Grado SR125e
Sennheiser HD 598
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has an over-the-ear form
Grado SR125e
Sennheiser HD 598
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

With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.has an on-ear form
Grado SR125e
Sennheiser HD 598
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.
5.cable length

2.3m

3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has a straight plug

A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

20Hz

12Hz

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

20000Hz

38500Hz

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

99.8dB/mW

112dB/mW

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

32 Ohms

50 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

Sennheiser HD 598
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

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
