1.has stereo speakers
Sony MDR-X10
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-X10
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-X10
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
5.travel bag is included
Sony MDR-X10
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
6.has an on-ear form
Sony MDR-X10
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.

Sound quality

1.highest frequency


The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
2.lowest frequency


The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.has passive noise reduction
Sony MDR-X10
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.sound pressure level


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

24 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.
6.has a neodymium magnet
Sony MDR-X10
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.


1.has a 3.5mm male connector
Sony MDR-X10
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.


1.can be used as a headset
Sony MDR-X10
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
2.number of microphones


More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
3.has an in-line control panel
Sony MDR-X10
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
