2.has passive noise reduction
Ultrasone HFI-580
Ultrasone PRO 900
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
3.highest frequency

22000Hz

42000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Ultrasone HFI-580

5.has a neodymium magnet
Ultrasone HFI-580
Ultrasone PRO 900
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.sound pressure level

101dB/mW

96dB/mW

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

32 Ohms

40 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.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
9.diaphragm size
