Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audeze Penrose
SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has an over-the-ear form
Audeze Penrose
SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
3.has a detachable cable
Audeze Penrose
SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

320g

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless)

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.
5.cable length

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Audeze Penrose)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless)

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.waterproof depth rating

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Audeze Penrose)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless)

The waterproof depth rating indicates how well the device is protected against water ingress and water pressure. Devices which can withstand more water pressure are better for swimming or diving.
7.has RGB lighting

8.has an earbud form
Audeze Penrose
SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless
The earbud form is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. For some people it is more comfortable than in-ear form.
9.has an in-ear form
Audeze Penrose
SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.

Sound quality

1.has passive noise reduction
Audeze Penrose
SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
2.highest frequency

50000Hz

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
4.has a neodymium magnet
Audeze Penrose
SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
6.impedance

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Audeze Penrose)

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.
7.sound pressure level

120dB/mW

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless)

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
8.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Audeze Penrose
SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
9.diaphragm size

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Audeze Penrose)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless)

The diaphragm moves air back and forth to create sound. The bigger the diaphragm, the more bass it can produce.
