Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection given by a casing, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating 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 number 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 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
The Sony WF C500 have a weight of 10.8g . We prefer a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
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 wires. This is a major difference since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the pair of earbuds .
Sony WF C500 also is true wireless since it doesn't have cables connecting the pair of earbuds together.
1More Aero are resistant to sweat
Sony WF C500's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
1More Aero have stereo speakers, what this means is that 1More Aero's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Sony WF C500 also have stereo speakers
ANC uses advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
The 1More Aero have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.
The 1More Aero stay tightly in place, creating a sound covering that tones down background sounds well as preventing the device sound from leaking out at the same.
Both Sony WF C500, and 1More Aero have passive noise reduction this means that they reduce ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
1More Aero have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, its size determines 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 , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
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 on its way through.
Sony WF C500's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The 1More Aero's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Sony WF C500's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
The Sony WF C500 have neodymium magnets, if used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, with the use of high magnetic flux.
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 longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Sony WF C500's battery life is more than that of 1More Aero by 3 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely 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 vendor, and 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 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. Its lights display the charging status of your earbuds and case.
Sony WF C500 too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators allow you tell the charging state of your earbuds, if charged fully, 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 WF C500 too support USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug comes along with most current laptops, phones, and tablets.
1More Aero have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, 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 to connect 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. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide 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 iPhone. 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.
Sony WF C500 microphones are 2, less than that of 1More Aero by 4 . More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background sounds.
1More Aero have a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are designed to reduce background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
