14 Reasons why JBL J88 is better

than the average

1.Notably lower low-frequency
8Hzvs 38Hz (the average)
vs 1Hz (best: Sony MH1CBLK)
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.Sizably lower impedance
32Ohmsvs 42Ohms (the average)
vs 4Ohms (best: Flips Solo 2 Social)
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.
3.Has sound isolation / passive noise reduction
Yesvs No (51% don't have it)
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.Has a tangle free cable
Yesvs No (73% don't have it)
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
5.Has a detachable cable
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
6.Has an in-line control panel
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
7.Can be folded
Yesvs No (70% don't have it)
Folding devices are good for transporting as they take up less space in your bag.
8.Clearly bigger driver unit
50mmvs 34mm (the average)
vs 100mm (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
9.Has included ear pads
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
Allows you to change ear pads without buying new ones.
10.Has an L-shaped plug
Yesvs No (68% don't have it)
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.
11.Has an over-the-ear form
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
12.Has active noise canceling / noise reduction
Yesvs No (87% don't have it)
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.
13.Lots more microphone(s)
1vs 1 (the average)
vs 8 (best: Parrot Zik Sport)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
