Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
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
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
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
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.sweat resistance
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
5.weight

450g

420g

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.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

5Hz

10Hz

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

40000Hz

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
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
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)
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
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

94dB/mW

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

80 Ohms

20 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.

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
3.supports Bluetooth pairing using NFC
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
Device supports fast Bluetooth pairing using NFC so it can communicate with other devices over Bluetooth. You can fastly pair devices without entering a code by simply holding one device next to the device with which it is to be paired.
4.supports Wi-Fi
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.

Features

1.can be used as a headset
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
2.has a noise-canceling microphone
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
3.Has voice prompts
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
With voice prompts, you will automatically receive information via audio messages – for instance, you may find out that the battery is running low, and it's time to recharge the device.
4.has voice commands
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
You can use your voice to control key functions of the device and you can easily access your device without pushing any button.
5.has an accelerometer
Focal Elear
Quad ERA-1
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes between vertical and horizontal positions.
