IP ratings is the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
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 of liquids 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, JBL Live Pro 2 have a rating of IPX5 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, JLab Go Air has a lower liquid rating than JBL Live Pro 2
The JLab Go Air have a weight of 10g . We take in account a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
The JBL Live Pro 2, at 9.6g weigh less than the JLab Go Air by -0.4g
True wireless devices have no wires 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 distinction as some wireless earbuds have wires connecting the 2 earbuds .
JBL Live Pro 2 also is true wireless since it has no wires connecting the 2 earbuds together.
JLab Go Air are resistant to sweat
JBL Live Pro 2's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use during long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
JLab Go Air have stereo speakers, what this means is that JLab Go Air's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both JBL Live Pro 2 and JLab Go Air have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero hence "diluting" the noise.
JBL Live Pro 2 have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.
JLab Go Air stay tightly in place, creating a sound covering that reduces your environment sounds and also prevents the earbuds sound from leaking out at the same.
Both JBL Live Pro 2, and JLab Go Air have passive noise reduction which means that both tone down ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
The JLab Go Air have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the sound produced by the device.
JBL Live Pro 2 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JLab Go Air by 3mm , 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
The JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Pro 2'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 tells how well a particular audio device generates high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
JBL Live Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices can 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.
JBL Live Pro 2's sound pressure level measurement is 93dB/mW. How loud something is can be perceived differently by separate persons, so we need to have a way of getting a standard 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 using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, with the use of high magnetic flux.
JLab Go Air's battery life is 5 hours, these last less than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
JBL Live Pro 2's battery life is more than that of JLab Go Air by 5 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and JLab Go Air's case is said to have a full charge of 15 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
JBL Live Pro 2's charging case has a battery life of 30 hours, more than that of JLab Go Air by 15 hours
It takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the JLab Go Air's battery. It is highly adivsable to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for extended periods.
JBL Live Pro 2 takes 2 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of JLab Go Air by 0.5 hours
JLab Go Air's battery capacity is 43mAh, battery capacity, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
JBL Live Pro 2's battery power is 65mAh. more than that of JLab Go Air by 22mAh
JBL Live Pro 2, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the earbuds, you just place down on a compatible charging pad.
The JLab Go Air have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the device has a low battery. Its lights display the charging state of your device and charging case.
JBL Live Pro 2 too have a battery level indicator, these enable you determine the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or having a low battery.
The JBL Live Pro 2 support USB TYPE-C, an industry-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 movement between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
JBL Live Pro 2 has a Bluetooth version of 5.2, newer than that of JLab Go Air . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.

JLab Go Air have 2 microphones.
The JBL Live Pro 2 microphones are 6, more than that of JLab Go Air by 4 . More microphones result in better sound quality and help the earbuds to filter out background sounds.
The JBL Live Pro 2 have a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are designed to reduce noise from the desired sound.
The 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 recognize.
JBL Live Pro 2 microphone sensitivity is measured at -38dBV/Pa. Microphone sensitivity is a measurement of a microphone's efficiency as a transducer.
The JBL Live Pro 2 support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient noises to still be heard even while wearing the earbuds
