Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
KEF M500
Meze 99 Neo
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
KEF M500
Meze 99 Neo
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
KEF M500
Meze 99 Neo
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

208g

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
KEF M500
Meze 99 Neo
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.travel bag is included
KEF M500
Meze 99 Neo
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

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

25000Hz

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

103dB/mW

103dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.has a neodymium magnet
KEF M500
Meze 99 Neo
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
6.impedance

32 Ohms

26 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.Can be used wirelessly
KEF M500
Meze 99 Neo
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
KEF M500
Meze 99 Neo
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features

1.can be used as a headset
KEF M500
Meze 99 Neo
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
