Design

1.has stereo speakers
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Focal Sphear S
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 detachable cable
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Focal Sphear S
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.sweat resistance
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Focal Sphear S
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
4.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Focal Sphear S
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
5.can be folded
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Focal Sphear S
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.travel bag is included
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Focal Sphear S
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

10Hz

20Hz

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

25000Hz

20000Hz

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
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Focal Sphear S
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Focal Sphear S
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
5.sound pressure level

107dB/mW

103dB/mW

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

47 Ohms

16 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.

Power

1.has a rechargeable battery
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Focal Sphear S
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
2.has a battery level indicator
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
