Audio Technica ATH ANC900BT's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH ANC900BT got a clearer and crispier treble than the Adidas RPT 02 Sol
Sound pressure is the average variation in atmospheric pressure caused by the sound, the sound level .i.e how loud something is can be perceived differently by different people so we need to have a way of getting an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The sound pressure level, SPL, is the pressure level of a sound, measured in decibels, dB, Adidas RPT 02 Sol's measurement is 105dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Audio Technica ATH ANC900BT's sound pressure level measurement is 103dB/mW.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. Adidas RPT 02 Sol driver unit is 45mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Audio Technica ATH ANC900BT driver unit is 40mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Adidas RPT 02 Sol by 5mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty reproducing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better sound.
Defined as the device's resistance to the electromagnetic current, when electricity flows through a wire, it faces electrical resistance that counters the flow of current. The resistance of a conductor is measured in ohms. Adidas RPT 02 Sol's impedance is 32Ohms, the lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
Audio Technica ATH ANC900BT's impedance is 35Ohms. The impedance of earbuds is the electrical resistance of the driver unit present on the inside.
If your headphones play wirelessly, cancel ambient noise, or enhance your listening experience with active features, their battery life will reduce over time.
