Design

1.has stereo speakers
Sony MDR-XB50AP
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.weight

8g

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.
3.has an in-ear form
Sony MDR-XB50AP
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.
4.cable length

1.2m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
5.has an L-shaped plug
Sony MDR-XB50AP
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.

Sound quality

1.highest frequency

24000Hz

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

4Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.sound pressure level

110dB/mW

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

16 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-XB50AP
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

12mm

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

Features

1.can be used as a headset
Sony MDR-XB50AP
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

1

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-XB50AP
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
