Many products such as personal audio and teleision come supplied with over-ear headphones or small bud type earphones, enabling the user to listen at a higher level than might be possible via the loudspeakers, or without disturbing others.  However, the earphones that come with such products are often of limited quality - so, if you plan on a lot of headphone listening, it may be worthwhile investing in a higher quality set.  Also bear in mind the need to be careful of any trailing leads that could pose a hazard to yourself or others.
