Wireless headphones are an audio output device with in-built speakers. Wireless headphones have Bluetooth and NFC connectivity technology through which it gets connected to devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs, streaming media players, and various other devices. Wireless headphones work with radio frequency technology and some of the products have an effective range up to 100 feet in an open field area. Several of them come with nickel-cadmium battery and others have in-built battery which consumers have to charge through USB cable. Nickel-cadmium or nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries cannot be charged in the headphones; they have to be recharged separately.
