weight

309g

298g

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.
has a detachable cable
KEF Mu7
Technics EAH-A800
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
Ingress Protection (IP) rating

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (KEF Mu7)

IPX4

The first number of the IP rating refers to protection against dust, while the second number refers to protection against liquid. E.g. a first number of 6 denotes that it is completely dustproof, and a second number of 7 denotes that the device can withstand full immersion in water.

Sound quality

has active noise cancellation (noise control)
KEF Mu7
Technics EAH-A800
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.
lowest frequency

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (KEF Mu7)

4Hz

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

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (KEF Mu7)

40000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
impedance

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (KEF Mu7)

34 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.
sound pressure level

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (KEF Mu7)

105dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
has a neodymium magnet
KEF Mu7
Technics EAH-A800
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
has passive noise reduction
KEF Mu7
Technics EAH-A800
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.

Power

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Technics EAH-A800)

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.
has a rechargeable battery
KEF Mu7
Technics EAH-A800
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
has a removable battery
KEF Mu7
Technics EAH-A800
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.

Wireless

The connectivity type of the headphones.
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.
has aptX Adaptive
KEF Mu7
Technics EAH-A800
aptx Adaptive is an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that is developed by Qualcomm. It has a variable bit rate (between 279kbps and 420kbps), which means it can adjust the bit rate for different scenarios, such as listening to HD audio or reducing interference from other devices.
has aptX
KEF Mu7
Technics EAH-A800
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.
has LDAC
KEF Mu7
Technics EAH-A800
LDAC is a codec developed by Sony for Bluetooth audio. It is capable of a very high bitrate of 990kbps, which provides high resolution audio. It can also automatically adjust to a lower bitrate of 330kbps or 660kbps to increase stability.
has aptX Low Latency
KEF Mu7
Technics EAH-A800
