Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
Sennheiser IE 60
Sony XBA-H1
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

5g

7g

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 IE 60
Sony XBA-H1
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
4.has included ear pads
Sennheiser IE 60
Sony XBA-H1
Allows you to change ear pads without buying new ones.
5.has an in-ear form
Sennheiser IE 60
Sony XBA-H1
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.
6.cable length

1.2m

1.2m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.highest frequency

18000Hz

25000Hz

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

10Hz

5Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.has passive noise reduction
Sennheiser IE 60
Sony XBA-H1
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

115dB/mW

105dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.has active noise-canceling (noise control)
Sennheiser IE 60
Sony XBA-H1
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.
6.impedance

16 Ohms

40 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.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
