Price comparison

Design

1.has stereo speakers
Sennheiser IE 8i
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
Sennheiser IE 8i
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.sweat resistant
Sennheiser IE 8i
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
4.weight

18g

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.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Sennheiser IE 8i
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
6.travel bag is included
Sennheiser IE 8i
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.highest frequency

20000Hz

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

10Hz

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 8i
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

125dB/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 8i
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

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.Can be used wirelessly
Sennheiser IE 8i
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
Sennheiser IE 8i
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.

Features

1.can be used as a headset
Sennheiser IE 8i
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
2.number of microphones

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
3.has an in-line control panel
Sennheiser IE 8i
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
4.warranty period

2

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.

Miscellaneous

1.mic sensitivity

-40dBV/Pa

It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the microphone can pick up.
2.lowest frequency mic

80Hz

The lowest frequencies that the mic can pick up well. Better for recording bass. If a microphone is going to be used for speech, a voice microphone, it must have great gain for bass, since human voice is in the low frequencies.
3.highest frequency mic

15000Hz

The highest frequencies that the mic can pick up well. Better for recording treble.
