Design

1.has a detachable cable
AKG K171 MKII
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
2.weight

240g

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.has an on-ear form
AKG K171 MKII
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.
4.cable length

3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
5.Has a coil cable
AKG K171 MKII
A coil cable offers more flexibility, as it can be further extended when in use, as well as retracted to take up less space when not in use.
6.has a straight plug
AKG K171 MKII
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

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

26000Hz

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 K171 MKII
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

107dB/mW

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

55 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

30mm

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