Optima batteries

Hey I was just wondering if anybody knows what makes optima batteries like twice as much money as the other brands? Do they just last a lot longer?

I believe(someone correct me if im wrong) that they hold their charge longer, and also have higher cranking amps. Often favored for those who have show cars, and play their stereo for long times while the engine is off/have a massive enough stereo that the alternator has trouble keeping up.
