JBL Wave Beam have stereo speakers, what this means is that JBL Wave Beam's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The 1More Evo also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
The JBL Wave Beam have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
The 1More Evo too have ANC making either of the devices ideal for plane rides and rush hour travels. The JBL Wave Beam and 1More Evo work with different noise cancellation settings, pick the setting that suits your travel or that enhances your chill time.
JBL Wave Beam sit well in place, this creates a sound seal that tones down your environment sounds while preventing the device music from leaking out at the same.
Both 1More Evo, and JBL Wave Beam have passive noise reduction this implies that they limit ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
JBL Wave Beam driver unit is 8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size corellates with the loudness of the earbuds.
1More Evo driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JBL Wave Beam 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 it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
JBL Wave Beam's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
1More Evo's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal bass
The JBL Wave Beam's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component generates high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
1More Evo's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, this means that 1More Evo can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Wave Beam
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, JBL Wave Beam's measurement is 100dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
JBL Wave Beam's battery life is 8 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
1More Evo's battery life is equal to that of the JBL Wave Beam . Every 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 have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and the JBL Wave Beam's case is said to have a full charge of 24 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
1More Evo's charging case has a battery life of 20 hours, less than that of JBL Wave Beam by 4 hours
