2.has an over-the-ear form
Audio-Technica ATH-M50x
Shure SRH1540
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

Shure SRH1540
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.

2.highest frequency

28000Hz

25000Hz

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
