Design

1.weight

363g

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.
2.cable length

1.2m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
3.has a tangle free cable
SteelSeries Siberia Elite
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
4.has a straight plug
SteelSeries Siberia Elite
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

1.highest frequency

28000Hz

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

16Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.has a neodymium magnet
SteelSeries Siberia Elite
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.impedance

32 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.driver unit size

50mm

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

113dB/mW

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

Microphone

1.has a noise-canceling microphone
SteelSeries Siberia Elite
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
2.highest frequency mic

16000Hz

The highest frequencies that the mic can pick up well. Better for recording treble.
3.mic sensitivity

-38dBV/Pa

It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the microphone can pick up.
4.lowest frequency mic

75Hz

The lowest frequencies that the mic can pick up well. Better for recording bass. If a microphone is going to be used for speech, a voice microphone, it must have great gain for bass, since human voice is in the low frequencies.
5.number of microphones

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
