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
HiFiMAN HE-560
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

Sennheiser HD 598
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

375g

270g

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.
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.

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