Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG K 142 HD
Stax SR-009
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has an over-the-ear form
AKG K 142 HD
Stax SR-009
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
3.weight

225g

453g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.can be folded
AKG K 142 HD
Stax SR-009
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
5.has an on-ear form
AKG K 142 HD
Stax SR-009
This device 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.
6.cable length

3m

2.5m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

18Hz

5Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

24000Hz

42000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction
AKG K 142 HD
Stax SR-009
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
AKG K 142 HD
Stax SR-009
This type of device allows 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. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
5.sound pressure level

101dB/mW

118dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
6.impedance

55 Ohms

145 Ohms

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG K 142 HD
Stax SR-009
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
