Price comparison

Design

1.has a detachable cable
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC25
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
2.sweat resistance
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC25
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
3.weight

104g

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.
4.can be folded
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC25
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
5.travel bag is included
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC25
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
6.has an in-ear form
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC25
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
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

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-ANC25
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
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-ANC25
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
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

100dB/mW

115dB/mW

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

20 Ohms

32 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.

Power

1.has a removable battery
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC25
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
