Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG K3003
Grado SR80i
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.sweat resistance
AKG K3003
Grado SR80i
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
3.weight

10g

130g

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
Grado SR80i
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
5.travel bag is included
AKG K3003
Grado SR80i
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
6.has an in-ear form
AKG K3003
Grado SR80i
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.

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
Grado SR80i
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

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.
6.has a neodymium magnet
AKG K3003
Grado SR80i
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
