1.has stereo speakers
Sennheiser HD 558
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 558
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 558
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.


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


A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has a straight plug
Sennheiser HD 558
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency


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


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


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

50 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.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Sennheiser HD 558
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.


1.warranty period


When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
