Headphone manufacturing process
In addition to the drive unit, the exquisite design, beautiful appearance, and good craftsmanship are also expensive. A pair of decent headphones basically start at US$300.
Starting at US$200, you can buy some stylish headphones with a redesigned appearance and a general-purpose, stable quality drive unit. Top earphone manufacturers have their own design, R&D, and engineering departments. These high costs will eventually be passed on to consumers. Don’t expect cheap goods.
The raw materials of earphones
Of course, the price of raw materials is also very important. The drive unit, cables, casing, and the magnets in the casing, and the packaging technology, are very expensive if they are properly implemented. For example, the magnet of a good earphone is much stronger than a normal earphone magnet. The stronger the magnet, the higher the cost.
Sound insulation and comfort of earphones
For most people living in cities, sound insulation of headphones is a fatal part. Excellent sound insulation can not only prevent noise from invading your ears, allowing you to hear all the dynamic details of the music at a low volume but also related to the deep low-frequency reverberation. Everyone hopes that the earphone is comfortable to plug in the ear, so there are many different types of sound insulation measures on the market for you to choose from, in addition to the traditional rubber material, there are also compressed sponges and three-layer tree-shaped earmuffs. Which is best depends on personal preference. Good headphones are generally equipped with a variety of solutions to satisfy consumers. This also increases the cost of an excellent headset to a certain extent.
