Sony MDR-V55
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
Beats by Dre Solo HD
Sony MDR-V55
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

Sony MDR-V55
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

160g

220g

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.

2.highest frequency

20000Hz

25000Hz

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

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