Price comparison

Design

1.weight

9g

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.
2.travel bag is included
Grado GR8
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
3.has an in-ear form
Grado GR8
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
4.cable length

1.3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
5.has an L-shaped plug
Grado GR8
An L-shaped plug is better if the jack is on the left or right side of the device, so that the cable isn't bent, and is less likely to break when the device is in your pocket.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

20Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

20000Hz

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
Grado GR8
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.sound pressure level

118dB/mW

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

120 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.has a 3.5mm male connector
Grado GR8
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
