JLab Audio Play
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has an over-the-ear form
JLab Audio Play
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.
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.has a detachable cable
JLab Audio Play
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.

Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
7.can be folded
JLab Audio Play
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
8.has a tangle free cable
JLab Audio Play
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
9.travel bag is included
JLab Audio Play
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
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.
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
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.
7.has a neodymium magnet
JLab Audio Play
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.
9.diaphragm size

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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

Power

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
3.Battery life of charging case

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The battery life of the charging case as given by the manufacturer. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your headphones on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
The time it takes to fully charge the battery.
5.Has USB Type-C
JLab Audio Play
The USB Type-C features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
8.has a removable battery

Connectivity

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
2.Can be used wirelessly
JLab Audio Play
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
3.Has Bluetooth aptX
JLab Audio Play
aptX is a codec used for transmitting audio wirelessly with Bluetooth. It is developed by Qualcomm, and supports 16-bit audio at a bit rate of 384kbps.

The device can connect at a greater distance via Bluetooth or infrared to another device.
Wi-Fi 6, released in 2019, is based on the IEEE 802.11ax wireless LAN standard. Designed to operate in all frequency bands between 1 and 6 GHz, it offers higher data rates and lower latency compared to previous Wi-Fi technologies.
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
Device supports fast Bluetooth pairing using NFC so it can communicate with other devices over Bluetooth. You can fastly pair devices without entering a code by simply holding one device next to the device with which it is to be paired.

Features
