Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG N40
Westone UM3X RC
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
Westone UM3X RC
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.travel bag is included
AKG N40
Westone UM3X RC
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
4.has an in-ear form
AKG N40
Westone UM3X RC
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.
5.has a tangle free cable
AKG N40
Westone UM3X RC
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
6.has an L-shaped plug
AKG N40
Westone UM3X RC
An L-shaped plug is better if the jack is on the left or right side of the device, so that the cable isn't bent, and is less likely to break when the device is in your pocket.

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

18000Hz

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
Westone UM3X RC
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

124dB/mW

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

20 Ohms

56 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
Westone UM3X RC
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
Westone UM3X RC

2.Has an in-line control panel
AKG N40
Westone UM3X RC
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
