IP ratings is the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Sennheiser CX 500BT'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 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Sennheiser CX 500BT, Energy Sistem Sport 5 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
The Sennheiser CX 500BT have a weight of 12g . We take in account a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
The Energy Sistem Sport 5, at 18g weigh more than the Sennheiser CX 500BT with a difference of 6g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Sennheiser CX 500BT are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is an important difference since wireless earbuds have wires connecting the two earbuds together.
Energy Sistem Sport 5 also is true wireless because it doesn't have wires connecting the two earbuds .
Energy Sistem Sport 5 have wingtips, these are commonly used for earbuds for workouts and are usually an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a more secure fit.
Sennheiser CX 500BT have sweat resistance
Energy Sistem Sport 5's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
The earbud foam is made to be ultracompact and lightweight, with little interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The Energy Sistem Sport 5 have an earbud foam for some people it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
Sennheiser CX 500BT have stereo speakers, what this means is that Sennheiser CX 500BT's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Energy Sistem Sport 5 also have stereo speakers
ANC uses advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) and adding -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
Sennheiser CX 500BT have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
Sennheiser CX 500BT sit well in place, this creates a sound seal that reduces background noise well as preventing the device voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that they tone down ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
Energy Sistem Sport 5 have a unit size of 14mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass. The driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, its size dictates the loudness of the earbuds.
Sennheiser CX 500BT's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Sennheiser CX 500BT can produce a juicier bass than the Energy Sistem Sport 5
The Sennheiser CX 500BT's highest frequency is at 21000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that Sennheiser CX 500BT can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Energy Sistem Sport 5
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.
Energy Sistem Sport 5 have neodymium magnets, if used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help generate music at quite a high sound pressure level, with the use of high magnetic flux.
The Sennheiser CX 500BT's battery life is 8 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's battery life is less than that of Sennheiser CX 500BT by 3 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and the Sennheiser CX 500BT's case has a full charge of 16 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's charging case has a battery life of 20 hours, more than that of Sennheiser CX 500BT by 4 hours
