IP ratings is the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX5, the 1More Aero's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 5 means that they can withstand medium pressure jet that's 6.3mm diameter, similar to garden hose from any angle for 3 minutes at a distance of 2.5 to 3 metres.
In comparison to the 1More Aero, Sennheiser CX 500BT have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, 1More Aero has a higher liquid rating than Sennheiser CX 500BT
Sennheiser CX 500BT have a weight of 12g . We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.

Both Sennheiser CX 500BT and 1More Aero have stereo speakers
ANC utilises advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then adding -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The 1More Aero have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.

The 1More Aero have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass. The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, the unit size determines the sound made by the device.
1More Aero's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Sennheiser CX 500BT's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, this means that Sennheiser CX 500BT produce a juicier bass than the 1More Aero
1More Aero's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio device produces high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Sennheiser CX 500BT's highest frequency is at 21,000Hz, this means that Sennheiser CX 500BT produce a clearer and crispier treble than the 1More Aero
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, in decibels, dB, Sennheiser CX 500BT's measurement is 94dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
1More Aero's battery life is 7 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Sennheiser CX 500BT's battery life is more than that of 1More Aero by 1 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the manufacturer, and 1More Aero's case has a full charge of 21 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before having to recharge the case itself.
Sennheiser CX 500BT's charging case has a battery life of 16 hours, less than that of 1More Aero by 5 hours
1More Aero have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the earbuds has a low battery. The battery indicator lights show the charging status of your earbuds and case.

1More Aero support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the 1More Aero will work well with your iPad. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The Sennheiser CX 500BT support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
