Design

1.sweat resistance
Erato Rio 3
Phiaton PS 20 BT
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Erato Rio 3
Phiaton PS 20 BT
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.has stereo speakers
Erato Rio 3
Phiaton PS 20 BT
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
4.has an in-ear form
Erato Rio 3
Phiaton PS 20 BT
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.
5.weight

28g

16g

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.
6.has no wires or cables
Erato Rio 3
Phiaton PS 20 BT
True wireless devices have no cables connecting any part of the device together. This is an important distinction as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the two earbuds together.

Sound quality

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.
2.has passive noise reduction
Erato Rio 3
Phiaton PS 20 BT
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
3.driver unit size

14.2mm

14.3mm

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
5.highest frequency

20000Hz

22000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
6.sound pressure level

100dB/mW

40dB/mW

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

Microphone

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
2.has a noise-canceling microphone
Erato Rio 3
Phiaton PS 20 BT
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.

Power

1.has a battery level indicator
Erato Rio 3
Phiaton PS 20 BT
