Top specs and features

Design

1.has stereo speakers
Sennheiser IE 60
Shure SE315

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 a detachable cable

Shure SE315

With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.

3.has an in-ear form

Shure SE315

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.

4.has included ear pads

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.highest frequency

18000Hz

18500Hz

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

10Hz

22Hz

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.sound pressure level

115dB/mW

116dB/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
Shure SE315

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

27 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.has a neodymium magnet
Sennheiser IE 60
Shure SE315

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.has a 3.5mm male connector
