Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audio-Technica ATH-ES700
Westone UM2 RC
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-ES700
Westone UM2 RC
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-ES700
Westone UM2 RC
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.travel bag is included
Audio-Technica ATH-ES700
Westone UM2 RC
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an in-ear form
Audio-Technica ATH-ES700
Westone UM2 RC
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
Audio-Technica ATH-ES700
Westone UM2 RC
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

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

30000Hz

18000Hz

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-ES700
Westone UM2 RC
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

104dB/mW

119dB/mW

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

56 Ohms

27 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.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
Audio-Technica ATH-ES700
