The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines the sound made by the device.
Technics EAH AZ60 driver unit is 8mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 2mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component generates high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, JBL Endurance Peak 2's measurement is 93dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery life is 6 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 more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Technics EAH AZ60's battery life is more than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 1.5 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
