IP ratings is the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection 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 of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
JLab Go Air have a weight of 10g . We take in account a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are easier to transport.
The JBL Tune 225TWS, at 9.8g weigh less than the JLab Go Air by -0.2g
True wireless devices have no cables linking any part of the device together, JLab Go Air are true wireless for this matter since they don't have cables. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have cables linking the 2 earbuds .
JBL Tune 225TWS also is true wireless because it has no wires linking the 2 earbuds together.
JLab Go Air are resistant to sweat
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, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The JBL Tune 225TWS also have stereo speakers
The JLab Go Air sit tightly in place, creating a sound covering that reduces your environment noise well as preventing the device voice audio from leaking out .
Both JBL Tune 225TWS, and JLab Go Air have passive noise reduction which means that they reduce ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The JLab Go Air have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the sound produced by the earbuds.
JBL Tune 225TWS driver unit is 12mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JLab Go Air by 4mm , as many tend to believe 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.
JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component produces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Tune 225TWS'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 tells how well a particular audio device produces high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Tune 225TWS's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level 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.
JBL Tune 225TWS's sound pressure level measurement is 105dB/mW. How loud something is can be taken 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, if used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help generate music at quite a high SPL, with the use of high magnetic flux.
The 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 usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
JBL Tune 225TWS's battery life is equal to that of the JLab Go Air . 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.
This is given by the manufacturer, 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 several times before having to recharge the case itself.
JBL Tune 225TWS's charging case has a battery life of 20 hours, more than that of JLab Go Air by 5 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 when they have been in storage for extended periods.
JBL Tune 225TWS takes 2 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of JLab Go Air by 0.5 hours
JLab Go Air's battery power is 43mAh, battery power, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
JLab Go Air have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights indicate the charging status of your earbuds and charging case.
JBL Tune 225TWS too have a battery level indicator, these enable you to determine the charging state of your device, whether fully charged, or the battery is running low.
JBL Tune 225TWS have USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power in a single cable.
JLab Go Air have Bluetooth version of 5, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data movement between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
JBL Tune 225TWS has a Bluetooth version of 5, equal to that of the JLab Go Air . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The JLab Go Air have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
JBL Tune 225TWS have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the JLab Go Air
JBL Tune 225TWS support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the JBL Tune 225TWS will work fine with your iPhone. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
JLab Go Air have 2 microphones.
While the JBL Tune 225TWS microphones are 4, more than that of JLab Go Air by 2 . More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background sounds.
The JLab Go Air microphone sensitivity is measured at -38dBV/Pa. The size of the analog or digital output signal from the microphone with its input stimulus is a measure of its sensitivity. It's the 'loudness' of the voice that the earbud microphone can recognize.
JBL Tune 225TWS support fast charging. Commonly, technologies like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, are used to reduce the time it takes to fully charge the earbuds.
