Philips SHP8500

9 Reasons why Philips SHP8500 is better

than the average

1.Explicitly higher high-frequency
28000Hzvs 25213Hz (the average)
vs 100000Hz (best: Sony MDR-1ABT)
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
2.Distinctly lower low-frequency
10Hzvs 38Hz (the average)
vs 1Hz (best: Sony MH1CBLK)
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.Measurably lower impedance
32Ohmsvs 42Ohms (the average)
vs 4Ohms (best: Flips Solo 2 Social)
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.
4.Has a neodymium magnet
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
5.Slightly higher sound pressure level
106dB/mWvs 104dB/mW (the average)
vs 130dB/mW (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
6.Vastly bigger driver unit
40mmvs 34mm (the average)
vs 100mm (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
7.Has an over-the-ear form
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
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.
8.Substantially longer cable
3mvs 2m (the average)
vs 6m (best: AKG Q 701)
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
9.Substantially bigger diaphragm
40.6mmvs 32.0mm (the average)
vs 85mm (best: Oppo PM-1)
The diaphragm moves air back and forth to create sound. The bigger the diaphragm, the more bass it can produce.
