On-ear headphones may be the best solution for when you wish to listen to music when on the move, such as on the bus, train, or when bicycling. These types of headphones are more portable than over-ear and more lightweight. The difference in on-ear headphones lays full coverage of the ear, hence, they’re over-ear, whereas on-ear just sit on the top of the ear. These types of headphones are also called semi-open headphones, supra-aural headphones, and ear pad headphones.

These types of headphones are designed to be comfortable, while still blocking out more external noise than in-ear headphones or ear buds. They can keep your ears cooler than over-ear, so may be a better choice in warm climates or when cycling. They’re not as portable as in-ear types, but they do have better sound quality than the in-ear types. There are models that fold up nicely for transport too. If you’re seeking high-quality headphones, your next best option to over-ear models is the on-ear style.
