Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX2, the Echo Buds 3rd Generation's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they are protected against drops falling when tilted at 15° in 4 fixed positions.
In comparison to the Echo Buds 3rd Generation, 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, JLab Go Air has a higher liquid rating than Echo Buds 3rd Generation
The Echo Buds 3rd Generation have a weight of 10g . We take in account a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are easier to transport.
The JLab Go Air, at 10g have the same weight as the Echo Buds 3rd Generation
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables linking any part of the device together, Echo Buds 3rd Generation are true wireless for this matter since they don't have cables. This is a major difference since wireless earbuds have wires connecting the 2 earbuds .
JLab Go Air also is true wireless since it has no wires linking the 2 earbuds together.
Echo Buds 3rd Generation have sweat resistance
JLab Go Air's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
Echo Buds 3rd Generation have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both JLab Go Air and Echo Buds 3rd Generation have stereo speakers
Echo Buds 3rd Generation sit well in place, this creates a sound covering that reduces your environment sounds and also prevents the device voice audio from leaking out .
Both JLab Go Air, and Echo Buds 3rd Generation have passive noise reduction which implies that both tone down ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
The Echo Buds 3rd Generation have a unit size of 12mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the loudness of the earbuds.
JLab Go Air driver unit is 8mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Echo Buds 3rd Generation by 4mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
Echo Buds 3rd Generation's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
The Echo Buds 3rd Generation's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device makes high audible 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 produce equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured 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, if used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help generate music at quite a high sound pressure level, using high magnetic flux.
The Echo Buds 3rd Generation'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 commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
JLab Go Air's battery life is less than that of Echo Buds 3rd Generation by 1 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 manufacturer, and Echo Buds 3rd Generation's case is said to have a charge of 14 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
JLab Go Air's charging case has a battery life of 15 hours, more than that of Echo Buds 3rd Generation by 1 hours
It takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the JLab Go Air's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
JLab Go Air's battery capacity is 43mAh, battery power, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
Echo Buds 3rd Generation have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights show the charging state of your device and charging case.
JLab Go Air too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators allow you tell the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or having a low battery.
Echo Buds 3rd Generation have USB TYPE-C, an industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power in a single cable.
The Echo Buds 3rd Generation have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data movement between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
JLab Go Air has a Bluetooth version of 5, older than that of Echo Buds 3rd Generation . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The Echo Buds 3rd Generation have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
JLab Go Air have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Echo Buds 3rd Generation
Echo Buds 3rd Generation have 4 microphones.
JLab Go Air microphones are 2, less than that of Echo Buds 3rd Generation by 2 . More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out noise.
The JLab Go Air microphone sensitivity is measured at -38dBV/Pa. The vastness of the analog or digital output signal from the microphone with its input stimulus is a calculation of its sensitivity. It's the 'loudness' of the voice that the microphone can pick up.
The Echo Buds 3rd Generation support fast charging. Commonly, technologies like MediaTek’s Pump Express, are used to reduce the time it takes to fully charge a device.
The Echo Buds 3rd Generation have a multipoint of 2 connections, this feature allows you connect to more than one Bluetooth device and switch between them. Say, you can seemlessly switch calls from one device to another without manually disconnect and reconnect.
