1.has stereo speakers
Sony MDR-ZX100
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.


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 on-ear form
Sony MDR-ZX100
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.
4.has a tangle free cable
Sony MDR-ZX100
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
5.cable length


A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has an L-shaped plug
Sony MDR-ZX100
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.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.

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.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Sony MDR-ZX100
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.


1.has a 3.5mm male connector
Sony MDR-ZX100
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
