IP ratings refer to the rating of protection given by a casing, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IP44, the JLab Go Air's rating for solids indicates that they are protected against objects greater than 1.0mm such as wire, 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.
In comparison to the JLab Go Air, Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
The JLab Go Air have a weight of 10g . We take in account a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen), at 10.6g are heavier than the JLab Go Air with a difference of 0.6g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables connecting any part of the device together, JLab Go Air are true wireless for this matter since they have no wires. This is a major difference as some wireless earbuds have cables linking the two earbuds together.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) also is true wireless because it has no cables connecting the 2 earbuds together.

JLab Go Air have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and 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 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
The Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.
JLab Go Air stay tightly in place, creating an acoustic covering that tones down your environment noise and also prevents the device music from leaking out at the same.

The JLab Go Air driver unit is 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass. A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines the sound made by the device.
JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device produces high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, 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.
JLab Go Air have neodymium magnets, if used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high SPL, with the use of high magnetic flux.
The JLab Go Air's battery life is 5 hours, 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 chanrgings.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s battery life is more than that of JLab Go Air by 1 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and JLab Go Air's case has a charge of 15 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
