Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by a casing, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value refers to 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 value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 2 means that they are protected against drops falling when tilted at 15° in 4 fixed positions.
In comparison to the Echo Buds 3rd Generation, 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, Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro has a higher liquid rating than Echo Buds 3rd Generation

The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.

Both Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro, and Echo Buds 3rd Generation have passive noise reduction which means that both tone down ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
Echo Buds 3rd Generation driver unit is 12mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, its size determines the loudness of the device.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro driver unit is 10mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Echo Buds 3rd Generation by 2mm , 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Echo Buds 3rd Generation's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component produces 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 means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Echo Buds 3rd Generation's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates high audible frequencies and if it makes any 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 Echo Buds 3rd Generation's battery life is 6 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge.
