閱讀測驗

    Thanks to the 20th-century breakthroughs in portable music-playing devices, there are now lightweight headphones that are easy to carry around. People are now commonly seen walking while listening to music using headphones, which come in various designs to meet people’s different needs.

     The term headphones generally refers to a device that allows a single user to listen to an audio source privately. Specifically, headphones are a pair of small loudspeakers worn around the head over the ears. Modern headphones have soft earpads covering the loudspeakers, which not only provide comfort but also increase audio quality. These pads also help block out noises from outside and keep sounds produced by the headphones from being heard by others.
