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, Beats Studio3 Wireless are one of those.
Beats Studio3 Wireless 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 Beats Studio3 Wireless 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.
Sony WH CH520 have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Beats Studio3 Wireless also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud 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 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
Beats Studio3 Wireless 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 Sony WH CH520 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 Beats Studio3 Wireless 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. Sony WH CH520's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
Beats Studio3 Wireless's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal 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. Sony WH CH520's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
Beats Studio3 Wireless's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, 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 the means to get 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, Beats Studio3 Wireless's measurement is 114dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Impedance is the device's resistance to the electromagnetic current, as electricity flows through a wire, it experiences electrical resistance that counters the flow of current. The resistance of a conductor is measured in ohms. Beats Studio3 Wireless'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. Sony WH CH520's battery life is 40 hours
Beats Studio3 Wireless'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 3 hours to fully charge the Sony WH CH520'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.

The Beats Studio3 Wireless too have a rechargeable battery.
Sony WH CH520 can be used wirelessly, wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
The Beats Studio3 Wireless 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. Sony WH CH520 has a v5.2
Beats Studio3 Wireless has a Bluetooth version of v4. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Sony WH CH520 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.
Sony WH CH520 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 Sony WH CH520 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. Beats Studio3 Wireless 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.
