Earpiece VS Earbuds: Why Don't People Use Earpieces Instead Of Earbuds
Earpiece vs Earbuds - why do people always choose the latter?
Why is it the case that the global market size was valued at $13.1 billion in 2021?
Simply put, why, as time passes, people are continuing to prefer earbuds over earpieces, headphones, and any other thing you can find.
How are earbuds continuing to win against earpieces? Is it their long-lasting batteries? Is it their ability to seamlessly connect to a range of devices? Does it have to do with how easily they're carried?
There's a list of reasons that we can continue to mention - all the reasons why people love to purchase earbuds.
But let's not spill it all here in the intro - so tighten up your seatbelts as we're about to head into a one-on-one competition of earpieces vs earbuds - and reasons why people love to prefer earbuds over earpieces.
Earbuds Vs Earpiece — Head To Head Competition in Sound Quality, Noice Cancellation, Work Out, & Gaming
Earpiece VS Earbuds Sound Quality
4 Straight-Forward Reasons Why Earbuds Happen To Be Way Better Than Earpieces
- Advanced driver technology
- Improved noise isolation
- Enhanced wireless technology
- Customizable sound profiles
So, what does an earpiece mean?
Well, it's a single earphone that basically sits on the outer canal - in some cases, within the canal as well.
On the other hand, earbuds sit directly in the ear canal.
Now let's talk about the difference between the sound quality offered by earbuds and earpieces.
First of all, earpieces' sound quality is nowhere near the sound quality offered by earbuds. And there are a few reasons why that happens to be the case.
Advanced driver technology and improved noise isolation are the main driving factors that help earbuds win against earpieces.
A few other reasons why earbuds' sound quality happens to be superior to the one offered by earpieces is due to enhanced wireless technology.
Wireless technologies are increasingly becoming stable as time goes on.
Lastly, multiple sound profiles.
Just with your touch - not even with a press of a button - you can change the sound profile and enjoy your favorite content however you'd like to.
Earpiece VS Earbuds For Noise Canceling
ENC – or, Environment Noise Cancellation.
When it comes to smartly canceling out noise, Environment Noise Cancellation is one of the best technologies to ever exist.
Though we've already written a super-length blog post about everything you need to know regarding Environment Noise Cancellation - we'll give you a little brief on ENC here.
First of all, earpieces don't use ENC - and that's why earbuds beat them badly when it comes to noise cancellation.
ENC, or Environment Noise Cancellation uses additional microphones to detect the noise from the user's environment.
After the noise is detected, earbuds produce an equal and opposite wavelength - which is then sent out into the user's environment - canceling out the noise.
This technology simply doesn't exist in earpieces.
Therefore, Earbuds reign supreme when it comes to noise cancellation.
Earpiece VS Earbuds For Working Out
So what qualities would make earbuds or an earpiece a perfect choice for a workout?
Well, for one, the wearable device should perfectly fit your ear canal.
Secondly, it should have noise cancellation technology to help you enjoy immersively motivational experiences.
Lastly, the wearable technology should also have better sound drivers to help you enjoy a beautiful experience.
So, what best fits this profile?
It's earbuds - not an earpiece.
Earbuds fit perfectly in your ear canal while earpieces either don't perfectly fit or make it a very uncomfortable experience - in both cases, making earbuds the only best alternative for a perfect workout.
Secondly, earpieces don't have advanced features like Environment Noise Cancellation - letting you hear every bit of noise around you.
Lastly, earbuds are better than earpieces when it comes to working out because they are IPX7 rated - meaning they're water-proof, allowing you to work without the worry of sweating.
Earpiece VS Earbuds For Gaming
Oh boy, this is a good one - so let's get straight to it.
Low latency is what makes any technology THE BEST for gaming.
It's because the low-latency levels minimize the gap between audio and video output.
Well, earbuds happen to catch sound signals faster than earpieces because of constantly improving technology.
In fact, one of our recent earbud models has 45 ms low-latency levels - allowing absolutely no delays between audio and video quality.
Plus, technologies like Environment Noise Cancellation and all-earbuds make it the perfect choice for gaming than earpieces can ever be.
Let’s Conclude, Earbuds or Earpieces?
So in summary, Earbuds vs Earpieces - who wins?
They have better sound quality, and noise cancellation, better for working out, and gaming.
They're better equipped with the latest technologies necessary for an immersive and a wholesome experience - including Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENC), IPX7 waterproof, and longer battery hours.
All of these technologies make earbuds the best option for attending meetings, enjoying crystal-clear voice calls, and worry-free workouts.
