Final Sonorous X
Sony MDR-Z7
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.

Sony MDR-Z7
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

630g

335g

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.cable length

1.5m

3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has a straight plug

A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Final Sonorous X
Sony MDR-Z7
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
2.sound pressure level

105dB/mW

102dB/mW

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

16 Ohms

70 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.
4.has a neodymium magnet
Final Sonorous X
Sony MDR-Z7
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
5.driver unit size

50mm

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
