3.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO
Sony MDR-Z1R

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

100dB/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.impedance

80 Ohms

64 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
