Design

1.has stereo speakers
HiFiMAN HE-560
Sennheiser HD 800
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 800
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 800
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

330g

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.cable length

2m

3m

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

Sennheiser HD 800
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

1.highest frequency

50000Hz

51000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
2.lowest frequency

15Hz

6Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.has passive noise reduction
HiFiMAN HE-560
Sennheiser HD 800
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.sound pressure level

90dB/mW

102dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.has active noise-canceling (noise control)
HiFiMAN HE-560
Sennheiser HD 800
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.
6.impedance

50 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.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
HiFiMAN HE-560
Sennheiser HD 800
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
