Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG K10
Sony MDR-MA900
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 K10
Sony MDR-MA900
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

72g

195g

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 a tangle free cable
AKG K10
Sony MDR-MA900
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
5.has an on-ear form
AKG K10
Sony MDR-MA900
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.has an L-shaped plug
AKG K10
Sony MDR-MA900
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.highest frequency

13000Hz

40000Hz

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

98dB/mW

104dB/mW

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

360 Ohms

12 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.
4.has a neodymium magnet
AKG K10
Sony MDR-MA900
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.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG K10
Sony MDR-MA900
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
