Design

1.has an over-the-ear form
AKG K3003
Focal Spirit One S
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.
2.has a detachable cable
AKG K3003
Focal Spirit One 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 Spirit One S
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
4.weight

10g

280g

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 Spirit One S
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
6.travel bag is included
AKG K3003
Focal Spirit One S
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

10Hz

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

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
Focal Spirit One S
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

104dB/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
Focal Spirit One S
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features
