1.Vastly higher high-frequency
30000Hzvs 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.Noticeably lower low-frequency

3.Noticeably lower impedance
32Ohmsvs 42Ohms (the average)
