Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
3.weight

10g

255g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.weather-sealed (splashproof)

Grado RS1e
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
5.travel bag is included

Grado RS1e
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
6.has an in-ear form
AKG K3003
Grado RS1e
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.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

10Hz

12Hz

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

30000Hz

30000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction
AKG K3003
Grado RS1e
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

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