Sony MDR-NC13

15 Reasons why Sony MDR-NC13 is better

than the average

1.Appreciably lower low-frequency
10Hzvs 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.
19gvs 191g (the average)
vs 3g (best: AKG IP2)
3.Measurably lower impedance
16Ohmsvs 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 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.
5.Has a tangle free cable
Yesvs No (73% don't have it)
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
6.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.
7.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.
8.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.
9.Has included ear pads
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
Allows you to change ear pads without buying new ones.
10.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.
11.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.
12.Has a battery level indicator
Yesvs No (92% don't have it)
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
13.Way 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.
14.Has a removable battery
Yesvs No (93% don't have it)
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
15.Has an in-ear form
Yesvs No (67% don't have it)
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
