IP ratings is the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX5, the 1More Aero's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 5 means 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.
Compared to the 1More Aero, Sony LinkBuds S have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, 1More Aero has a higher liquid rating than Sony LinkBuds S
Sony LinkBuds S have a weight of 9.6g . We consider a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables linking any part of the device together, 1More Aero are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have wires connecting the 2 earbuds .
Sony LinkBuds S also is true wireless because it doesn't have wires linking the pair of earbuds together.
1More Aero have sweat resistance
Sony LinkBuds S's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
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.
Both Sony LinkBuds S and 1More Aero have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
1More Aero have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.
Sony LinkBuds S too have ANC making either of the devices ideal for flights and morning commutes. The 1More Aero and Sony LinkBuds S operate with different noise cancellation types, pick the mode that suits your commute or that suites your relaxation time.
The 1More Aero sit tightly in place, this creates an acoustic covering that reduces background sounds while preventing the device music from leaking out at the same.
Both Sony LinkBuds S, and 1More Aero have passive noise reduction which means that both tone down ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
The 1More Aero have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, its size determines the sound produced by the device.
Sony LinkBuds S driver unit is 5mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of 1More Aero by 5mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yes, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
The 1More Aero's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Sony LinkBuds S's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices make sound with equal bass
1More Aero's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Sony LinkBuds S's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this implies that Sony LinkBuds S can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the 1More Aero
The Sony LinkBuds S have neodymium magnets, when used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high SPL, using high magnetic flux.
1More Aero's battery life is 7 hours, a device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Sony LinkBuds S's battery life is less than that of 1More Aero by 1 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and the 1More Aero's case is said to have a full charge of 21 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
Sony LinkBuds S's charging case has a battery life of 14 hours, less than that of 1More Aero by 7 hours
It takes 2 hours to fully charge the Sony LinkBuds S's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
1More Aero have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights show the charging state of your device and charging case.
Sony LinkBuds S too have a battery level indicator, these enable you tell the charging state of your device, whether fully charged, or having a low battery.
1More Aero support USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
Sony LinkBuds S too use USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug comes along with most current electronics.
1More Aero have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Sony LinkBuds S has a Bluetooth version of 5.2, equal to that of the 1More Aero . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
1More Aero have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Sony LinkBuds S have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the 1More Aero
1More Aero support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the 1More Aero will work fine 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 Sony LinkBuds S support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
Sony LinkBuds S support LDAC, a codec developed by Sony which allows streaming high-resolution audio over Bluetooth connections at up to 990 kbps at 32 bit/96 kHz. It is capable of a very high bitrate of 990kbps, which provides high-resolution audio.
1More Aero have 6 microphones.
While the Sony LinkBuds S microphones are 6, equal to that of the 1More Aero . More microphones result in better sound quality and help the device to filter out noise.
The 1More Aero have a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are made to filter out background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
