Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG K15
Sony XBA-H1
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 a detachable cable
AKG K15
Sony XBA-H1
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

98g

7g

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.can be folded
AKG K15
Sony XBA-H1
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
5.travel bag is included
AKG K15
Sony XBA-H1
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
6.has an in-ear form
AKG K15
Sony XBA-H1
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

20Hz

5Hz

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

25000Hz

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 K15
Sony XBA-H1
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

113dB/mW

105dB/mW

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

32 Ohms

40 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.
6.driver unit size

40mm

9mm

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
AKG K15
Sony XBA-H1
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG K15
