IP ratings is the level of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Audio Technica ATH TWX9's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 4 means 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 TWX9, BLX Earbuds 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 TWX9 have a weight of 10.8g . We take in account a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to move with.
The BLX Earbuds, at 44.5g weigh more than the Audio Technica ATH TWX9 with a difference of 33.7g
True wireless devices have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Audio Technica ATH TWX9 are true wireless for this case since they don't have cables. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the pair of earbuds together.
BLX Earbuds also is true wireless because it has no cables connecting the two earbuds together.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have sweat resistance
BLX Earbuds's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 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.
The BLX Earbuds also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have Active Noise Cancellation 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.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9 sit well in place, this creates an acoustic seal that reduces background sounds and also prevents the earbuds music from leaking out at the same.
Both BLX Earbuds, and Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have passive noise reduction which implies that both tone down ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have a unit size of 5.8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass. A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the loudness of the device.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
BLX Earbuds's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component produces high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
BLX Earbuds's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH TWX9 produce a clearer and crispier treble than the BLX Earbuds
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Audio Technica ATH TWX9's measurement is 102dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9's battery life is 6 hours, a device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chanrgings.
BLX Earbuds's battery life is less than that of Audio Technica ATH TWX9 by 1.5 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing 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 Audio Technica ATH TWX9's case has a charge of 18.5 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
BLX Earbuds's charging case has a battery life of 13.5 hours, less than that of Audio Technica ATH TWX9 by 5 hours
It requires 2.5 hours to fully charge the Audio Technica ATH TWX9's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
BLX Earbuds takes 1 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of Audio Technica ATH TWX9 by 1.5 hours
BLX Earbuds's battery capacity is 40mAh, battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the earbuds has a low battery. Its lights indicate the charging status of your earbuds and charging case.
BLX Earbuds too have a battery level indicator, these allow you to tell the charging state of your device, if charged fully, or the battery is running low.

BLX Earbuds have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Audio Technica ATH TWX9
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 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 Audio Technica ATH TWX9 will work fine 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 Audio Technica ATH TWX9 support APTX Adaptive, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It has a variable bit rate (between 279kbps and 420kbps).
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have 4 microphones.
While the BLX Earbuds microphones are 2, less than that of Audio Technica ATH TWX9 by 2 . More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background sounds.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are intended to reduce background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9 microphone sensitivity is measured at -38dBV/Pa. The magnitude of the analog or digital output signal from the microphone with its input stimulus is a measure of its sensitivity. It's the 'loudness' of the voice that the microphone can recognize.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9's highest mic frequency is 16000Hz, high frequencies are better for picking up treble. The highest mic frequency of a microphone is defined as its upper limiting frequency.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9's lowest mic frequency is 100Hz, low frequencies are best for recording bass. The lowest mic frequency of a microphone is defined as its lower limiting frequency.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9 support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient noises so that they can still be heard even when wearing them
