Sennheiser HD 558
Sennheiser RS 185
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
Sennheiser RS 185
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 RS 185
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

260g

310g

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.has a straight plug
Sennheiser HD 558
Sennheiser RS 185
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.
6.has an open-back design
Sennheiser HD 558
Sennheiser RS 185
The device is designed in a way that allows sound to go out through the back of the ear cups, which usually have vents or perforations. This design provides very natural and accurate sound.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

15Hz

17Hz

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

28000Hz

22000Hz

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

112dB/mW

106dB/mW

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

50 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.
5.has a neodymium magnet
