Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

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.
