IP ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of 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, Xiaomi FlipBuds 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 take in account a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to carry.
Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro, at 12.2g weigh more than the JLab Go Air with a difference of 2.2g

JLab Go Air have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro also have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) and adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero thus "diluting" the noise.
The Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.

Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JLab Go Air by 3mm , 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 yes, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean 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 makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device produces high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level 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.
The JLab Go Air have neodymium magnets, when used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help produce music at quite a high SPL, using high magnetic flux.
