Both Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro and JLab Go Air have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero hence "diluting" the noise.
The Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.
JLab Go Air stay well in place, this creates a sound seal that tones down your environment sounds and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro, and JLab Go Air have passive noise reduction which means that both tone down ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
JLab Go Air driver unit is 8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the device.
Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro driver unit is 10.6mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JLab Go Air by 2.6mm , a common assumption 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can make sound with equal bass
The JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio component produces high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this implies that Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro generate a clearer and crispier treble than the JLab Go Air
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JLab Go Air's measurement is 103dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro's sound pressure level measurement is 92dB/mW. The sound pressure level, something is can be perceived differently by different people, so we need to have a way of getting an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
JLab Go Air have neodymium magnets, when used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, with the use of high magnetic flux.
