Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Philips O'Neill THE CONSTRUCT

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
Philips O'Neill THE CONSTRUCT

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.

Philips O'Neill THE CONSTRUCT

The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

5.has an L-shaped plug
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Philips O'Neill THE CONSTRUCT

An L-shaped plug is better if the jack is on the left or right side of the device, so that the cable isn't bent, and is less likely to break when the device is in your pocket.

6.has a coiled cord

Sound quality

1.highest frequency

20000Hz

24000Hz

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

Best

Sony MDR-Z1R

120000Hz

2.lowest frequency

30Hz

12Hz

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

Best

Sony MH1CBLK

1Hz

3.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Philips O'Neill THE CONSTRUCT

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

105dB/mW

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

Best

AKG K553 Pro

144dB/mW

5.has a neodymium magnet
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Philips O'Neill THE CONSTRUCT

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

40 Ohms

32 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.
