Sound quality

1.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Monoprice Monolith M565C
Monoprice Monolith M650
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.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.highest frequency

50000Hz

20000Hz

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.
5.impedance

18 Ohms

64 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.sound pressure level

120dB/mW

100dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
7.has a neodymium magnet
Monoprice Monolith M565C
Monoprice Monolith M650
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
8.has passive noise reduction
Monoprice Monolith M565C
Monoprice Monolith M650
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
