Hi John. IEM (In ear monitor): It go into your ear canals, Normally it have most isolation of headphones because it produce a tight seal in your ear canals. There are two known kinds of drivers. Balanced Armature or Dynamic.
The orthodynamic headphones are normally full sized headphones (over the ear) and the driver consist in a "sandwich", with perforated magnets like breads and a thin polymer film with voice coils distributed uniformly like cheese.
The AKG k545 Is not an IEM nor Orthodynamic headphones. Is a Dynamic Headphone (It have a "normal" driver, like a mini-speaker)
