Sennheiser HD 280 Pro
Sennheiser HD 429s
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
Sennheiser HD 280 Pro
Sennheiser HD 429s
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 280 Pro
Sennheiser HD 429s
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

285g

219g

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
Sennheiser HD 280 Pro
Sennheiser HD 429s
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.cable length

3m

1.2m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

8Hz

18Hz

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

25000Hz

22000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction
Sennheiser HD 280 Pro
Sennheiser HD 429s
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

113dB/mW

110dB/mW

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