Ingress protection ratings refer to the level of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. 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 resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX3, the BLX Earbuds Gen 2'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 up to 60° from vertical position for ten minutes.
In comparison to the BLX Earbuds Gen 2, JLab Go Air have a rating of IP44 meaning that they are protected against objects greater than 1.0mm such as wire and that of liquids is that, BLX Earbuds Gen 2 has a lower liquid rating than JLab Go Air
The BLX Earbuds Gen 2 have a weight of 43.94g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to move with.

BLX Earbuds Gen 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device produces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
BLX Earbuds Gen 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, JLab Go Air's measurement is 103dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The JLab Go Air have neodymium magnets, when used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, using high magnetic flux.
The BLX Earbuds Gen 2's battery life is 6 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.
