Focal Elegia

Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
5.weight

430g

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)

The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.

Sound quality

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

41000Hz

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

4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Focal Elegia
Sennheiser HD 650
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

105dB/mW

103dB/mW

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