Earbuds are like headphones with smaller footprints made out of hard plastic or wood material. These usually fit on the concha ridge at the centre of the ear canal. Earbuds use large drivers compared to earphones which result in a not-so-good fit but provide a better sound stage since they don't seal your ear canal the way earphones do. Noise isolation is not so good in earbuds but in return, they provide a much better sound stage. The best earbuds in India are now available at hifinage.
