Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG K 272 HD
Grado RS1e

Grado RS1e
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

240g

255g

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.has an on-ear form
AKG K 272 HD
Grado RS1e
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.
5.has a straight plug
AKG K 272 HD
Grado RS1e
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.
6.has an open-back design
AKG K 272 HD
Grado RS1e
The device is designed in a way that allows sound to go out through the back of the ear cups, which usually have vents or perforations. This design provides very natural and accurate sound.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

16Hz

12Hz

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

28000Hz

30000Hz

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 272 HD
Grado RS1e
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

99.8dB/mW

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

55 Ohms

32 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 272 HD
Grado RS1e
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
