Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Grado RS2e
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

12g

227g

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-CKS1000
Grado RS2e
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-CKS1000
Grado RS2e
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-CKS1000
Grado RS2e
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
6.has an on-ear form
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Grado RS2e
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.

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

26000Hz

28000Hz

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-CKS1000
Grado RS2e
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.sound pressure level

106dB/mW

99.8dB/mW

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

16 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.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Grado RS2e
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features

1.Has an in-line control panel
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Grado RS2e
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
