AKG N40
Sennheiser IE 800
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 a detachable cable
AKG N40
Sennheiser IE 800
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

22g

8g

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 N40
Sennheiser IE 800
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an in-ear form
AKG N40
Sennheiser IE 800
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 N40
Sennheiser IE 800
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

2.highest frequency

40000Hz

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 N40
Sennheiser IE 800
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

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

20 Ohms
