Price comparison

Design

1.has a detachable cable
AKG Y40
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
2.weight

133g

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.
3.can be folded
AKG Y40
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
4.travel bag is included
AKG Y40
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an on-ear form
AKG Y40
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.
6.cable length

1.2m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

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

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 Y40
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

120dB/mW

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

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.
6.driver unit size

40mm

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
AKG Y40
