Sony MH1CBLK

1Hz

2.highest frequency

50000Hz

51000Hz

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

120000Hz

3.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
HiFiMAN HE-560
Sennheiser HD 800

The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.

For example

Mpow Thor

4.sound pressure level

90dB/mW

102dB/mW

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

Best

AKG K553 Pro

144dB/mW

5.impedance

50 Ohms

300 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.

Best

Flips Solo 2 Social

4 Ohms

6.has active noise cancelling (noise reduction)
