Top specs and features

Design

1.has stereo speakers
Beyerdynamic DTX 101 iE
Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

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 a tangle free cable
Beyerdynamic DTX 101 iE
Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

3.has an in-ear form
Beyerdynamic DTX 101 iE
Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

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.

4.has included ear pads

Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

Allows you to change ear pads without buying new ones.

5.travel bag is included

Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

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.

Sound quality

1.highest frequency

23000Hz

23000Hz

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

10Hz

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
Beyerdynamic DTX 101 iE
Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

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

102dB/mW

107dB/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

12 Ohms

47 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

Flips Solo 2 Social

4 Ohms

6.has a neodymium magnet

Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector

Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features

1.can be used as a headset
Beyerdynamic DTX 101 iE
Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE

A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for applications which require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones etc.

2.has an in-line control panel
