Headphones that are designed to allow air to pass through their ear cups from the rear of the speaker driver unit are known as open-back. This design provides a very natural and accurate sound, Sennheiser HD 560S have this kind of design which means that resonances and low-frequency that tend to build up caused by the rear enclosure are no longer a concern.
By sweat resistance we mean that the wireless earbuds are protected in the presence of low-pressure water jets at any angle, this is determined by the IP Rating of the earbuds. Based on the ingress protection rating of the Adidas RPT 02 Sol they do have sweat resistance
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement, but remember that every cable based on the conducting material used has a certain amount of parasitic resistance, inductance, and capacitance. How much depends on the length and construction. Sennheiser HD 560S comes with a 3meters cable.
Over-ear headphones have larger earpads that fit around your entire ear Sennheiser HD 560S have a comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This design is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors.

Adidas RPT 02 Sol have stereo speakers, what this means is that Adidas RPT 02 Sol's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Sennheiser HD 560S and Adidas RPT 02 Sol have stereo speakers
Passive Noise Cancellation uses well-designed ear cups to seal out unwanted noise. This is used for both in-ear earphones and over-ear headphones where the headphone itself will keep surrounding noise out. The Sennheiser HD 560S sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
Low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device reproduces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on the way through. Adidas RPT 02 Sol's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
Sennheiser HD 560S's lowest frequency is at 6Hz, this implies that Adidas RPT 02 Sol got a juicier bass than the Sennheiser HD 560S
High frequency response measures if and how well an audio device reproduces high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it. Adidas RPT 02 Sol's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
Sennheiser HD 560S's highest frequency is at 38000Hz, this implies that Sennheiser HD 560S got a clearer and crispier treble than the Adidas RPT 02 Sol
Sound pressure is the average variation in atmospheric pressure caused by the sound, the sound level .i.e how loud something is can be perceived differently by different people so we need to have the means to get an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The sound pressure level, SPL, is the pressure level of a sound, measured in decibels, dB, Adidas RPT 02 Sol's measurement is 105dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Sennheiser HD 560S's sound pressure level measurement is 110dB/mW.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. Adidas RPT 02 Sol driver unit is 45mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Sennheiser HD 560S driver unit is 38mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Adidas RPT 02 Sol by 7mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty reproducing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better sound.
Defined as the device's resistance to the electromagnetic current, when electricity flows through a wire, it experiences electrical resistance that counters the flow of current. The resistance of a wire is measured in ohms. Adidas RPT 02 Sol's impedance is 32Ohms, the lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
Sennheiser HD 560S's impedance is 120Ohms. The impedance of earbuds is the electrical resistance of the driver unit present on the inside.
If your headphones play wirelessly, cancel ambient noise, or enhance your listening experience with active features, their battery life will reduce over time. The device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often. Adidas RPT 02 Sol's battery life is 80 hours
It takes 2 hours to fully charge the Adidas RPT 02 Sol's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the headphones for the first time or when they have been unused for extended periods.

Adidas RPT 02 Sol support AAC, a codec that is 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 a similar bit rate.
Bluetooth is a short-range wireless technology standard that is used for exchanging data between fixed and mobile devices over short distances. The Adidas RPT 02 Sol can connect at a 10meters distance via Bluetooth or infrared to another device.
Being an industry standard audio plug, a standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards. This means that it is commonly used in stereo headphones to your phone or connecting your phone to an external amplifier, sound bars, your car radio, etc. Sennheiser HD 560S has this connector giving it a wider range of connectivity with most of the sound devices out there. All plugs have at least a tip and sleeve with the number of rings that stand as a differentiating factor.
Adidas RPT 02 Sol have only 1 microphones, more microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
Adidas RPT 02 Sol use a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
Adidas RPT 02 Sol have a mute function, they have an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device. The mute function means that you unilaterally turn off the microphone, but you can still hear the other party's voice.
There is a control panel on the Adidas RPT 02 Sol body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
