Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG N40
SoundMagic E11D
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
SoundMagic E11D
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
SoundMagic E11D
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
4.weight

22g

15g

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
SoundMagic E11D
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
6.travel bag is included
AKG N40
SoundMagic E11D
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

10Hz

15Hz

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

22000Hz

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
SoundMagic E11D
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
AKG N40
SoundMagic E11D
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
5.sound pressure level

115dB/mW

90dB/mW

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

20 Ohms

42 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.

Power

1.Has USB Type-C
AKG N40
SoundMagic E11D
The USB Type-C features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
AKG N40
SoundMagic E11D
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG N40
SoundMagic E11D
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
3.supports Wi-Fi

AKG N40
SoundMagic E11D
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
3.number of microphones

1

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.control panel placed on a device
AKG N40
SoundMagic E11D
