The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro also have stereo speakers
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are rated 1meters any depth more than that you are likely to lose the functionality of your device. Devices that have a higher depth rating are better for diving.
ANC uses more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
The JLab Go Air stay well in place, this creates a sound covering that reduces your environment noise while preventing the earbuds voice audio from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that they reduce ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
The JLab Go Air driver unit is 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, its size determines the loudness of the earbuds.
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 usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component produces high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices can generate equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured 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, when used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help generate music at quite a high sound pressure level, using 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.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's battery life is more than that of JLab Go Air by 3 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 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 recharging the case itself.
