6.has an on-ear form
AKG K514 MKII

10Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

20000Hz

35000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.sound pressure level

107dB/mW

95dB/mW

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

32 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.
5.has a neodymium magnet
AKG K514 MKII
Beyerdynamic DT 440 Edition
