Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG K 512 MKII
Philips SHL3160BK
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

200g

136.1g

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 512 MKII
Philips SHL3160BK
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
4.has an on-ear form
AKG K 512 MKII
Philips SHL3160BK
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.cable length

2.5m

1.2m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has an L-shaped plug
AKG K 512 MKII
Philips SHL3160BK
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.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

16Hz

8Hz

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

20000Hz

22000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.sound pressure level

109dB/mW

107dB/mW

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

32 Ohms

24 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.
5.has a neodymium magnet
AKG K 512 MKII
Philips SHL3160BK
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
