The Shure Aonic 40 have a weight of 311g, these weigh below 320g, which we consider as the highest average a headphone should weigh for comfort during long use. We prefer a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
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, OneOdio Studio Wireless C are one of those.
With a detachable cable, Shure Aonic 40 too can use alternative cables and if the cable is pulled, it will pop out instead of breaking.
OneOdio Studio Wireless C 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, OneOdio Studio Wireless C's cable is designed to minimize tangling. Constant twisting of the cables can also lead to microfractures in the copper wires, affecting sound quality, or
rendering your headphones defective.
Shure Aonic 40 too have a cable designed to help prevent tangles.
Over-ear headphones have larger earpads that fit around your entire ear OneOdio Studio Wireless C 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.
OneOdio Studio Wireless C have stereo speakers, what this means is that OneOdio Studio Wireless C's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Shure Aonic 40 and OneOdio Studio Wireless C 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 of incoming noise and then inverts the soundwaves 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 zero hence "diluting" the 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 OneOdio Studio Wireless C 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 while at it. Shure Aonic 40's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
High frequency response measures if and how well an audio component reproduces high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal on the way through. Shure Aonic 40's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the 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, OneOdio Studio Wireless C's measurement is 110dB/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. OneOdio Studio Wireless C driver unit is 50mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Shure Aonic 40 driver unit is 40mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of OneOdio Studio Wireless C 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 it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating 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 conductor, it faces electrical resistance that counters the flow of current. The resistance of a conductor is measured in ohms. OneOdio Studio Wireless C's impedance is 32Ohms, the lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
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 OneOdio Studio Wireless C 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. OneOdio Studio Wireless C's battery life is 110 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.
OneOdio Studio Wireless C have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights show the charging status of your headphones.
Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. OneOdio Studio Wireless C's battery power is 1000mAh, 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.
OneOdio Studio Wireless C's battery can be recharged and used over again.
The Shure Aonic 40 too have a rechargeable battery.
OneOdio Studio Wireless C can be used wirelessly, wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
The Shure Aonic 40 also can be used wirelessly
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. OneOdio Studio Wireless C has a v5.2
Shure Aonic 40 has a Bluetooth version of v5. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
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 OneOdio Studio Wireless C can connect at a 10meters 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. This means that it is commonly used in stereo headphones to your phone or connecting your phone to an external amplifier, sound bars, your car radio, etc.
OneOdio Studio Wireless C has this connector giving it a wider range of connectivity with most of the sound devices out there. All plugs have at least a tip and sleeve with the number of rings that stand as a differentiating factor.
Shure Aonic 40 too have this kind of connector
There is a control panel on the OneOdio Studio Wireless C body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
The Shure Aonic 40 too have a control panel on them.
OneOdio Studio Wireless C can be used as a headset.
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
Shure Aonic 40 can be used as a headset. since they have a built-in microphone
Carrying headphones without a case, or putting them in bags without a casing can easily put them at risk of getting damaged. The Shure Aonic 40 come with their own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
