The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

Shorter Cable Length

The Audio-Technica ATH-CKS990IS is a 1.2m cable length pair of headphones, and so does the Audio-Technica ATHSR5BT. That's 1.8m shorter than the Audio-Technica ATHAD500X, the Audio-Technica ATHAD700X and the Audio-Technica ATHM50X (3m). More ...

The length of the cable between the headphones and the jack.

Not As Many Stockists
