10 Reasons why Sony MDR-1RNC is better

than the average

1.Clearly lower low-frequency
5Hzvs 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)
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
3.Has a detachable cable
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.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.
5.Noticeably bigger driver unit
50mmvs 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.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.
7.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.
8.Can be charged via standard USB cable
Yesvs No (88% don't have it)
It can be charged and operated with a standard USB cable connected to your computer, or with a USB power supply.
9.Has active noise canceling / noise reduction
Yesvs No (87% don't have it)
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.
10.Has a battery level indicator
Yesvs No (92% don't have it)
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
