The LG Tone Free Fit TF8 also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
The LG Tone Free Fit TF8 too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes either of the devices ideal for flights and rush hour travels. Each operate with different noise cancellation settings, pick the mode that you prefer for travel or that suites your chill time.
The Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW sit well in place, this creates an acoustic covering that tones down background sounds and also prevents the earbuds sound from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both limit ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have a unit size of 9mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the sound produced by the earbuds.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8 driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW by 3mm , 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW make sound with a juicier bass than the LG Tone Free Fit TF8
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's measurement is 110dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's battery life is 20 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 longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
