Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG K 430
JVC HA-NCX78
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.weight

110g

37g

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.
3.can be folded
AKG K 430
JVC HA-NCX78
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
4.travel bag is included
AKG K 430
JVC HA-NCX78
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an on-ear form
AKG K 430
JVC HA-NCX78
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

1.1m

1.5m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

12Hz

18Hz

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

22000Hz

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 430
JVC HA-NCX78
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 430
JVC HA-NCX78
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

125dB/mW

105dB/mW

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

32 Ohms

36 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 430
JVC HA-NCX78
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features

1.Has an in-line control panel
AKG K 430
JVC HA-NCX78
