Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
3.weight

16g

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.
4.travel bag is included
Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear
Sony XBA-3iP
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an in-ear form
Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear
Sony XBA-3iP
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.has a tangle free cable
Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear
Sony XBA-3iP
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

15Hz

4Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

22000Hz

28000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction
Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear
Sony XBA-3iP
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

118dB/mW

108dB/mW

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

18 Ohms

12 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 Momentum In-Ear
Sony XBA-3iP
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
