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

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

25000Hz

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
Audio-Technica ATH-AD700X
Philips Fidelio L2
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.

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