AKG K701
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has an over-the-ear form
AKG K52
AKG K701
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.
3.has a detachable cable
AKG K52
AKG K701
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

200g

235g

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.can be folded
AKG K52
AKG K701
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.cable length

2.5m

3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

18Hz

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

39800Hz

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

110dB/mW

105dB/mW

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

32 Ohms

62 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.driver unit size

40mm

45mm

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

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
