AKG K518
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 K240 Studio
AKG K518
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.has a detachable cable

AKG K518
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

240g

150g

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.

Sound quality

1.sound pressure level

104dB/mW

115dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
2.highest frequency

25000Hz

24000Hz

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

15Hz

16Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
4.has passive noise reduction
AKG K240 Studio
AKG K518
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
5.impedance

55 Ohms

32 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.
