IP ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection 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, LG Tone Free Fit TF8 have a rating of IP67 meaning that LG Tone Free Fit TF8 has a higher dust resistance than JLab Go Air and that of liquids is that, JLab Go Air has a lower liquid rating than LG Tone Free Fit TF8
JLab Go Air have a weight of 10g . We take in account a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
The LG Tone Free Fit TF8, at 5.7g weigh less than the JLab Go Air with a difference -4.3g
True wireless devices have no wires connecting any part of the device together, JLab Go Air are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is an important distinction as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the 2 earbuds .
LG Tone Free Fit TF8 also is true wireless because it has no cables linking the two earbuds .
LG Tone Free Fit TF8 have wingtips, these are commonly used for workout earbuds and come as an optional add-on to each silicone ear tip for a better fit.
JLab Go Air have sweat resistance
LG Tone Free Fit TF8's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
LG Tone Free Fit TF8 are both dustproof and water-resistant.
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 LG Tone Free Fit TF8 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 thus "diluting" the noise.
The LG Tone Free Fit TF8 have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.
The JLab Go Air stay well in place, creating a sound seal that reduces background sounds well as preventing the earbuds sound from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both limit ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
The JLab Go Air driver unit is 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, the unit size determines the loudness of the device.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8 driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of JLab Go Air by 2mm , 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 are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
The JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio device generates high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices can generate equal treble
SPL, 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.
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, using 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 longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8'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 listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This 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 enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8'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 highly adivsable to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been in storage for extended periods.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8 takes 1 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of JLab Go Air by 0.5 hours
JLab Go Air's battery power is 43mAh, battery power, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can keep.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8's battery power is 68mAh. more than that of JLab Go Air by 25mAh
LG Tone Free Fit TF8, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the device, you simply place down on a supported charging pad.
The JLab Go Air have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the earbuds has a low battery. Its lights indicate the charging status of your device and case.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8 too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators allow you determine the charging state of your device, whether fully charged, or having a low battery.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8 have 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 range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8 has a Bluetooth version of 5.3, newer than that of JLab Go Air . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.

LG Tone Free Fit TF8 have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the JLab Go Air
LG Tone Free Fit TF8 support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the LG Tone Free Fit TF8 will work fine with your iPad. If you are planning on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The LG Tone Free Fit TF8 use a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are intended to reduce noise from the desired sound.
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 calculation of its sensitivity. It's the 'loudness' of the voice that the microphone can pick up.
