Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG K 242 HD
Yamaha YER-500
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 242 HD
Yamaha YER-500
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.has a detachable cable
AKG K 242 HD
Yamaha YER-500
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.has an in-ear form
AKG K 242 HD
Yamaha YER-500
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
5.has an L-shaped plug
AKG K 242 HD
Yamaha YER-500
An L-shaped plug is better if the jack is on the left or right side of the device, so that the cable isn't bent, and is less likely to break when the device is in your pocket.
6.has a straight plug
AKG K 242 HD
Yamaha YER-500
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

15Hz

20Hz

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

25000Hz

21000Hz

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 242 HD
Yamaha YER-500
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.sound pressure level

91dB/mW

104dB/mW

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

55 Ohms

16 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.
6.has a neodymium magnet
AKG K 242 HD
Yamaha YER-500
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
AKG K 242 HD
Yamaha YER-500
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG K 242 HD
Yamaha YER-500
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
