Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG K121 Studio
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
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 K121 Studio
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
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

220g

190g

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 K121 Studio
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
5.has an on-ear form
AKG K121 Studio
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
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.
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

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

22500Hz

20000Hz

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 K121 Studio
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
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

114dB/mW

96dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.has a neodymium magnet
AKG K121 Studio
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
6.impedance

55 Ohms

47 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.Can be used wirelessly
AKG K121 Studio
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG K121 Studio
