Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG N40
Sony XBA-S65
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
Sony XBA-S65
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.sweat resistance
AKG N40
Sony XBA-S65
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
4.weight

22g

10g

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.
5.weather-sealed (splashproof)
AKG N40
Sony XBA-S65
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
6.travel bag is included
AKG N40
Sony XBA-S65
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

10Hz

6Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

40000Hz

24000Hz

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
Sony XBA-S65
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

105dB/mW

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

20 Ohms

24 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.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG N40
Sony XBA-S65
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
