Sound quality

1.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Focal Spark
Meze Audio Rai Penta
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.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.highest frequency

20000Hz

45000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
4.driver unit size

9.5mm

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Meze Audio Rai Penta)

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

16 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.
6.sound pressure level

103dB/mW

100dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
7.has a neodymium magnet
Focal Spark
Meze Audio Rai Penta
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
