Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audio-Technica ATH-M50
Klipsch Mode M40
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-M50
Klipsch Mode M40
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
Audio-Technica ATH-M50
Klipsch Mode M40
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

284g

356g

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.can be folded
Audio-Technica ATH-M50
Klipsch Mode M40
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.travel bag is included
Audio-Technica ATH-M50
Klipsch Mode M40
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

15Hz

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

28000Hz

20000Hz

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-M50
Klipsch Mode M40
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Audio-Technica ATH-M50
Klipsch Mode M40
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
5.sound pressure level

99dB/mW

97.5dB/mW

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

38 Ohms

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.

Power

1.has a battery level indicator
Audio-Technica ATH-M50
Klipsch Mode M40
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
2.has a removable battery
Audio-Technica ATH-M50
