JLab JBuds Lux ANC have a weight of 235g, these weigh below 320g, which we consider as the highest average a headphone should weigh for comfort during long use.
We prefer a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
The Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT, at 250g are heavier than the JLab JBuds Lux ANC by 15g
Detachable cables are cables that have connectors on both ends. One end goes into your headphone earpieces, while the other end is inserted into an audio source. Some new headphones, and not just the expensive ones, are coming with detachable cables, JLab JBuds Lux ANC are one of those.
With a detachable cable, Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT too can use alternative cables and if the cable is pulled, it will pop out instead of breaking.
JLab JBuds Lux ANC are foldable, which makes them more portable. Foldable headphones are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
The Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT too can fold up, foldable headphones can reduce their size by 60% to 70% when folded.
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement, but remember that every cable based on the conducting material used has a certain amount of parasitic resistance, inductance, and capacitance. How much depends on the length and construction. Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT comes with a 1.2meters cable.
Over-ear headphones have larger earpads that fit around your entire ear JLab JBuds Lux ANC have a comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This design is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors.
Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT with this design offer potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
JLab JBuds Lux ANC have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 outside (noise from your surrounding) and adding -1 inside (counter sound within the device) to make 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
JLab JBuds Lux ANC allow you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise.
Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT too have active noise cancellation making both devices ideal for plane rides and morning commutes. Each may work with different noise cancellation modes, pick the setting, mode, or noise cancellation type that suits your commute or that enhances your relaxation time.
Passive Noise Cancellation uses well-designed ear cups to seal out unwanted noise. This is used for both in-ear earphones and over-ear headphones where the headphone itself will keep surrounding noise out.
The JLab JBuds Lux ANC sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that also the Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT isolates you from ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
Low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device reproduces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on the way through. JLab JBuds Lux ANC's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, this implies that JLab JBuds Lux ANC got a juicier bass than the Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT
High frequency response measures if and how well an audio device reproduces high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on the way through. JLab JBuds Lux ANC's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT got a clearer and crispier treble than the JLab JBuds Lux ANC
Sound pressure is the average variation in atmospheric pressure caused by the sound, the sound level .i.e how loud something is can be perceived differently by different people so we need to have a way of getting an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The sound pressure level, SPL, is the pressure level of a sound, measured in decibels, dB, JLab JBuds Lux ANC's measurement is 98dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT's sound pressure level measurement is 98dB/mW.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. JLab JBuds Lux ANC driver unit is 40mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT driver unit is 40mm in diameter, making both devices similar in how loud their sound gets , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty reproducing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better sound.
Defined as the device's resistance to the electromagnetic current, when electricity flows through a conductor, it faces electrical resistance that counters the flow of current. The resistance of a wire is measured in ohms. JLab JBuds Lux ANC's impedance is 16Ohms, the lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT's impedance is 35Ohms. The impedance of earbuds is the electrical resistance of the driver unit present on the inside.
If your headphones play wirelessly, cancel ambient noise, or enhance your listening experience with active features, their battery life will reduce over time. The device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often. JLab JBuds Lux ANC's battery life is 70 hours
Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT's battery life is 25 hours. Each time you recharge your headphones, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first. But over a few years, you may find that your device, no longer plays for long like it used to.
It takes 2.5 hours to fully charge the JLab JBuds Lux ANC's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the headphones for the first time or when they have been unused for extended periods.
Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT takes 5 hours to fully charge the battery
JLab JBuds Lux ANC have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights show the charging status of your headphones.

Being an industry standard audio plug, a standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards. This means that it is commonly used in stereo headphones to your phone or connecting your phone to an external amplifier, sound bars, your car radio, etc. Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT has this connector giving it a wider range of connectivity with most of the sound devices out there. All plugs have at least a tip and sleeve with the number of rings that stand as a differentiating factor.
Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT have only 4 microphones, more microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
JLab JBuds Lux ANC use a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
The Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT too use a noise-canceling type of microphone.
The magnitude of the analog or digital output signal from the microphone with that input stimulus is a measure of its sensitivity. Microphone sensitivity is a measurement of a microphone's efficiency as a transducer (how well it converts acoustical energy to electrical energy). Audio Technica ATH ANC700BT microphone sensitivity is measured at -44dBV/Pa
JLab JBuds Lux ANC support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient noises so that they can still be heard. It’s useful when you want to listen to music but also be aware of what’s happening around you, for example when you’re having a jog but would still want to be able to hear traffic.
JLab JBuds Lux ANC support multipoint, which allows you to link to more Bluetooth devices and switch between them. For example, you can easily switch calls from one device to another without having to manually disconnect and reconnect.
