AKG K52
Audio-Technica ATH-M30x
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
Audio-Technica ATH-M30x
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
Audio-Technica ATH-M30x
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

220g

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
Audio-Technica ATH-M30x
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.travel bag is included
AKG K52
Audio-Technica ATH-M30x
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

18Hz

15Hz

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

22000Hz

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 K52
Audio-Technica ATH-M30x
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

110dB/mW

96dB/mW

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

32 Ohms

47 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.
6.has a neodymium magnet
AKG K52
Audio-Technica ATH-M30x
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG K52
Audio-Technica ATH-M30x
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
