Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to 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 the second value of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW, Technics EAH AZ60M2 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
The Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have a weight of 16g . We prefer a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to move with.
The Technics EAH AZ60M2, at 14g weigh less than the Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW by -2g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is a major distinction since wireless earbuds have cables linking the two earbuds .
Technics EAH AZ60M2 also is true wireless because it has no wires connecting the 2 earbuds .

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.
Technics EAH AZ60M2 also have an earbud foam, meaning that by design they rest on the outer concha ridge of your ear, located in the center of your outer ear.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Technics EAH AZ60M2 and Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
Technics EAH AZ60M2 too have ANC making either of the earbuds ideal for flights and morning commutes. Each operate with different noise cancellation settings, pick the setting that suits your travel or that suites your relaxation time.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW sit well in place, this creates a sound covering that tones down background sounds well as preventing the earbuds music from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that they reduce ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
The Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW driver unit is 9mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the loudness of the device.
Technics EAH AZ60M2 driver unit is 8mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller 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 find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Technics EAH AZ60M2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW can make sound with a juicier bass than the Technics EAH AZ60M2
The Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
