Design

1.has stereo speakers
JVC HA-NC250
Sennheiser HD 238
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
JVC HA-NC250
Sennheiser HD 238
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
JVC HA-NC250
Sennheiser HD 238
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

150g

106g

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
JVC HA-NC250
Sennheiser HD 238
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.travel bag is included
JVC HA-NC250
Sennheiser HD 238
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

8Hz

16Hz

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

24000Hz

23000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
JVC HA-NC250
Sennheiser HD 238
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.
4.sound pressure level

102dB/mW

114dB/mW

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

40 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.
6.has a neodymium magnet
JVC HA-NC250
Sennheiser HD 238
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

Power

1.has a removable battery
JVC HA-NC250
Sennheiser HD 238
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
