24 Reasons why Sony MDR-1RBT is better

than the average

1.Notably higher high-frequency
80000Hzvs 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.Notably lower low-frequency
4Hzvs 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.Substantially lower impedance
24Ohmsvs 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 sound isolation / passive noise reduction
Yesvs No (51% don't have it)
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
5.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.
6.A tad higher sound pressure level
105dB/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.
7.Has a tangle free cable
Yesvs No (73% don't have it)

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
11.Has an L-shaped plug
Yesvs No (68% don't have it)

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.
13.Can be used wirelessly
Yesvs No (86% don't have it)
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
14.Control panel placed on a device
Yesvs No (88% don't have it)
