Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
Grado RS1i
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.weight

255g

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.
3.has an on-ear form
Grado RS1i
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.
4.cable length

2m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
5.has a straight plug
Grado RS1i
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.
6.has an open-back design
Grado RS1i
The device is designed in a way that allows sound to go out through the back of the ear cups, which usually have vents or perforations. This design provides very natural and accurate sound.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

12Hz

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

30000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.sound pressure level

98dB/mW

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

32 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.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Grado RS1i
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
6.driver unit size

40mm

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

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
Grado RS1i
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
