IP ratings refer to the level of protection given by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring 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.
In comparison to the JLab Go Air Pop, Nuraphone NuraTrue have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
JLab Go Air Pop have a weight of 7.4g . We prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to move with.
Nuraphone NuraTrue, at 14.8g weigh more than the JLab Go Air Pop by of 7.4g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables linking any part of the device together, JLab Go Air Pop are true wireless for this case since they don't have cables. This is a major difference as some wireless earbuds have cables linking the 2 earbuds .
Nuraphone NuraTrue also is true wireless since it doesn't have cables linking the two earbuds together.
JLab Go Air Pop have sweat resistance
Nuraphone NuraTrue's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
The earbud foam is made to be ultracompact and lightweight, with little interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The JLab Go Air Pop have an earbud foam to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
JLab Go Air Pop have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
JLab Go Air Pop stay well in place, creating a sound covering that reduces background noise and also prevents the earbuds music from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that both reduce ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
JLab Go Air Pop have a unit size of 6mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, its size dictates the sound made by the earbuds.
Nuraphone NuraTrue driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JLab Go Air Pop by 4mm , as many tend to believe 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 imply that they deliver better quality sound.
JLab Go Air Pop's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component produces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices make sound with equal bass
The JLab Go Air Pop's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device makes high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level 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.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's sound pressure level measurement is 108dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be considered differently by separate people, so we need to have the means to get an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
JLab Go Air Pop'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 longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's battery life is less than that of JLab Go Air Pop by 2 hours . Each time you recharge your device, 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 JLab Go Air Pop'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 several times before having to recharge the case itself.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's charging case has a battery life of 18 hours, less than that of JLab Go Air Pop by 6 hours
It takes 2.2 hours to fully charge the JLab Go Air Pop's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Nuraphone NuraTrue takes 2 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of JLab Go Air Pop by 0.2 hours
JLab Go Air Pop's battery capacity is 43mAh, battery capacity, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can keep.
The JLab Go Air Pop have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the earbuds has a low battery. Its lights indicate the charging state of your device and case.
Nuraphone NuraTrue too have a battery level indicator, these enable you to determine the charging state of your device, if charged fully, or having a low battery.
The JLab Go Air Pop support USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
Nuraphone NuraTrue too have USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug is part and parcel of most current laptops, phones, and tablets.
JLab Go Air Pop have Bluetooth version of 5.1, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data movement between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Nuraphone NuraTrue has a Bluetooth version of 5, older than that of JLab Go Air Pop . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
JLab Go Air Pop have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the JLab Go Air Pop
JLab Go Air Pop support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the JLab Go Air Pop will work well with your iPad. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
The JLab Go Air Pop have 2 microphones.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue microphones are 2, equal to that of the JLab Go Air Pop . More microphones result in better sound quality and help the device to filter out background sounds.
The JLab Go Air Pop microphone sensitivity is measured at -42dBV/Pa. The extent of the analog or digital output signal from the microphone with its input stimulus is a calculation of its sensitivity. It's the 'loudness' of the voice that the earbud microphone can recognize.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to channel ambient sound to still be heard even when wearing them
Nuraphone NuraTrue have in/on-ear detection, the sensors in the device can detect when they are removed from your ears so that the music is paused.
The JLab Go Air Pop support fast charging. Most often, technologies like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, are used to lower the amount of time it takes to charge a device.
