45000Hzvs 25213Hz (the average)
vs 100000Hz (best: Sony MDR-1ABT)
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
2.Vastly lower low-frequency
5Hzvs 38Hz (the average)
vs 1Hz (best: Sony MH1CBLK)

3.Substantially lower impedance
25Ohmsvs 42Ohms (the average)
vs 4Ohms (best: Flips Solo 2 Social)
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.Notably bigger driver unit
50mmvs 34mm (the average)
vs 100mm (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)

6.Vastly longer cable
3mvs 2m (the average)
vs 6m (best: AKG Q 701)
