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

HiFiMAN HE-400
Meze 99 Classics
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
HiFiMAN HE-400
Meze 99 Classics
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

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.
5.can be folded
HiFiMAN HE-400
Meze 99 Classics

6.travel bag is included
HiFiMAN HE-400

15Hz

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

25000Hz

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

92.5dB/mW

103dB/mW

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

35 Ohms

32 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.
