Cuffie stratosferiche, i suoni sono dolci, i bassi definiti, il bilanciamento è eccezionale. Comodità: pesano solo 150g e questo peso è anche ben distribuito, il risultato è una comodità che non stanca anche dopo ascolti di 4-5 ore. Molti non ne apprezzano il fatto che siano molto strette alle orecchie, ma: 1- dopo qualche giorno si ammorbidiscono e non stringono come prima, e smettono anche di dar fastidio se si usano gli occhiali, come nel mio caso. 2- molto meglio una cuffia stretta alle orecchie di una cuffia il cui peso è tutto a carico dell'arco superiore. 3- isolamento passivo del rumore eccezionale. Me le sono portate a casa per 150 euro facendo un affarone, valgono ogni euro speso per acquistarle, specie ora (2022) che quasi tutti i servizi di streaming offrono qualità Hi-Fi a prezzi ragionevoli (ho smesso perfino di ascoltare i vinili).

Pros

  • Leggerezza
  • Qualità del suono
  • Cavo AUX rimovibile
  • Volume senza distorsione
  • Profondità dei bassi
  • Dolcezza degli alti
  • Ascolto immersivo anche con volume basso

Cons

  • archetto di plastica, ispira non troppa robustezza
  • assenza di custodia per trasportarle

Design

1.weight

155g

439.4g

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.
2.has a detachable cable
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H2
Sennheiser HD 4.30
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.Ingress Protection (IP) rating

Sennheiser HD 4.30
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.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.highest frequency

22000Hz

22000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
4.driver unit size

40mm

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sennheiser HD 4.30)

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

27 Ohms

18 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.
6.sound pressure level

99dB/mW

120dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
7.has a neodymium magnet
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H2
Sennheiser HD 4.30
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
8.has passive noise reduction
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H2
Sennheiser HD 4.30
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
