Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG N40
Velodyne vQuiet
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
Velodyne vQuiet
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
AKG N40
Velodyne vQuiet
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.can be folded
AKG N40
Velodyne vQuiet
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
5.travel bag is included
AKG N40
Velodyne vQuiet
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
6.has an in-ear form
AKG N40
Velodyne vQuiet
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.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

10Hz

20Hz

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

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 N40
Velodyne vQuiet
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
Velodyne vQuiet
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

105dB/mW

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

20 Ohms

32 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
Velodyne vQuiet
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features

1.can be used as a headset
AKG N40
Velodyne vQuiet
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
2.number of microphones

1

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
3.Has an in-line control panel
AKG N40
Velodyne vQuiet
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
