A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

24000Hz

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
5.sound pressure level

101dB/mW

112dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
6.has a neodymium magnet
