Sony NWZ-WH505

13 Reasons why Sony NWZ-WH505 is better

than the average

1.Explicitly lower low-frequency
5Hzvs 38Hz (the average)
vs 1Hz (best: Sony MH1CBLK)
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.Way lower impedance
40Ohmsvs 42Ohms (the average)
vs 4Ohms (best: Flips Solo 2 Social)
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.
3.Has a neodymium magnet
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
4.A shade higher sound pressure level
105dB/mWvs 104dB/mW (the average)
vs 130dB/mW (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.Has a detachable cable
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
6.Can be folded
Yesvs No (70% don't have it)

7.Explicitly bigger driver unit
40mmvs 34mm (the average)

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
8.Has an L-shaped plug

9.Has an over-the-ear form
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)

10.Can be used wirelessly
Yesvs No (86% don't have it)
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
11.Control panel placed on a device
Yesvs No (88% don't have it)
