Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1000
Sony XBA-H2
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Sony XBA-H2
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
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

The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an in-ear form

Sony XBA-H2
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 a tangle free cable

The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

26000Hz

25000Hz

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

106dB/mW

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

16 Ohms

40 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.
