IP ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the JLab Go Air Pop's rating for solids indicates 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, OnePlus Buds Z2 have a rating of IP55 meaning that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety and that of liquids is that, OnePlus Buds Z2 has a higher liquid rating than JLab Go Air Pop

Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
OnePlus Buds Z2 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 noise.
The JLab Go Air Pop stay tightly in place, creating a sound seal that reduces background sounds and also prevents the device music from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that both limit ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
JLab Go Air Pop driver unit is 6mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, the unit size determines the loudness of the device.
OnePlus Buds Z2 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JLab Go Air Pop by 5mm , 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 are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
JLab Go Air Pop's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component produces low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
OnePlus Buds Z2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal bass
JLab Go Air Pop's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device makes high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
OnePlus Buds Z2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices produce 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.
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 given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
