AKG K872
Fostex TH-900
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.

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

45000Hz

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 K872
Fostex TH-900
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

112dB/mW

100dB/mW

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

36 Ohms

25 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.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
