This means that the headphones will need their own power source, unlike the wired headphones which are usually powered via the device through the cable.

Wireless earbuds are very similar to headphones, just that they are more compact and not as bulky. Avid music fans and gamers usually go for a quality headset because they will spend so much time with this accessory that they feel it makes sense to choose something that can provide them with a great experience.
