A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

15Hz

21Hz

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

24000Hz

18000Hz

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
Philips SHP8000
Sennheiser HD 206
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

104dB/mW

108dB/mW

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

32 Ohms

24 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.has a neodymium magnet
