Sony MDR 7506
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 N40
Sony MDR 7506
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.has a detachable cable

Sony MDR 7506
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
