Design

1.has stereo speakers
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.travel bag is included
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
3.has an in-ear form
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision
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.
4.has a tangle free cable

Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has an L-shaped plug

Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision
An L-shaped plug is better if the jack is on the left or right side of the device, so that the cable isn't bent, and is less likely to break when the device is in your pocket.

Sound quality

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

25000Hz

21000Hz

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
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision
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

107dB/mW

113dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
6.impedance

47 Ohms

16 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.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE
Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
