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.has an in-ear form
Apple In-Ear Headphones
Sennheiser CX 5.00i
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.
5.has an L-shaped plug
Apple In-Ear Headphones
Sennheiser CX 5.00i
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.
6.cable length

1.2m

1.2m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.has passive noise reduction
Apple In-Ear Headphones
Sennheiser CX 5.00i
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
2.lowest frequency

5Hz

16Hz

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

21000Hz

22000Hz

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

109dB/mW

118dB/mW

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

23 Ohms

18 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.

Connectivity
