Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG K275
Sony XBA-NC85D
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 K275
Sony XBA-NC85D
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 K275
Sony XBA-NC85D
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

295g

6g

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.
5.can be folded
AKG K275
Sony XBA-NC85D
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.travel bag is included
AKG K275
Sony XBA-NC85D
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

16Hz

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

28000Hz

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 K275
Sony XBA-NC85D
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
AKG K275
Sony XBA-NC85D
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
5.sound pressure level

109dB/mW

106dB/mW

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

32 Ohms

8 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.

Power

1.has a battery level indicator
AKG K275
Sony XBA-NC85D
