Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the JLab Go Air Pop's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the JLab Go Air Pop, JBL Reflect Aero TWS have a rating of IP68 meaning that they are completely dust proof and that of liquids is that, JBL Reflect Aero TWS has a higher liquid rating than JLab Go Air Pop
The JLab Go Air Pop have a weight of 7.4g . We take in account a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS, at 13g weigh more than the JLab Go Air Pop with a difference of 5.6g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no wires linking any part of the device together, JLab Go Air Pop are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is a major distinction since wireless earbuds have wires linking the pair of earbuds .
JBL Reflect Aero TWS also is true wireless since it has no wires linking the 2 earbuds together.

Both JBL Reflect Aero TWS and JLab Go Air Pop have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
JLab Go Air Pop sit well in place, this creates a sound seal that tones down background sounds well as preventing the device sound from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this implies that both reduce ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
The JLab Go Air Pop have a unit size of 6mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size corellates with the sound produced by the device.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS driver unit is 6.8mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JLab Go Air Pop by 0.8mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean 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 device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The JLab Go Air Pop's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component produces high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JLab Go Air Pop's measurement is 103dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's sound pressure level measurement is 99dB/mW. The sound pressure level, something is can be considered differently by different persons, so we need to have the means to get a standard measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The JLab Go Air Pop's battery life is 8 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 more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's battery life is equal to that of the JLab Go Air Pop . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and the JLab Go Air Pop's case is said to have a charge of 24 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
