1 Reason For for Choosing the Ifrogz Earpollution Toxix

Cheaper by $6

The ifrogz Earpollution Toxix costs $6.47 less than the Philips SHL500000, costs $60.58 less than the Shure SE215 and costs $5.57 less than the Sony MDRZX100.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Ifrogz Earpollution Toxix

48% Heavier

The ifrogz Earpollution Toxix is a 75 pair of headphones. That's 67.7g heavier than the Panasonic RPHS200K (7.3g), 44g lighter than the Philips SHL500000 (119g), 45g heavier than the Shure SE215 (30g) and 45g lighter than the Sony MDRZX100 (120g). More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the headphones are, measured in grams (g).

Lighter headphones will be more comfortable to wear for long periods.

7% Smaller Driver Size

The ifrogz Earpollution Toxix has a driver size of 30, and so does the Sony MDRZX100. That's 17.6mm bigger than the Panasonic RPHS200K (12.4mm), 2mm smaller than the Philips SHL500000 (32mm) and 20mm bigger than the Shure SE215 (10mm). More ...

The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

A bigger driver unit means that the headphones will be capable of generating more sound, making them louder. It doesn't necessarily mean the sound will be better quality, just louder. However it's a good starting point if you're looking for a powerful pair of headphones.

Smaller Headphone Sensitivity

The ifrogz Earpollution Toxix is a 105 headphone sensitivity pair of headphones. That's 4dB bigger than the Panasonic RPHS200K (101dB), 1dB smaller than the Philips SHL500000 (106dB), 2dB smaller than the Shure SE215 (107dB) and 5dB bigger than the Sony MDRZX100 (100dB). More ...

'Headphone Sensitivity' denotes how effectively the headphones convert digital signals into audio noise - the higher the sensitivity, the louder the headphone output will be.

26% Shorter Cable Length

The ifrogz Earpollution Toxix is a 1.2 cable length pair of headphones, and so do the Panasonic RPHS200K, the Philips SHL500000 and the Sony MDRZX100. That's 0.42m shorter than the Shure SE215 (1.62m). More ...

The length of the cable between the headphones and the jack.

Worse Kagoo Score

The ifrogz Earpollution Toxix has only received a Kagoo Score of 73, however the Panasonic RPHS200K scored 79, the Philips SHL500000 scored 80, the Shure SE215 scored 84 and the Sony MDRZX100 scored 74.

Less Retailers

The ifrogz Earpollution Toxix is only stocked by 2 stores, whereas the Shure SE215 is stocked by 8 stores. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this pair of headphones remaining in stock.
Older by Over Five Years

The ifrogz Earpollution Toxix is five years older than the Philips SHL500000 and 11 months older than the Sony MDRZX100. The ifrogz Earpollution Toxix is the same age as the Shure SE215.

Worse Brand

Ifrogz headphones have an average rating of only 69.2%, whereas Panasonic has an average rating of 73.8%, Philips has an average rating of 85.5%, Shure has an average rating of 72.8% and Sony has an average rating of 95%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Earpollution Toxix in the US is $9.42 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Shure SE215

Marginally Bigger Headphone Sensitivity

The Shure SE215 has a headphone sensitivity of 107, but the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix is only a 105dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (2dB smaller), the Panasonic RPHS200K is only a 101dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (6dB smaller), the Philips SHL500000 is only a 106dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (1dB smaller) and the Sony MDRZX100 is only a 100dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (7dB smaller). More ...

'Headphone Sensitivity' denotes how effectively the headphones convert digital signals into audio noise - the higher the sensitivity, the louder the headphone output will be.

Longer Cable Length

The Shure SE215 has a cable length of 1.62, but the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix, the Panasonic RPHS200K, the Philips SHL500000 and the Sony MDRZX100 are all only 1.2m cable length headphones (0.42m shorter). More ...

The length of the cable between the headphones and the jack.

