Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Sennheiser HD 660 S
Shure SRH1540
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.

41500Hz

25000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction
Sennheiser HD 660 S
Shure SRH1540
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.sound pressure level

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