Sennheiser HD 800 S
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
Audio-Technica ATH-AD2000X
Sennheiser HD 800 S
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.has a detachable cable

Sennheiser HD 800 S
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

265g

330g

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.
5.cable length

3m

3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has a straight plug

A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

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

45000Hz

51000Hz

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

40 Ohms

300 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.
4.driver unit size

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