Price comparison

Design

1.has a detachable cable
AKG K3003
AKG Y40
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
2.sweat resistance
AKG K3003
AKG Y40
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
3.weight

10g

133g

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.weather-sealed (splashproof)
AKG K3003
AKG Y40
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
5.can be folded
AKG K3003
AKG Y40
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.travel bag is included
AKG K3003
AKG Y40
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

10Hz

16Hz

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

22000Hz

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 Y40
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

120dB/mW

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

8 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.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG K3003
AKG Y40
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features

1.number of microphones

1

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
2.Has an in-line control panel
AKG K3003
AKG Y40
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
3.warranty period

2

2

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