Onkyo IE-CTI300

12 Reasons why Onkyo IE-CTI300 is better

than the average

1.Significantly lower low-frequency
15Hzvs 38Hz (the average)
vs 1Hz (best: Sony MH1CBLK)
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
12gvs 191g (the average)
vs 3g (best: AKG IP2)
3.Distinctly lower impedance
32Ohmsvs 42Ohms (the average)
vs 4Ohms (best: Flips Solo 2 Social)
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.
4.Has sound isolation / passive noise reduction
Yesvs No (51% don't have it)
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
5.A tad higher sound pressure level
105dB/mWvs 104dB/mW (the average)
vs 130dB/mW (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
6.Has a tangle free cable
Yesvs No (73% don't have it)
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
7.Has a detachable cable
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
8.Has an in-line control panel
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
9.Has included ear pads
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
Allows you to change ear pads without buying new ones.
10.Has an L-shaped plug
Yesvs No (68% don't have it)
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.
11.Much more microphone(s)
1vs 1 (the average)
vs 8 (best: Parrot Zik Sport)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
12.Has an in-ear form
Yesvs No (67% don't have it)
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.
