Jabra Elite 5 driver unit is 6mm in diameter, making both devices similar in how loud their sound can get , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
The JLab Go Air Pop's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Jabra Elite 5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal bass
The JLab Go Air Pop's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio device produces high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Jabra Elite 5's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices can generate equal treble
