Design

1.has stereo speakers
Sennheiser HD 518
Sennheiser IE 60
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has an over-the-ear form
Sennheiser HD 518
Sennheiser IE 60
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
3.has a detachable cable
Sennheiser HD 518
Sennheiser IE 60
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

255g

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.can be folded
Sennheiser HD 518
Sennheiser IE 60
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.travel bag is included
Sennheiser HD 518
Sennheiser IE 60
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

14Hz

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

26000Hz

18000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Sennheiser HD 518
Sennheiser IE 60
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
4.sound pressure level

108dB/mW

115dB/mW

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

50 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 HD 518
Sennheiser IE 60
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
Sennheiser HD 518
Sennheiser IE 60
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
Sennheiser HD 518
