Stax SR-207
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 598
Stax SR-207
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

Stax SR-207
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

270g

340g

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

3m

2.5m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has a straight plug
