6.has a tangle free cable
AKG N20 NC
Philips CitiScape Uptown
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

20Hz

12Hz

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

23500Hz

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

5.sound pressure level

115dB/mW

103dB/mW

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