AKG K3003
HiFiMAN HE-400
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
HiFiMAN HE-400
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
HiFiMAN HE-400
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
4.weight

10g

440g

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
HiFiMAN HE-400
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
6.travel bag is included
AKG K3003
HiFiMAN HE-400
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

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

35000Hz

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
HiFiMAN HE-400
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

92.5dB/mW

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

8 Ohms
