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

For example

Microsoft Surface Headphones

5.has an in-ear form
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Sennheiser CX 1.00

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

Sony MH1CBLK

1Hz

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.

Best

Sony MDR-Z1R

120000Hz

3.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
Sennheiser CX 1.00

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

119dB/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
Sennheiser CX 1.00

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

28 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.
