Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection given by a casing, against solids and water. 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 (sweat).
Having a value of IP57, the Jabra Elite Active 75t's rating for solids indicates that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety, and of liquids that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.
In comparison to the Jabra Elite Active 75t, Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, Audio Technica ATH TWX9 has a lower liquid rating than Jabra Elite Active 75t
The Jabra Elite Active 75t have a weight of 10.1g . We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9, at 10.8g weigh more than the Jabra Elite Active 75t by of 0.7g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables linking any part of the device together, Jabra Elite Active 75t are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is a major distinction since wireless earbuds have wires connecting the two earbuds together.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 also is true wireless since it has no wires linking the pair of earbuds together.

Both Audio Technica ATH TWX9 and Jabra Elite Active 75t have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
Jabra Elite Active 75t have ANC enabling 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 noise.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 too have ANC which makes both earbuds ideal for plane rides and morning travels. The Jabra Elite Active 75t and Audio Technica ATH TWX9 operate with different noise cancellation modes, pick the setting that you prefer for commute or that enhances your chill time.

Both Audio Technica ATH TWX9, and Jabra Elite Active 75t have passive noise reduction which means that both limit ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
Jabra Elite Active 75t driver unit is 6mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the loudness of the device.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Jabra Elite Active 75t by 0.2mm , 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 indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
The Jabra Elite Active 75t's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
The Jabra Elite Active 75t's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH TWX9 can generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Jabra Elite Active 75t
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure 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 Jabra Elite Active 75t's battery life is 7.5 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's battery life is less than that of Jabra Elite Active 75t by 1.5 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and the Jabra Elite Active 75t's case has a full charge of 28 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
