Design

1.has a detachable cable
AKG K141 MKII
Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.

2.has an in-ear form
AKG K141 MKII
Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.

3.has a tangle free cable

Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

4.has included ear pads

Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

Allows you to change ear pads without buying new ones.

5.travel bag is included

Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

6.has an L-shaped plug
AKG K141 MKII
Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

An L-shaped plug is better if the jack is on the left or right side of the device, so that the cable isn't bent, and is less likely to break when the device is in your pocket.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

18Hz

12Hz

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

Best

Sony MH1CBLK

1Hz

2.highest frequency

24000Hz

23000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.

Best

Sony MDR-Z1R

120000Hz

3.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
AKG K141 MKII
Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.

4.sound pressure level

114dB/mW

107dB/mW

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

Best

AKG K553 Pro

144dB/mW

5.has a neodymium magnet
AKG K141 MKII
Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

6.impedance

55 Ohms

47 Ohms

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.

Best

Flips Solo 2 Social

4 Ohms
