Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG K3003
Audio-Technica ATH-ES10

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 K3003
Audio-Technica ATH-ES10

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.

Folding devices are good for transporting as they take up less space in your bag.

5.has an in-ear form
AKG K3003
Audio-Technica ATH-ES10

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.

6.has a tangle free cable

2.highest frequency

30000Hz

40000Hz

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

Best

Sony MDR-Z1R

3.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
AKG K3003
Audio-Technica ATH-ES10

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

102dB/mW

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

Best

AKG K553 Pro

144dB/mW

5.has a neodymium magnet
AKG K3003
Audio-Technica ATH-ES10

Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

6.impedance

8 Ohms

42 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.
