Why headphones make for better ear muffs

Who needs stupid hats or those strange ear warming thingies when there are over-ear headphones? Not only do they keep your ears nice and toasty, they also caress them with your favourite tunes.

With plummeting temperatures and increasing snowfall, you gotta wrap up warm! A thick jacket, fluffy scarf and a woolly hat. Hang on a minute – scrap the last one! You know what’s much better than hats and ear muffs? Over-ear headphones! Not only will your ears be enjoying premium sound quality but premium snugness. Noise cancelling models are particularly well insulated – not only against ambient sound but also against the cold. Open models will allow you to hear what’s going on around you but are not great sources of warmth.

Provided we’re not in for an ice age-style Siberian cold spell like in 2012, over-ear headphones make for perfect multifunctional ear warmers – except, maybe, if your hair is thinning. Then those days are probably over…

A few suggestions on how to protect your ears from the cold yet enjoy the goosebumps that amazing music is giving you.

Being the game and gadget geek that I am, working at digitec and Galaxus makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop – but it does take its toll on my wallet. I enjoy tinkering with my PC in Tim Taylor fashion and talking about games on my podcast . To satisfy my need for speed, I get on my full suspension mountain bike and set out to find some nice trails. My thirst for culture is quenched by deep conversations over a couple of cold ones at the mostly frustrating games of FC Winterthur.
