Design

1.sweat resistance
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.has stereo speakers
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
4.has an in-ear form
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
5.weight

13g

19.8g

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.
6.has no wires or cables
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
True wireless devices have no cables connecting any part of the device together. This is an important distinction as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the two earbuds together.

Sound quality

1.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
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.
2.has passive noise reduction
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
3.has a neodymium magnet
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
6.highest frequency

20000Hz

20000Hz

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

Microphone

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
2.has a noise-canceling microphone
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.

Power

The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
2.has a battery level indicator
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.has a rechargeable battery
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
4.battery power

85mAh

80mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The device can connect at a greater distance via Bluetooth or infrared to another device.
4.supports Bluetooth pairing using NFC
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
Device supports fast Bluetooth pairing using NFC so it can communicate with other devices over Bluetooth. You can fastly pair devices without entering a code by simply holding one device next to the device with which it is to be paired.

Features

1.can be used as a headset
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
2.control panel placed on a device
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
3.has a mute function
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
4.travel bag is included
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.Has an in-line control panel
B&O Beoplay E8
Optoma NuForce BE6i
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.

Miscellaneous

1.impedance

16 Ohms

20 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.
