4.sweat resistance
Audio-Technica ATH-CKR7TW
Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 SE
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
5.weight

8g

289g

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.
6.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Audio-Technica ATH-CKR7TW
Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 SE
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

5Hz

20Hz

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

45000Hz

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-CKR7TW
