Design

1.sweat resistance
AKG K3003
AKG Y23U
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
AKG K3003
AKG Y23U
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.travel bag is included
AKG K3003
AKG Y23U
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
4.has an in-ear form
AKG K3003
AKG Y23U
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.
5.has a tangle free cable
AKG K3003
AKG Y23U
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
6.cable length

1.2m

1m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

10Hz

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

30000Hz

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 K3003
AKG Y23U
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

125dB/mW

98dB/mW

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

8 Ohms

16 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 K3003
AKG Y23U
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features

1.can be used as a headset
AKG K3003
AKG Y23U
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
2.number of microphones

1

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
3.Has an in-line control panel
AKG K3003
AKG Y23U
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
4.warranty period

2

2

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
