Why is Fostex TH-5 better than Audeze Sine?

Top specs and features

Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audeze Sine
Fostex TH-5

Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

2.has a detachable cable
Audeze Sine
Fostex TH-5

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

3.weight

230g

250g

Best

Sony MDR-EX150AP

3g

4.can be folded
Audeze Sine
Fostex TH-5

Folding devices are good for transporting as they take up less space in your bag.

5.has an on-ear form
Audeze Sine
Fostex TH-5

This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.

6.has a straight plug
Audeze Sine
Fostex TH-5

A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

1.highest frequency

50000Hz

20000Hz

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

2.lowest frequency

10Hz

20Hz

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

3.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
Audeze Sine
Fostex TH-5

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

120dB/mW

96dB/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.impedance

20 Ohms

44 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

6.has a neodymium magnet
Audeze Sine
Fostex TH-5

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

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
Audeze Sine
Fostex TH-5

A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features

1.can be used as a headset
Audeze Sine
Fostex TH-5

A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for applications which require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones etc.

2.has an in-line control panel
Audeze Sine
Fostex TH-5

There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
