Design

1.has stereo speakers
Sony MDR-XB400
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-XB400
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

150g

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.

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.

The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

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

22000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction
Sony MDR-XB400

100dB/mW

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

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.

Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
