Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG N20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
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 N20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
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.weight

18g

230g

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.
4.travel bag is included
AKG N20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an in-ear form
AKG N20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
6.has a tangle free cable
AKG N20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

20Hz

30Hz

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

20000Hz

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 N20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
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

115dB/mW

98dB/mW

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

38 Ohms

40 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 N20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
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 N20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features

2.Has an in-line control panel
AKG N20
Audio-Technica ATH-M20
