'Detachable Cable' denotes whether the headphones have a cable that can be easily detached, or whether it's hard-wired to the unit.

A detachable cable is helpful, because it allows for easy replacement if something goes wrong with the cable. It also means that if you drop the headphones or get them caught on something, then the wire simply disconnects rather than yanking the headphones and possibly damaging them.

Not As Many Stockists

The Sony MDRE9LPBLU is only stocked by 6 shops, however the Shure SE215 is stocked by 7 retailers and the YURBUDS Focus is stocked by 7 stores. More ...

$5 Cheaper

The Scosche thudBUDS costs $5.19, whereas the Shure SE215 is $59.00, the Veho Z-1 is $25.93 and the YURBUDS Focus is $9.95.

The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

A bigger driver unit means that the headphones will be capable of generating more sound, making them louder. It doesn't necessarily mean the sound will be better quality, just louder. However it's a good starting point if you're looking for a pair of powerful headphones.

A Bit Smaller Headphone Sensitivity
