Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audeze Sine
HiFiMAN HE-400

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
Audeze Sine
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.

3.weight

230g

440g

4.has a detachable cable
Audeze Sine
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.

5.can be folded
Audeze Sine
HiFiMAN HE-400

Folding devices are good for transporting as they take up less space in your bag.

6.has a straight plug

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.

Best

Sony MH1CBLK

1Hz

2.highest frequency

50000Hz

35000Hz

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

Best

Sony MDR-Z1R

120000Hz

3.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
Audeze Sine
HiFiMAN HE-400

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

92.5dB/mW

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

Best

AKG K553 Pro

144dB/mW

5.has a neodymium magnet
Audeze Sine
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.

6.impedance

20 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.

Features

1.has an in-line control panel
Audeze Sine
HiFiMAN HE-400

There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.

2.can be used as a headset
Audeze Sine
