Sensory Stories # 18: Headphones and/or earphones… which one do you prefer and why?

Posted: 9 March, 2022

By: Annemarie Lombard


Earphones versus headphones… which do you prefer and why? In this video, Annemarie discusses this with a particular focus on personal comfort and sensory threshold-based preferences.

Wearing earphones and/or headphones is something we do seemingly without thinking but our preference actually depends on our unique sensory thresholds – whether its tactile, auditory or both.

So next time you grab your headphones or earphones, play around with both of them to see what does and doesn’t work for you. Watch the video to learn more about how this preference aligns with your sensory threshold.
