Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as 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 the second value of 4 means 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, Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro have a rating of IPX7 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 Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro
The JLab Go Air have a weight of 10g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to move with.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, at 12.6g weigh more than the JLab Go Air by of 2.6g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables connecting any part of the device together, JLab Go Air are true wireless for this matter since they don't have wires. This is an important difference since wireless earbuds have wires linking the pair of earbuds together.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro also is true wireless since it doesn't have cables connecting the 2 earbuds .
JLab Go Air have sweat resistance
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are both dustproof and water-resistant.
The earbud foam is designed to be ultracompact and lightweight, with almost no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro have an earbud foam to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
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 Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro also have stereo speakers
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are rated 1meters any depth more than that they will be damaged. Devices that have a higher depth rating are better for swimming.
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (inverted noise) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
The JLab Go Air sit tightly in place, creating a sound covering that reduces your environment noise and also prevents the earbuds music from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that both reduce ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The JLab Go Air have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, its size corellates with the loudness of the device.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JLab Go Air by 3mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yes, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply 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 device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
The JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component generates high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices generate equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure 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 audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, 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 before recharge. 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.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's battery life is more than that of JLab Go Air by 3 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely 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 vendor, and the JLab Go Air's case is said to have a full charge of 15 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's charging case has a battery life of 20 hours, more than that of JLab Go Air by 5 hours
It requires 1.5 hours to fully charge the JLab Go Air's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds when they have been in storage for long periods.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 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.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's battery power is 61mAh. more than that of JLab Go Air by 18mAh
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the device, you simply put down on a compatible charging pad.
The JLab Go Air have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the device has a low battery. Its lights display the charging state of your earbuds and charging case.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro too have a battery level indicator, these allow you determine the charging state of your device, whether fully charged, or having a low battery.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro support 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 range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 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 Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro use a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are designed to filter out noise from the earbuds' 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.
