The earphone has a plug on it.
That fits into the jack in the CD player.
Neither the plug nor the jack are sensitive to anything,
they are just connectors.

CD players generally use 16 ohm or 32 ohm headphones.
Some may use 8 ohm headphones, but those are less common.

The way we measure earphone sensitivity is in ohms. The more
ohms, the more sensitive the earphone is. Piezoelectric earphones
range from about 100,000 ohms to 10,000,000 ohms, and are more
sensitive than a 32 ohm earphone by quite a bit.
