Detachable cables are cables that have connectors on both ends. One end goes into your headphone cups, while the other end is inserted into an audio source. Some new headphones, and not just the expensive ones, are coming with detachable cables, Shure Aonic 40 are one of those.
House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency are foldable, which makes them more portable. Foldable headphones are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
The Shure Aonic 40 too can fold up, foldable headphones can reduce their size by 60% to 70% when folded.
Twisted headphone cables can be a great source of annoyance and inconvenience, Shure Aonic 40's cable is designed to minimize tangling. Constant twisting of the cables can also lead to bends in the copper wires, affecting sound quality, or completely damaging your headphones.
By sweat resistance we mean that the wireless earbuds are protected in the presence of low-pressure water jets at any angle, this is determined by the IP Rating of the earbuds. Based on the ingress protection rating of the House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency they do have sweat resistance
Over-ear headphones have larger earpads that fit around your entire ear House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency have a comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This design is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors.
Shure Aonic 40 with this design offer potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency have stereo speakers, what this means is that House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Shure Aonic 40 and House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 outside (noise from your surrounding) and adding -1 inside (counter sound within the device) to make 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Shure Aonic 40 allow 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.
Passive Noise Cancellation uses well-designed ear cups to seal out environment noise. This is used for both in-ear earphones and over-ear headphones where the headphone itself will keep surrounding noise out.
The House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that also the Shure Aonic 40 isolates you from ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
Low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component reproduces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on the way through. House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
Shure Aonic 40's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
High frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component reproduces high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it. House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
Shure Aonic 40's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency driver unit is 40mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Shure Aonic 40 driver unit is 40mm in diameter, making both Shure Aonic 40, and House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency similar in how loud their sound gets , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty reproducing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better sound.
Impedance is the device's resistance to the electromagnetic current, when electricity flows through a wire, it experiences electrical resistance that counters the flow of current. The resistance of a wire is measured in ohms. House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency's impedance is 32Ohms, the lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
If your headphones play wirelessly, cancel ambient noise, or enhance your listening experience with active features, their battery life will reduce over time. The device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often. House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency's battery life is 34 hours
Shure Aonic 40's battery life is 25 hours. Each time you recharge your headphones, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first. But over a few years, you may find that your device, no longer plays for long like it used to.
It takes 2 hours to fully charge the House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the headphones for the first time or when they have been unused for extended periods.
Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency's battery power is 500mAh, more battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
A rechargeable battery is a type of electrical battery that can be charged, discharged into a load, and recharged many times, as opposed to a disposable or primary battery, which is supplied fully charged and discarded after use.
House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency's battery can be recharged and used over again.
The Shure Aonic 40 too have a rechargeable battery.
2.4GHz wireless is used for devices such as headsets such as the House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency, keyboards, and mice similar to Bluetooth but with a proprietary radio frequency. It typically offers better performance than Bluetooth, with low latency and good stability.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency has a v5.2
Shure Aonic 40 has a Bluetooth version of v5. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency support USB TYPE-C, an industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power on a single cable. The USB-C plug is now part and parcel of most current laptops, phones, and tablets, it features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
Shure Aonic 40 support APTX, a codec used for transmitting audio wirelessly with Bluetooth. It is developed by Qualcomm and supports 16-bit audio at a bit rate of 384kbps.
Shure Aonic 40 support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Bluetooth is a short-range wireless technology standard that is used for exchanging data between fixed and mobile devices over short distances. The House of Marley Positive Vibration Frequency can connect at a 15meters distance via Bluetooth or infrared to another device.
Being an industry standard audio plug, a standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
