Sound quality

1.sound pressure level

108dB/mW

102dB/mW

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

41500Hz

51000Hz

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

9Hz

6Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
4.has passive noise reduction
Sennheiser HD 660 S
Sennheiser HD 800
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
5.impedance

150 Ohms

300 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 active noise-cancelling (noise control)
Sennheiser HD 660 S
Sennheiser HD 800
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
Sennheiser HD 660 S
Sennheiser HD 800
