Design

1.has an over-the-ear form
Beyerdynamic DT 880 Edition
HiFiMAN HE-400
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
Beyerdynamic DT 880 Edition
HiFiMAN HE-400
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

290g

440g

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
Beyerdynamic DT 880 Edition
HiFiMAN HE-400
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has a tangle free cable
Beyerdynamic DT 880 Edition
HiFiMAN HE-400

6.cable length

3m

3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

5Hz

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

35000Hz

35000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.sound pressure level

96dB/mW

92.5dB/mW

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

32 Ohms

35 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.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Beyerdynamic DT 880 Edition
HiFiMAN HE-400
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

Connectivity

Beyerdynamic DT 880 Edition
HiFiMAN HE-400
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
