Headphones and apps? It’s a perfect match 

Apps for your Headphones

Let’s be honest, we all have that itch in us to never settle with what we have. We are constantly looking for something better or something to spice up things up. Call it greed or human nature - it exists. For instance, when you order pizza, you don’t just order pizza do you? Nope. We go gaga with extra toppings! It’s a delight right? C’mon, who doesn’t like (or in our case, go nuts over) extra toppings?

Guess what, headphones too can be toyed with for a more enjoyable listening session.

Unbelievable? Better believe it. Thanks to a few proprietary apps (some of which are free) you can now sync your headphones with your smartphone to further customise the output. Love bass? Make it more punchy. Love guitar solos? Hear them cry even better - you get the gist. From a better user interface to goofing around with the sound equalizer, these apps have got you covered and then some.

Before you jump the gun, do understand that these apps work with products from their own brand. In some cases an app might work with a particular product range within a brand. Regardless, find your fix and just get in the mix.

Here are a few apps that’ll change your headphone experience altogether:

From the house of JABRA...
