Sound quality

1.has passive noise reduction
HyperX Cloud Revolver S
SteelSeries Arctis 9X
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
2.highest frequency

28000Hz

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
4.has a neodymium magnet
HyperX Cloud Revolver S
SteelSeries Arctis 9X
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
6.impedance

30 Ohms

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.
7.sound pressure level

104.5dB/mW

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (SteelSeries Arctis 9X)

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
8.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
HyperX Cloud Revolver S
SteelSeries Arctis 9X
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
9.diaphragm size

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (HyperX Cloud Revolver S)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (SteelSeries Arctis 9X)

The diaphragm moves air back and forth to create sound. The bigger the diaphragm, the more bass it can produce.
