Design

1.has a detachable cable
Plantronics Rig 500
Plantronics Rig 800LX
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
2.weight

200g

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Plantronics Rig 800LX)

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.
3.has an over-the-ear form
Plantronics Rig 500
Plantronics Rig 800LX
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.
4.cable length

7.has an earbud form
Plantronics Rig 500
Plantronics Rig 800LX
The earbud form is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. For some people it is more comfortable than in-ear form.
8.has an in-ear form
Plantronics Rig 500
Plantronics Rig 800LX
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.
9.has an on-ear form
Plantronics Rig 500
Plantronics Rig 800LX
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.

2.highest frequency

20000Hz

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
