Sennheiser IE 800

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.has a tangle free cable

Sound quality

1.highest frequency

22000Hz

45000Hz

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

Best

Sony MDR-Z1R

120000Hz

2.lowest frequency

15Hz

5Hz

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

Best

Sony MH1CBLK

1Hz

3.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
Onkyo IE-HF300
Sennheiser IE 800

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

105dB/mW

125dB/mW

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

Best

AKG K553 Pro

144dB/mW

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.

Best

Flips Solo 2 Social

4 Ohms

6.driver unit size

14.3mm

7mm

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

Best

Audeze LCD2 Classic

106mm
