Design

1.has stereo speakers
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H3
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.sweat resistance
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H3
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
3.weight

12.8g

20g

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.
4.travel bag is included

Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an in-ear form
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H3
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
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.
6.has a tangle free cable
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H3
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

20Hz

10Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

16000Hz

20000Hz

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
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H3
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
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

100dB/mW

115dB/mW

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

18 Ohms

32 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.driver unit size

10.8mm

9.2mm

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
