7 Reasons why AKG K514 MKII is better

than the average

1.Notably lower low-frequency
16Hzvs 38Hz (the average)
vs 1Hz (best: Sony MH1CBLK)
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
190gvs 191g (the average)
vs 3g (best: AKG IP2)
3.Significantly lower impedance
32Ohmsvs 42Ohms (the average)
vs 4Ohms (best: Flips Solo 2 Social)
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.
4.Somewhat higher sound pressure level
107dB/mWvs 104dB/mW (the average)
vs 130dB/mW (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.Notably longer cable
3mvs 2m (the average)
vs 6m (best: AKG Q 701)
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.Has an on-ear form
Yesvs No (78% don't have it)
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.
