With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

390g

719g

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

Sound quality

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

54000Hz

28000Hz

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

106dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
4.has a neodymium magnet
AKG K812
Sennheiser HD 579
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
5.impedance

36 Ohms

50 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.

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
AKG K812
Sennheiser HD 579
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG K812
