Design

1.has an over-the-ear form
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS77BK
HiFiMAN HE-500
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
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS77BK
HiFiMAN HE-500
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

7g

502g

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
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS77BK
HiFiMAN HE-500
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an in-ear form
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS77BK
HiFiMAN HE-500
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.
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

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

25000Hz

50000Hz

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
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS77BK
HiFiMAN HE-500
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

106dB/mW

89dB/mW

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

14 Ohms

38 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.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
Audio-Technica ATH-CKS77BK
HiFiMAN HE-500
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
