    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to the field of headphones. A pair of headphones (200) may have a headband (210) comprising a flexible elongated strip (211) and a rigid leg (220) such as a spring wire. The elongated strip (211) may have a first end (211a) attached to a first earpiece (230a) and a second end (211b) attached to a second earpiece (230b). Furthermore, the elongated strip (211) is configured to extend in a curvature from the first end (211a) to the second end (211b) to form an arced strip (211) which is configured to extend along a portion of a head of a user of the pair of headphones (200). The leg (220) abuts against the elongated strip (211) and further extends along the elongated strip (211) from the first end (211a) to the second end (211b). Moreover, the leg (220) may advantageously be positioned along a center portion of the elongated strip (211).
