On-ear headphones

Find your ultimate sound buddy with JB's range of on-ear headphones. Whether you prefer the freedom of wireless or the reliability of wired models, we’ve got what you need to keep your tunes sounding crisp with options from Sony, JBL, Sennheiser, Marshall, and more.

What Makes Headphones On-Ear?

On-ear headphones hit that sweet spot between the bulky over-ears and the tiny in-ears. With their snug ear cups and a headband that sits just right, they deliver sound that's both immersive and comfortable.

Plus, they're not shy about going wireless. Bluetooth headphones mean no more battles with cables, and for those who are always out and about, foldable wireless on-ear headphones are the go-to.

Now that you’re interested in a sound companion that won't let you down, check out JB’s collection of on-ear headphones from trusted brands for the best options!

Is On-Ear Better Than In-Ear or Over-Ear Headphones?

Deciding between headphone types? On-ear headphones offer a sweet spot. They're lighter and more portable than over-ear headphones, making them a top pick for those on the move. Unlike in-ear headphones, they sit comfortably on your ears for quality sound without the ear canal pressure.

With options for active noise cancellation (ANC), on-ear options run neck-and-neck with noise-cancelling headphones for focus without the bulk of wireless over-ear headphones. Ideal for anyone seeking a blend of convenience, comfort, and superior sound, on-ear headphones are a standout choice at JB!

The Health Benefits of Choosing On-Ear Headphones

On-ear headphones aren't just about superior sound. They’re also a healthier choice for your ears. Here's why:

  • Reduced Ear Canal Pressure: Unlike in-ears, they sit on the ear and minimise the risk of ear infections.
  • Better Hygiene: On-ear designs allow for more air circulation, keeping ears cooler and cleaner.
  • Stress Reduction: On-ear wireless noise-cancelling headphones can significantly lower stress by reducing unwanted background noise and promoting a more focused and relaxed environment.
