Urbanears Plattan

12 Reasons why Urbanears Plattan is better

than the average

1.Sizably lower low-frequency
20Hzvs 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.Has sound isolation / passive noise reduction
Yesvs No (51% don't have it)
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
3.Noticeably higher sound pressure level
115dB/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.
4.Has a tangle free cable
Yesvs No (73% don't have it)
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
5.Has an in-line control panel
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
6.Can be folded
Yesvs No (70% don't have it)
Folding devices are good for transporting as they take up less space in your bag.
7.Explicitly bigger driver unit
40mmvs 34mm (the average)
vs 100mm (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
8.Is used as a headset
Yesvs No (67% don't have it)
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for applications which require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones etc.
9.A lot more microphone(s)
1vs 1 (the average)
vs 8 (best: Parrot Zik Sport)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
10.Has an on-ear form
Yesvs No (78% don't have it)
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.
11.Clearly bigger diaphragm
40mmvs 32mm (the average)
vs 85mm (best: Oppo PM-1)
The diaphragm moves air back and forth to create sound. The bigger the diaphragm, the more bass it can produce.
Surely at half price or less depending upon where it's purchased, this is a lot better value.
