Ingress protection ratings is the rank 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 say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring 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 value 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, Beats Studio Buds 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
JLab Go Air have a weight of 10g . We consider a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to transport.
True wireless devices have no cables connecting any part of the device together, JLab Go Air are true wireless for this case since they don't have cables. This is an important difference since wireless earbuds have cables linking the pair of earbuds .
Beats Studio Buds also is true wireless since it doesn't have wires connecting the two earbuds together.
JLab Go Air are resistant to sweat
Beats Studio Buds's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
JLab Go Air have stereo speakers, what this means is that JLab Go Air's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Beats Studio Buds also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
The Beats Studio Buds have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
The JLab Go Air stay tightly in place, this creates a sound seal that reduces background noise and also prevents the device sound from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that they reduce ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
JLab Go Air driver unit is 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size corellates with the sound made by the earbuds.
Beats Studio Buds driver unit is 8.2mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JLab Go Air by 0.2mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
The JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Beats Studio Buds'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 indicates how well a particular audio device makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Beats Studio Buds's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices generate equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level 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.
Beats Studio Buds's sound pressure level measurement is 100.5dB/mW. The sound pressure level, something is can be taken differently by different people, so we need to have the means to get an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
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 generate music at quite a high SPL, with the use of high magnetic flux.
JLab Go Air's battery life is 5 hours, a device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Beats Studio Buds's battery life is more than that of JLab Go Air by 3 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and the JLab Go Air's case has a full charge of 15 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
Beats Studio Buds's charging case has a battery life of 16 hours, more than that of JLab Go Air by 1 hours
It takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the JLab Go Air's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Beats Studio Buds takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the battery, equal to that of the JLab Go Air
JLab Go Air's battery capacity is 43mAh, battery capacity, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
The JLab Go Air have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the earbuds has a low battery. Its lights display the charging status of your device and case.
Beats Studio Buds too have a battery level indicator, these allow you tell the charging state of your earbuds, if charged fully, or the battery is running low.
The Beats Studio Buds use USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
The JLab Go Air have Bluetooth version of 5, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data transfers between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Beats Studio Buds has a Bluetooth version of 5.2, newer than that of JLab Go Air . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
JLab Go Air have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Beats Studio Buds have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the JLab Go Air
Beats Studio Buds support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Beats Studio Buds will work fine with your iPad. If you intend on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
JLab Go Air have 2 microphones.
Beats Studio Buds microphones are 6, more than that of JLab Go Air by 4 . More microphones record better sound quality and help the earbuds to filter out noise.
Beats Studio Buds use a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are made to filter out background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
JLab Go Air microphone sensitivity is measured at -38dBV/Pa. The vastness 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 sound that the earbud microphone can pick up.
Beats Studio Buds support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to channel ambient noises so that they can still be heard even while wearing the earbuds
If misplaced in a room, or can't be found in your bag, Beats Studio Buds support the find earbuds feature.
