Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Sony MDR-1R
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-CKS1000
Sony MDR-1R
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.has a detachable cable
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Sony MDR-1R
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

12g

240g

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.
5.travel bag is included
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Sony MDR-1R
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-CKS1000
Sony MDR-1R
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

26000Hz

80000Hz

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
Sony MDR-1R
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

105dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Sony MDR-1R
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
6.impedance

16 Ohms

24 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 battery level indicator
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Sony MDR-1R
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
2.has a removable battery
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000

Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Sony MDR-1R
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
3.control panel placed on a device
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Sony MDR-1R
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
4.Has an in-line control panel
