Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC33iS
Beyerdynamic DT 231 PRO
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 an over-the-ear form
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC33iS
Beyerdynamic DT 231 PRO
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
3.weight

26g

130g

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.travel bag is included
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC33iS
Beyerdynamic DT 231 PRO
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an in-ear form
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC33iS
Beyerdynamic DT 231 PRO
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.
6.has an L-shaped plug
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC33iS
Beyerdynamic DT 231 PRO
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

18000Hz

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-ANC33iS
Beyerdynamic DT 231 PRO
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-ANC33iS
Beyerdynamic DT 231 PRO
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

95dB/mW

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

32 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-ANC33iS
Beyerdynamic DT 231 PRO
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
