IP ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by a casing, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that 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.
Compared to the JLab Go Air, Nothing Ear 1 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 consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are easier to transport.
Nothing Ear 1, at 9.4g weigh less than the JLab Go Air with a difference -0.6g
True wireless devices have no cables linking any part of the device together, JLab Go Air are true wireless for this case since they don't have wires. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the 2 earbuds .
Nothing Ear 1 also is true wireless because it has no wires linking the pair of earbuds together.
JLab Go Air have sweat resistance
Nothing Ear 1's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal 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, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Nothing Ear 1 also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
Nothing Ear 1 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.
The JLab Go Air stay tightly in place, creating a sound covering that reduces your environment noise and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this implies that they limit ambient noise instead of actively using ANC 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.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the device.
Nothing Ear 1 driver unit is 11.6mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JLab Go Air by 3.6mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Nothing Ear 1's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal bass
JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device makes high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Nothing Ear 1's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices can generate 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.
The 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 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 given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Nothing Ear 1's battery life is equal to that of the JLab Go Air . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not 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 the JLab Go Air's case has a full charge of 15 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before recharging the case itself.
Nothing Ear 1's charging case has a battery life of 29 hours, more than that of JLab Go Air by 14 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.
Nothing Ear 1 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 power, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can keep.
The Nothing Ear 1, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the earbuds, you simply put 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 status of your earbuds and case.
Nothing Ear 1 too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators enable you determine the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or the battery is running low.
Nothing Ear 1 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 close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Nothing Ear 1 has a Bluetooth version of 5.2, newer than that of JLab Go Air . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The JLab Go Air have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Nothing Ear 1 have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the JLab Go Air
Nothing Ear 1 have a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are designed to reduce background sounds 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 sound that the microphone can recognize.
The Nothing Ear 1 support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to channel ambient noises to still be heard even when wearing them
The Nothing Ear 1 have in/on-ear detection, the sensors in the earbuds can detect when removed from your ears so that the music is paused.
If lost in a room, or can't easily find them in your bag, the Nothing Ear 1 have a find earbuds feature.
Nothing Ear 1 support fast charging. Most often, technologies like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, are used to lower the amount of time it takes to fully charge the earbuds.
The JLab Go Air, so you can access the volume control, pause, play, mute, etc whichever functions are supported on the earbuds.
Nothing Ear 1 also have a control panel on them.
JLab Go Air have a warranty period of 2 Years, the period of time that warrant free repair and adjustment services in case of a malfunction occurring under normal use that has followed instruction manuals.
If covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement a malfunction occurs. Nothing Ear 1 have a warranty period of 1Years, less than that of JLab Go Air by 1 Years .
The JLab Go Air have voice prompts. With voice prompts, you receive information through audio messages, like if there is a problem with the connection.
The Nothing Ear 1 too support voice prompts .i.e the earbuds will notify you when the battery is low, and it's time to recharge the device.
Nothing Ear 1 come with their own special pouch. Carrying earphones openly, or putting them inside your bag without a cover can easily put them at risk of getting damaged.
