    Bluetooth headphones have so many more advantages to normal wired headphones.There are many reasons for the switch to bluetooth from having limited reach with the wire or just a better sound from bluetooth headphones.

    Bluetooth headphones haven’t always been better than their predecessor. The range is bigger than what the wire can reach now.

    With the older versions of bluetooth, the range was very limited. “In 2008, only 5% of mobile devices were Bluetooth-enabled. Compare that to today, when roughly 95% of mobile devices support it” reported by Business insider.

    Another important feature that comes from the modern bluetooth versions ”lets a single device act as "master" and communicate with up to seven "slaves" at once.” according to Business Insider.

    One feature with old and new features is that they are all compatible with all other versions including the first version 1.1, 1.2, 2.0 plus EDR, 3.0 plus HB, and version 4. Also version 5 is better and will “boast quadruple the range, double the speed, and boosts broadcast messaging capacity by 800%. It also introduces the mesh networking capability mentioned above.” according to knowtechie.com.

    On the other hand people use wired headphones everyday because they’re convenient and you don’t have to charge them. While this is true, the bluetooth headphones provide a better sound and bass that the wired headphones can’t provide.

    Bluetooth will keep working on the wireless capabilities to improve the connection from farther distances.
