Sennheiser HD 280 Pro
Sennheiser HD 559
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 559
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

680.4g

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 559

6.cable length

3m

3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

8Hz

14Hz

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

26000Hz

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 559
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

108dB/mW

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

64 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
Sennheiser HD 280 Pro
