Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
AKG Y20U
RHA MA390 Universal
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 Y20U
RHA MA390 Universal
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

9.75g

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.
4.weather-sealed (splashproof)
AKG Y20U
RHA MA390 Universal
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
5.travel bag is included
AKG Y20U
RHA MA390 Universal
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
6.has an in-ear form
AKG Y20U
RHA MA390 Universal
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

13Hz

16Hz

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

22500Hz

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 Y20U
RHA MA390 Universal
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

89dB/mW

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

38 Ohms

16 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.
6.has a neodymium magnet
AKG Y20U
RHA MA390 Universal
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
AKG Y20U
RHA MA390 Universal
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG Y20U
RHA MA390 Universal
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 Y20U
RHA MA390 Universal
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 Y20U
RHA MA390 Universal
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
