Design

Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
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.
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
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.
7.can be folded
AKG K518
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

Sound quality

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
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.
8.driver unit size

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
9.diaphragm size

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The diaphragm moves air back and forth to create sound. The bigger the diaphragm, the more bass it can produce.

Power

1.Battery life

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
4.charge time

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The time it takes to fully charge the battery.
5.Has USB Type-C
AKG K518
The USB Type-C features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
6.battery power

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
7.Battery life of charging case

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The battery life of the charging case as given by the manufacturer. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your headphones on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.

Connectivity

Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.Bluetooth version

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
Bluetooth aptX is an audio codec used for transmitting hi-resolution audio wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled devices. Developed by Qualcomm, the aptX audio technology includes variations such as aptX HD, aptX Low Latency, and aptX Adaptive.
5.maximum Bluetooth range

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The device can connect at a greater distance via Bluetooth or infrared to another device.
Wi-Fi 6, released in 2019, is based on the IEEE 802.11ax wireless LAN standard. Designed to operate in all frequency bands between 1 and 6 GHz, it offers higher data rates and lower latency compared to previous Wi-Fi technologies.
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
Device supports fast Bluetooth pairing using NFC so it can communicate with other devices over Bluetooth. You can fastly pair devices without entering a code by simply holding one device next to the device with which it is to be paired.

Features

A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
3.number of microphones

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
5.warranty period

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
With voice prompts, you will automatically receive information via audio messages – for instance, you may find out that the battery is running low, and it's time to recharge the device.
The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
9.multipoint count

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Multipoint allows you to link to more Bluetooth devices and switch between them. For example you can easily switch calls from one device to another without having to manually disconnect and reconnect.
