Detachable cables are cables that have connectors on both ends. One end goes into your headphone cups, while the other end is inserted into a source device. Some new headphones, and not just the expensive ones, are coming with detachable cables, KVIDIO WH201A are one of those.
KVIDIO WH201A are foldable, which makes them more portable. Foldable headphones are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
Twisted headphone cables can be a great source of annoyance and inconvenience, Sony WH CH520'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 Sony WH CH520 they do have sweat resistance
Over-ear headphones have larger earpads that fit around your entire ear KVIDIO WH201A 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.
On-ear headphones have smaller earpads that sit on top of your ears, this Sony WH CH520 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.
KVIDIO WH201A have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Sony WH CH520 and KVIDIO WH201A have stereo speakers
Passive Noise Cancellation uses well-designed ear cups to seal out unwanted noise. This is used for both in-ear earphones and over-ear headphones where the headphone itself will keep surrounding noise out.
The KVIDIO WH201A 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 Sony WH CH520 isolates you from ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
Low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component reproduces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it. KVIDIO WH201A's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
Sony WH CH520's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
High frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device reproduces high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it. KVIDIO WH201A's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
Sony WH CH520's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
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, Sony WH CH520's measurement is 97dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. KVIDIO WH201A driver unit is 40mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Sony WH CH520 driver unit is 30mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of KVIDIO WH201A by 10mm , 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 yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce 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 wire is measured in ohms. KVIDIO WH201A's impedance is 32Ohms, the lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
Sony WH CH520's impedance is 35Ohms. The impedance of earbuds is the electrical resistance of the driver unit present on the inside.
Neodymium magnets if used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, SPL, with the use of high magnetic flux. The Sony WH CH520 have this type of magnet.
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. KVIDIO WH201A's battery life is 65 hours
Sony WH CH520's battery life is 40 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 2.5 hours to fully charge the KVIDIO WH201A'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.