Detachable Cable

The Shure SE215 has a detachable cable, but the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix, the Panasonic RPHS200K, the Philips SHL500000 and the Sony MDRZX100 do not have this feature. More ...

'Detachable Cable' denotes whether the headphones have a cable that can be easily detached, or whether it's hard-wired to the unit.

A detachable cable is helpful, because it allows for easy replacement if something goes wrong with the cable. It also means that if you drop the headphones or get them caught on something, then the wire simply disconnects rather than yanking the headphones and possibly damaging them.

Better Kagoo Score

The Shure SE215 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, whereas the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix scored only 73, the Panasonic RPHS200K scored 79, the Philips SHL500000 scored 80 and the Sony MDRZX100 scored only 74.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this pair of headphones and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Three More Awards

The Shure SE215 has received 3 awards, but the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix has received no awards, the Panasonic RPHS200K has received no awards, the Philips SHL500000 has received 1 award and the Sony MDRZX100 has received no awards.

User Reviews Are Marginally Better

Based on 676 reviews, the average user review score of the Shure SE215 is 83%, whereas the average rating of the Philips SHL500000 is 80% (based on 10 reviews).

Overall Reviews Are Better

Based on 723 reviews, the average overall review score of the Shure SE215 is 84%, whereas the average rating of the Panasonic RPHS200K is 72% (based on 1 review), the average rating of the Philips SHL500000 is 77% (based on 15 reviews) and the average rating of the Sony MDRZX100 is 56% (based on 2 reviews).

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Shure SE215

22.7g Heavier

The Shure SE215 has a weight of 30, but the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix is a 75g pair of headphones (45g heavier), the Panasonic RPHS200K is a 7.3g pair of headphones (22.7g lighter), the Philips SHL500000 is a 119g pair of headphones (89g heavier) and the Sony MDRZX100 is a 120g pair of headphones (90g heavier). More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the headphones are, measured in grams (g).

Lighter headphones will be more comfortable to wear for long periods.

22mm Smaller Driver Size

The Shure SE215 is a 10 driver pair of headphones, whereas the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix and the Sony MDRZX100 are both 30mm driver headphones (20mm bigger), the Panasonic RPHS200K is a 12.4mm driver pair of headphones (2.4mm bigger) and the Philips SHL500000 is a 32mm driver pair of headphones (22mm bigger). More ...

The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

A bigger driver unit means that the headphones will be capable of generating more sound, making them louder. It doesn't necessarily mean the sound will be better quality, just louder. However it's a good starting point if you're looking for a powerful pair of headphones.

$61 More Expensive

The Shure SE215 is more expensive than the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix by $61, more expensive than the Panasonic RPHS200K by $60, more expensive than the Philips SHL500000 by $54 and more expensive than the Sony MDRZX100 by $55.

Over Five Years Older

The Shure SE215 is older than the Philips SHL500000 by five years and older than the Sony MDRZX100 by 11 months. The Shure SE215 is the same age as the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix.

Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the Shure SE215 is 82%, whereas the average expert rating of the Panasonic RPHS200K is 90% (based on 1 review).

Worse Brand

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Philips SHL500000

A Lot Bigger Driver Size

The Philips SHL500000 is a 32 driver pair of headphones, whereas the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix and the Sony MDRZX100 are both only 30mm driver headphones (2mm smaller), the Panasonic RPHS200K is only a 12.4mm driver pair of headphones (19.6mm smaller) and the Shure SE215 is only a 10mm driver pair of headphones (22mm smaller). More ...

The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

A bigger driver unit means that the headphones will be capable of generating more sound, making them louder. It doesn't necessarily mean the sound will be better quality, just louder. However it's a good starting point if you're looking for a powerful pair of headphones.

Noise Reduction

The Philips SHL500000 supports noise reduction, however the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix, the Panasonic RPHS200K, the Shure SE215 and the Sony MDRZX100 do not support this feature. More ...

