This is a list of headphone manufacturers. A headphone is a pair of small loudspeakers that are designed to be held in place close to a user's ears. They are also known as earspeakers, earphones[1] or, colloquially, cans.[2] The alternative in-ear versions are known as earbuds or earphones.[1] In the context of telecommunication, a headset is a combination of headphone and microphone. Headphones either have wires for connection to a signal source such as an audio amplifier, radio, CD player, portable media player, mobile phone, video game consoles, electronic musical instrument, or have a wireless device, which is used to pick up signal without using a cable.
