Design

1.has stereo speakers
JLab Audio Q1M
Optoma NuForce BE Free5
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 a detachable cable
JLab Audio Q1M
Optoma NuForce BE Free5
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.sweat resistance
JLab Audio Q1M
Optoma NuForce BE Free5
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
4.weight

45g

12.6g

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.
5.weather-sealed (splashproof)
JLab Audio Q1M
Optoma NuForce BE Free5
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
6.can be folded
JLab Audio Q1M
Optoma NuForce BE Free5
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

20Hz

20Hz

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

20000Hz

20000Hz

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
JLab Audio Q1M
Optoma NuForce BE Free5
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)
JLab Audio Q1M
Optoma NuForce BE Free5
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.sound pressure level

86dB/mW

95dB/mW

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

16 Ohms

16 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.

Power

1.has a rechargeable battery
JLab Audio Q1M
Optoma NuForce BE Free5
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
2.has a battery level indicator
JLab Audio Q1M
Optoma NuForce BE Free5
