Grado GS3000e
Sennheiser HD 800 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
Grado GS3000e
Sennheiser HD 800 S
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.sweat resistance

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.

Sound quality

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

51000Hz

51000Hz

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
Grado GS3000e

Sennheiser HD 800 S
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.impedance

32 Ohms

300 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.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
