Design

1.has stereo speakers
JVC HA-S900
Shure SE425

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
JVC HA-S900
Shure SE425

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.

3.has a detachable cable

Shure SE425

With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.

4.can be folded

Shure SE425

Folding devices are good for transporting as they take up less space in your bag.

5.has an in-ear form
JVC HA-S900
Shure SE425

The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.

6.has a tangle free cable

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

8Hz

20Hz

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

Best

Sony MH1CBLK

1Hz

2.highest frequency

26000Hz

19000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.

Best

Sony MDR-Z1R

120000Hz

3.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
JVC HA-S900
Shure SE425

The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.

4.sound pressure level

106dB/mW

109dB/mW

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

Best

AKG K553 Pro

144dB/mW

5.has a neodymium magnet
JVC HA-S900
Shure SE425

Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

6.impedance

40 Ohms

22 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.

Best

Flips Solo 2 Social

4 Ohms
