Design

1.has an over-the-ear form
JBL J88
Sony MDR ZX300
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.
2.has a detachable cable
JBL J88
Sony MDR ZX300
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

907g

120g

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.
4.can be folded
JBL J88
Sony MDR ZX300
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
5.travel bag is included
JBL J88
Sony MDR ZX300
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
6.has a tangle free cable
JBL J88
Sony MDR ZX300
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

8Hz

10Hz

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

24000Hz

24000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction
JBL J88
Sony MDR ZX300
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
JBL J88
Sony MDR ZX300
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.
5.impedance

32 Ohms

24 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.
6.has a neodymium magnet
JBL J88
Sony MDR ZX300
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
