Design

1.has an over-the-ear form
AKG K271 MKII
HiFiMAN HE-400
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.
2.has a detachable cable
AKG K271 MKII
HiFiMAN HE-400
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

240g

440g

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 K271 MKII
HiFiMAN HE-400
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
5.cable length

3m

3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.Has a coil cable
AKG K271 MKII
HiFiMAN HE-400
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.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

16Hz

20Hz

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

28000Hz

35000Hz

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 K271 MKII
HiFiMAN HE-400
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

104dB/mW

92.5dB/mW

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

55 Ohms

35 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.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG K271 MKII
HiFiMAN HE-400
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
