Audio Technica ATH-DSR5BT
Philips SHB9100
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.
3.weight

140g

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.

Sound quality

1.has a neodymium magnet
Audio Technica ATH-DSR5BT
Philips SHB9100
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
2.lowest frequency

5Hz

18Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.driver unit size

9.8mm

40mm

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

40000Hz

21000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
5.sound pressure level

100dB/mW

103dB/mW

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

Microphone

1.number of microphones

1

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
