Sennheiser IE 80
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.sweat resistance

Sennheiser IE 80
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
4.weight

20g

5g

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.
5.travel bag is included
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
Sennheiser IE 80
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
6.has an in-ear form
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
Sennheiser IE 80
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.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

10Hz

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

20000Hz

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
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
Sennheiser IE 80
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

115dB/mW

125dB/mW

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

32 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.
6.has a neodymium magnet
Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2
Sennheiser IE 80
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
