ears.

Over-ear (or circumaural)

Over-ear headphones are easily recognizable thanks to their large earpieces. They have the advantage of effectively isolating you from outside noise, but also of evenly distributing the pressure across your head and ears rather than on the outer ear. They completely surround your ears and create a cocoon-like feel. This design is generally considered to be the most comfortable, but means the headphones are bulkier.

Active noise cancelling (or ANC)

This revolutionary technology allows you to enjoy your music even in noisy environments (public transport, crowded streets, etc.). Available on certain headphones and earphones for a few years now, active noise cancelling uses a processor that removes ambient noise (picked up by a built-in microphone) from the music signal. You should also know that any headphones equipped with this technology generally have a button placed on one of its earpieces or a feature in its control app to easily activate or deactivate active noise cancelling, and sometimes even adjust it.

C’est tout droit sortie de la fac que j’ai embarqué dans l’aventure Son-Video.com. Bercée par le monde de la hi-fi et du cinéma depuis ma plus tendre enfance, cet univers m’était familier. Alors j’y suis allée. Côté installation, j'ai choisi de jeter mon dévolu sur une paire d'enceintes compactes Q Acoustics 3030i montées sur leurs pieds dédiés, et épaulées par un ancien mais très bon ampli Kenwood KR-V7070.
