Ingress protection ratings is the level of protection given by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of 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 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, Sony WF C500 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Sony WF C500 has a lower liquid rating than 1More Aero
Sony WF C500 have a weight of 10.8g . We prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
True wireless devices have no cables linking any part of the device together, 1More Aero are true wireless for this case since they don't have cables. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the 2 earbuds together.
Sony WF C500 also is true wireless because it has no cables linking the pair of earbuds together.
1More Aero are resistant to sweat
Sony WF C500's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
1More Aero have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Sony WF C500 and 1More Aero have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
1More Aero have ANC 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 overcome background sounds.
1More Aero stay well in place, creating an acoustic covering that reduces background sounds and also prevents the earbuds sound from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that both 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, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the loudness of the device.
Sony WF C500 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of 1More Aero by 4.2mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
1More Aero's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Sony WF C500's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
1More Aero's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio component produces high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Sony WF C500's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
Sony WF C500 have neodymium magnets, if used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help generate music at quite a high sound pressure level, with the use of high magnetic flux.
The 1More Aero's battery life is 7 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is 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 WF C500's battery life is more than that of 1More Aero by 3 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and 1More Aero's case is said to have a full charge of 21 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
Sony WF C500's charging case has a battery life of 10 hours, less than that of 1More Aero by 11 hours
It requires 2.5 hours to fully charge the Sony WF C500's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds when they have been in storage for extended periods.
The 1More Aero have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the earbuds has a low battery. The battery indicator lights indicate the charging state of your device and charging case.
Sony WF C500 too have a battery level indicator, these enable you to tell the charging state of your earbuds, if charged fully, or having a low battery.
1More Aero have USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
Sony WF C500 too have USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug is part and parcel of most current laptops, phones, and tablets.
The 1More Aero have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data transfers between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Sony WF C500 has a Bluetooth version of 5, older than that of 1More Aero . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The 1More Aero have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
Sony WF C500 have a maximum range of 9meters, less than that of 1More Aero by 1meters
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 the same bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the 1More Aero will work well with your MacBook. 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 WF C500 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.
1More Aero have 6 microphones.
The Sony WF C500 microphones are 2, less than that of 1More Aero by 4 . More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the earbuds to filter out noise.
1More Aero use a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are intended to filter out background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
The 1More Aero support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient noises to still be heard even while wearing them
When misplaced in a room, or can't be found in your bag, the 1More Aero support the find earbuds feature.
The 1More Aero support fast charging. Most often, technologies like MediaTek’s Pump Express, are used to lower the amount of time it takes to fully charge a device.

The 1More Aero have a mute function, they have the option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
The Sony WF C500 too have this function. The mute function means that you unilaterally turn off the device's microphone, but still hear the other party talk.
The Sony WF C500, so you can access the volume control, pause, play, mute, etc whichever functions are supported on the earbuds.
Sony WF C500 have a warranty period of 1 Years, the period of time that warrant free repair and adjustment services in case of a malfunction occurring under normal use that has followed instruction manuals.
