1.has stereo speakers
Sony MDR-V55
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a detachable cable
Sony MDR-V55
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.


We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.can be folded
Sony MDR-V55
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
5.has an on-ear form
Sony MDR-V55
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.
6.has a tangle free cable
Sony MDR-V55
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency


The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency


The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.sound pressure level


Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.

40 Ohms

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.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Sony MDR-V55
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.driver unit size


The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
