Design

1.volume

548.72cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
7.has a neodymium magnet
Sony SRS-XB13
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
8.has a detachable cable
Sony SRS-XB13
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.

Sound quality

1.has stereo speakers
Sony SRS-XB13
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.has a subwoofer
Sony SRS-XB13
Devices with a subwoofer have a higher quality, deeper bass.
4.Has a passive radiator
Sony SRS-XB13
A passive radiator is a type of driver (speaker) that doesn't have a voice coil and a magnet. The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep bass tones.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
A magnetic shielding limits the coupling of a magnetic field between two devices. The purpose is to prevent magnetic fields from interfering with electrical devices and avoid distortion (of TV, monitors, hard drives etc.).
