Design

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

10g

15g

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.weather-sealed (splashproof)
AKG K3003
Focal Sphear S
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
6.can be folded
AKG K3003
Focal Sphear S
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.

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
Focal Sphear S
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 K3003
Focal Sphear S
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

125dB/mW

103dB/mW

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

Power

1.has a rechargeable battery
AKG K3003
Focal Sphear S
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
2.has a battery level indicator
AKG K3003
Focal Sphear S
