Design

1.has stereo speakers
Sennheiser CX 5.00i
Sennheiser MM 70i
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.weight

16g

13g

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.
3.travel bag is included
Sennheiser CX 5.00i
Sennheiser MM 70i
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
4.has an in-ear form
Sennheiser CX 5.00i
Sennheiser MM 70i
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.cable length

1.2m

1.4m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has an L-shaped plug
Sennheiser CX 5.00i
Sennheiser MM 70i
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

1.lowest frequency

16Hz

12Hz

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

22000Hz

22000Hz

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
Sennheiser CX 5.00i
Sennheiser MM 70i
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

118dB/mW

116dB/mW

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

18 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
Sennheiser CX 5.00i
Sennheiser MM 70i
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.Can be used wirelessly
