Sennheiser HD 660 S
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Audio-Technica ATH-W1000x
Sennheiser HD 660 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 660 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

350g

260g

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.

6.travel bag is included

5Hz

9Hz

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

42000Hz

41500Hz

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-W1000x
Sennheiser HD 660 S
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

100dB/mW

108dB/mW

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

42 Ohms

150 Ohms