'Noise Reduction' denotes how good the headphones are at passively cutting down external noise leaking into your music from outside. Please note this is different from noise cancelling - that is an active process, and far more effective. This uses foam and tight-fitting seals to block out unwanted noise.

The better the noise reduction, the less annoying background noise will affect your music while you're enjoying it.

Noise Canceling

The Philips SHL500000 is a noise canceling pair of headphones, but the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix, the Panasonic RPHS200K, the Shure SE215 and the Sony MDRZX100 are not. More ...

'Noise Cancelling' denotes whether the headphones actively filter out unwanted noise when in use.

Noise-cancelling headphones mean that far less background noise filters through to your ears. This makes music easier to hear, and can lead to improved concentration and productivity, as well as being nicer to use in noisy environments (such as airplanes).

Foldable

The Philips SHL500000 is a foldable pair of headphones (as is the Sony MDRZX100), but the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix, the Panasonic RPHS200K and the Shure SE215 are not. More ...

'Foldable' denotes whether the headphones can be folded down into a small, portable form.

Foldable headphones are easier to carry or store when not in use, and are less likely to break through mishandling.

Four Years Newer

The Philips SHL500000 is five years newer than the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix, six years newer than the Panasonic RPHS200K, five years newer than the Shure SE215 and four years newer than the Sony MDRZX100

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Philips SHL500000

A Lot Heavier

The Philips SHL500000 has a weight of 119, but the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix is a 75g pair of headphones (44g lighter), the Panasonic RPHS200K is a 7.3g pair of headphones (111.7g lighter), the Shure SE215 is a 30g pair of headphones (89g lighter) and the Sony MDRZX100 is a 120g pair of headphones (1g heavier). More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the headphones are, measured in grams (g).

Lighter headphones will be more comfortable to wear for long periods.

1dB Smaller Headphone Sensitivity

The Philips SHL500000 has a headphone sensitivity of 106, but the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix is a 105dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (1dB smaller), the Panasonic RPHS200K is a 101dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (5dB smaller), the Shure SE215 is a 107dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (1dB bigger) and the Sony MDRZX100 is a 100dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones (6dB smaller). More ...

'Headphone Sensitivity' denotes how effectively the headphones convert digital signals into audio noise - the higher the sensitivity, the louder the headphone output will be.

A Lot Shorter Cable Length

The Philips SHL500000 has a cable length of 1.2 (as do the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix, the Panasonic RPHS200K and the Sony MDRZX100), but the Shure SE215 is a 1.62m cable length pair of headphones (0.42m longer). More ...

The length of the cable between the headphones and the jack.

Does Not Have a Detachable Cable

The Philips SHL500000 does not have a detachable cable, whereas the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix, the Panasonic RPHS200K, the Shure SE215 and the Sony MDRZX100 do. More ...

'Detachable Cable' denotes whether the headphones have a cable that can be easily detached, or whether it's hard-wired to the unit.

A detachable cable is helpful, because it allows for easy replacement if something goes wrong with the cable. It also means that if you drop the headphones or get them caught on something, then the wire simply disconnects rather than yanking the headphones and possibly damaging them.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Philips SHL500000 has received a Kagoo Score of 80, whereas the Shure SE215 scored 84.

$6 More Expensive

The Philips SHL500000 is more expensive than the ifrogz Earpollution Toxix by $6 and more expensive than the Panasonic RPHS200K by $6.

Fewer Sellers

Only 2 retailers sells the Philips SHL500000, but 8 sellers sell the Shure SE215. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this pair of headphones, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
Fewer Awards

Whilst the Philips SHL500000 has received 1 award, the Shure SE215 has received 3 awards.

A Lot Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the Philips SHL500000 is only 74%, whereas the average expert rating of the Panasonic RPHS200K is 90% (based on 1 review) and the Shure SE215 is 82% (based on 47 reviews).

The average user rating of the Philips SHL500000 is 80%, whereas the average user rating of the Shure SE215 is 83% (based on 676 reviews).

Worse Brand

Marginally Smaller Headphone Sensitivity
