Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX5, the 1More Aero's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they can withstand medium pressure jet that's 6.3mm diameter, similar to garden hose from any angle for 3 minutes at a distance of 2.5 to 3 metres.
In comparison to the 1More Aero, Skullcandy Indy Fuel have a rating of IP55 meaning that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
The Skullcandy Indy Fuel have a weight of 57g . We prefer a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
True wireless devices have no cables connecting any part of the device together, 1More Aero are true wireless for this case since they don't have wires. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have wires linking the pair of earbuds .
Skullcandy Indy Fuel also is true wireless because it has no cables linking the pair of earbuds .
Skullcandy Indy Fuel have wingtips, these are commonly used for earbuds for workouts and come as an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a better fit.
1More Aero are resistant to sweat
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use during long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
Skullcandy Indy Fuel are both dustproof and water-resistant.
1More Aero have stereo speakers, what this means is that 1More Aero's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Skullcandy Indy Fuel also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
1More Aero have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
The 1More Aero stay tightly in place, this creates an acoustic covering that tones down your environment noise well as preventing the device music from leaking out at the same.
Both Skullcandy Indy Fuel, and 1More Aero have passive noise reduction which means that they limit ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The 1More Aero driver unit is 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the loudness of the device.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of 1More Aero by 4mm , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The 1More Aero's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The 1More Aero's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio component generates high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Skullcandy Indy Fuel's measurement is 105dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
1More Aero's battery life is 7 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's battery life is less than that of 1More Aero by 4 hours . Every 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 have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and 1More Aero's case has a charge of 21 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's charging case has a battery life of 27 hours, more than that of 1More Aero by 6 hours

The 1More Aero have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
1More Aero support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the 1More Aero will work well with your iPad. If you intend on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The 1More Aero have 6 microphones.
1More Aero have a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are designed to reduce background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
1More Aero support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to channel ambient noises so that they can still be heard even while wearing them
