The portable audio market is booming, according to one gadgets expert, who observed that it has never been easier to listen to music and media on the move.
Richard Sharp, technology editor at gadgetsandgizmos.org, observed that consumers demand quality when it comes to portable audio devices, which will "inevitably lead to higher levels of spending".
"Premium headphones immerse the user in sound whilst keeping others in the room oblivious to what you are listening to," Mr Sharp commented.
"Technology such as noise cancelling has revolutionised the way people work, rest and play."
In addition to this, Mr Sharp noted that product placement has a large role to play, observing that consumers feel compelled to buy the latest headset when they see their idols wearing them.
This comes shortly after Heather McLean, editor for online mobile news publication Smart Gorillas, observed that consumers still demand the "latest and greatest" wireless communication devices.
Ms McLean observed that the only demographic satisfied with a phone that offers the bare essentials is workers "looking for a solid work horse".
