3.sweat resistance
Creative EP-3NC
SoundMagic MP21
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
4.weight

27g

8g

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.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Creative EP-3NC
SoundMagic MP21
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
6.travel bag is included
Creative EP-3NC
SoundMagic MP21
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

6Hz

15Hz

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

23000Hz

22000Hz

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
Creative EP-3NC
SoundMagic MP21
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)
Creative EP-3NC
SoundMagic MP21
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

104dB/mW

97dB/mW

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

16 Ohms

12 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.
