Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.has active noise-canceling (noise control)
Sennheiser HD 800
Sony MDR-Z7
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.
