Ingress protection ratings is the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
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 the second number of 4 means 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, Sony WF C700N 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

ANC uses advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Sony WF C700N have ANC enabling 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 well in place, this creates an acoustic seal that reduces your environment sounds well as preventing the device music from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that both tone down ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
JLab Go Air Pop driver unit is 6mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the loudness of the earbuds.

However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The JLab Go Air Pop's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Sony WF C700N's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
JLab Go Air Pop's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device generates high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Sony WF C700N's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal treble
SPL, 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.
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 commonly given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
