What are wireless headphones?
Simply put, wireless headphones (or earphones) don’t have a cable or wire connecting them to your device. Instead, they connect via Bluetooth, meaning no more tangled cables! The trade-off is that wireless headphones will need charging, and Bluetooth does have a maximum range before it cuts off.
