Headphones are a pair of small loudspeakers that are held to the ears by a wire headband that passes over the head. Headphones are also called earphones, ear-speakers, or cans. Headphones with a built-in microphone are often called headsets.

Headphones are often used in professional applications, such as by pilots, DJs, and film editors. They are also used by consumers who wish to make phone calls, play video games, or listen to music hands-free.

Did you know? The first headphones were invented in 1910. They were made by hand in the inventor's kitchen, using parts of a telephone receiver earpiece. Their first official application was the U.S. Navy.

There are many different types of headphones. Circumaural headphones cover the ear, while supra-aural headphones rest on the ear. Earbuds are placed in the ear itself, while bone conduction headphones sit in front of the ear, sending sound waves through the bones of the skull to the eardrums.
