Design

1.has an over-the-ear form
Audeze LCD-2
HiFiMAN HE-400
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.
2.has a detachable cable
Audeze LCD-2
HiFiMAN HE-400
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

522g

440g

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.travel bag is included
Audeze LCD-2
HiFiMAN HE-400
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.cable length

2.5m

3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has a straight plug
Audeze LCD-2
HiFiMAN HE-400
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

5Hz

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

20000Hz

35000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.sound pressure level

130dB/mW

92.5dB/mW

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

60 Ohms

35 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.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Audeze LCD-2
HiFiMAN HE-400
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.has a 3.5mm male connector
Audeze LCD-2
HiFiMAN HE-400
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
