Ingress protection ratings refer to the level of protection given by a casing, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
In comparison to the Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW, Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have a weight of 16g . We prefer a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro, at 10g are lighter than the Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW by -6g

Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro also is true wireless since it has no wires connecting the pair of earbuds .
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have sweat resistance
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use during long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
An earbud foam is made to be ultracompact and lightweight, with almost no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have an earbud foam to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have stereo speakers, what this means is that Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro also have stereo speakers
ANC uses advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro too have Active Noise Cancellation making either of the earbuds ideal for plane rides and morning travels. Each operate with different noise cancellation types, pick the noise cancellation type that you prefer for commute or that enhances your chill time.

Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that both limit ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW driver unit is 9mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the loudness of the device.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW by 1mm , 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 it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
The Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW produce a juicier bass than the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component makes high audible frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices can generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level 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 for a single charge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro's battery life is less than that of Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW by 16 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the vendor, and the Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's case is said to have a full charge of 30 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro's charging case has a battery life of 16 hours, less than that of Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW by 14 hours
It takes 3 hours to fully charge the Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for long periods.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro takes 1 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW by 2 hours
