IP ratings is the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP44, the JLab Go Air's rating is read as, the first number of 4 denotes 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, Powerbeats Pro 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 prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
Powerbeats Pro, at 20.3g weigh more than the JLab Go Air by of 10.3g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no wires connecting any part of the device together, JLab Go Air are true wireless for this case since they don't have wires. This is a major difference since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the pair of earbuds .
Powerbeats Pro also is true wireless because it has no cables linking the pair of earbuds .
The Powerbeats Pro come with wingtips, these are reserved for earbuds for workouts and come as an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a better fit.
JLab Go Air are resistant to sweat
Powerbeats Pro's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
The Powerbeats Pro are both dustproof and water-resistant.
JLab Go Air have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Powerbeats Pro also have stereo speakers
The JLab Go Air stay tightly in place, creating an acoustic covering that reduces background noise and also prevents the device voice audio from leaking out at the same.

JLab Go Air driver unit is 8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines the loudness of the device.
Powerbeats Pro driver unit is 12mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JLab Go Air by 4mm , 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 are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Powerbeats Pro's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, this means that Powerbeats Pro can make sound with a juicier bass than the JLab Go Air
The JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device makes high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
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, if used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help produce music at quite a high SPL, 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 before recharge. 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.
Powerbeats Pro's battery life is more than that of JLab Go Air by 4 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not 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 manufacturer, and JLab Go Air's case has a full charge of 15 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
