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 600
Shure SRH1840
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.

30000Hz

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

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