Ingress protection ratings refer to the level of protection given by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3'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 Momentum True Wireless 3, Mpow Flame S have a rating of IPX7 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 has a lower liquid rating than Mpow Flame S
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 have a weight of 140g . We take in account a lower weight better because lighter devices are easier to transport.

The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's highest frequency is at 21000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's measurement is 107dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's battery life is 7 hours, 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.
Mpow Flame S's battery life is more than that of Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 by 5 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
