Which is better: Earbuds and Headphones?

Earbuds sit inside your ear and are very close to the ear canal, and they typically increase the volume by around 9 decibels. Headphones, however, sit outside the ear, so there is less natural amplification.

Headphones also block a lot of background noises. But with earbuds, distracting sounds aren’t dulled, and wearers often turn the volume control up to near dangerous levels. Not to mention that it is easy to find cheaply made earbuds at any convenience store or shopping center. Because of their poor quality, those earbuds only distort sounds which makes wearers turn up the volume even more.
