Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
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-M20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
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.weight

230g

190g

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.cable length

3m

3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
5.Has a coil cable
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
A coil cable offers more flexibility, as it can be further extended when in use, as well as retracted to take up less space when not in use.
6.has a straight plug
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

30Hz

15Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

20000Hz

20000Hz

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-M20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
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

98dB/mW

96dB/mW

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

40 Ohms

47 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.
6.has a neodymium magnet
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
