Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23BK
Urbanears Sumpan
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.weight

26g

20g

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.
3.travel bag is included
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23BK
Urbanears Sumpan
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
4.has an in-ear form
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23BK
Urbanears Sumpan
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 a tangle free cable
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23BK
Urbanears Sumpan
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
6.has an L-shaped plug
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23BK
Urbanears Sumpan
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

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

20000Hz

20000Hz

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-ANC23BK
Urbanears Sumpan
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC23BK
Urbanears Sumpan
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
5.sound pressure level

105dB/mW

101dB/mW

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

32 Ohms

39 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.
