Ingress protection 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 means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring 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 the second number of 7 means 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 prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to carry.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9, at 10.8g are heavier than the Jabra Elite Active 75t by of 0.7g
True wireless devices have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Jabra Elite Active 75t are true wireless for this matter since they don't have wires. This is an important difference since wireless earbuds have cables linking the pair of earbuds .
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 also is true wireless because it has no wires connecting the 2 earbuds together.
Jabra Elite Active 75t are resistant to sweat
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
Jabra Elite Active 75t 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.
Both Audio Technica ATH TWX9 and Jabra Elite Active 75t have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
Jabra Elite Active 75t have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9 too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes either of the devices ideal for flights and rush hour travels. Each work with different noise cancellation modes, pick the noise cancellation type that suits your commute or that enhances your chill time.
Jabra Elite Active 75t stay well in place, creating an acoustic covering that tones down background sounds while preventing the device sound from leaking out .

Jabra Elite Active 75t have a unit size of 6mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines the loudness of the earbuds.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which implies 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 yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
Jabra Elite Active 75t'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 alters the signal on its way through.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
Jabra Elite Active 75t's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component produces high audible frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this means that Audio Technica ATH TWX9 generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Jabra Elite Active 75t
The sound pressure level, 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 Jabra Elite Active 75t's battery life is 7.5 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually 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 . Each 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 no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the manufacturer, and the Jabra Elite Active 75t's case is said to have a full charge of 28 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
