18Hzvs 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.
2.Has a neodymium magnet
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)

3.Has an in-line control panel
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
4.Can be folded
Yesvs No (70% don't have it)
Folding devices are good for transporting as they take up less space in your bag.
5.Significantly 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.
6.Is used as a headset
Yesvs No (67% don't have it)
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for applications which require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones etc.
7.Has included ear pads
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
Allows you to change ear pads without buying new ones.
8.Has an L-shaped plug
Yesvs No (68% don't have it)
An L-shaped plug is better if the jack is on the left or right side of the device, so that the cable isn't bent, and is less likely to break when the device is in your pocket.
9.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.
10.Plenty more microphone(s)
1vs 1 (the average)
vs 8 (best: Parrot Zik Sport)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
11.Measurably bigger diaphragm
40mmvs 32mm (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.
