What's the difference between ear buds and headphones?

Headphones connect with wires or a wireless signal to a source such as an audio amplifier, radio, CD player, mobile phone or portable media player. There are on-ear and over-ear versions. Earbuds, sometimes known as earphones, are small speakers designed to fit directly into your ear. There are two varieties here. Earbuds rest on the outer concha ridge of the ear, located in the center of your outer ear. In-ear models fit into the ear canal.
