    Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE

    The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

    2.has an in-ear form

    Beyerdynamic DX 160 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.

    3.has included ear pads

    Beyerdynamic DX 160 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.

    6.cable length

    1.2m

    1.2m

    A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

    Sound quality

    1.highest frequency

    23000Hz

    25000Hz

    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

    12Hz

    10Hz

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

    1Hz

    3.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
    Beyerdynamic DX 120 iE
    Beyerdynamic DX 160 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

    107dB/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.has a neodymium magnet

    Beyerdynamic DX 160 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.

    6.impedance

    47 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.
