I'm a bit skeptical that the rating actually indicates the sound pressure level at the ear drum. With speakers, the sensitivity rating is often accompanied by a measurement distance (eg, 92db 1W@1 meter). With IEMs, I've rarely seen this. Is it right at the ear tube? 5mm away? I'd suspect that relative to what is actually perceived, the sensitivity specs are probably generally inflated.
