Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

15Hz

20Hz

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

Sony MH1CBLK

1Hz

2.highest frequency

22000Hz

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-M30x
Beyerdynamic DTX 501 p

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

96dB/mW

104dB/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-M30x
Beyerdynamic DTX 501 p

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

47 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.

Best
