Design

1.has stereo speakers
Plantronics Rig 500E
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has an over-the-ear form
Plantronics Rig 500E
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.
3.weight

200g

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.
4.has an open-back design
Plantronics Rig 500E
The device is designed in a way that allows sound to go out through the back of the ear cups, which usually have vents or perforations. This design provides very natural and accurate sound.
5.has a straight plug
Plantronics Rig 500E
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

1.has passive noise reduction
Plantronics Rig 500E
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
2.highest frequency

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.lowest frequency

20Hz

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

32 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.
5.driver unit size

40mm

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
6.sound pressure level

113dB/mW

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

Microphone

1.has a noise-canceling microphone
Plantronics Rig 500E
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
2.highest mic frequency

10000Hz

The highest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording treble.
3.mic sensitivity

-45dBV/Pa

It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the microphone can pick up.
4.lowest mic frequency

100Hz

The lowest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording bass.
5.number of microphones

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
6.has a removable microphone
