Design

1.has stereo speakers
Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)
Sony MDR-Z1R
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
Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)
Sony MDR-Z1R
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
Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)
Sony MDR-Z1R
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

440g

385g

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.
5.travel bag is included
Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)
Sony MDR-Z1R
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
6.has a tangle free cable
Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)
Sony MDR-Z1R
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

5Hz

4Hz

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

50000Hz

120000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)
Sony MDR-Z1R
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.
4.sound pressure level

126dB/mW

100dB/mW

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

600 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.
6.has a neodymium magnet
Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)
Sony MDR-Z1R
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.Can be used wirelessly
Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)
Sony MDR-Z1R
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)
Sony MDR-Z1R
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
