3.sound pressure level

115dB/mW

118dB/mW

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

Best

AKG K553 Pro

144dB/mW

4.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
Sennheiser IE 60
Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear

The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.

5.impedance

16 Ohms

18 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
