IP ratings is the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the Marshall Minor III's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, 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.
Compared to the Marshall Minor III, JLab Go Air have a rating of IP44 meaning that they are protected against objects greater than 1.0mm such as wire and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
The Marshall Minor III have a weight of 8g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
The JLab Go Air, at 10g weigh more than the Marshall Minor III by of 2g
True wireless devices have no cables linking any part of the device together, Marshall Minor III are true wireless for this matter since they don't have wires. This is an important difference since wireless earbuds have cables linking the two earbuds .
JLab Go Air also is true wireless since it doesn't have cables linking the pair of earbuds together.
Marshall Minor III are resistant to sweat
JLab Go Air's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
Marshall Minor III have stereo speakers, what this means is that Marshall Minor III's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The JLab Go Air also have stereo speakers
JLab Go Air stay well in place, creating a sound seal that reduces background noise well as preventing the earbuds sound from leaking out .
The Marshall Minor III driver unit is 12mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size determines the loudness of the earbuds.
JLab Go Air driver unit is 8mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Marshall Minor III by 4mm , 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.
Marshall Minor III's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices make sound with equal bass
Marshall Minor III's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, 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, if used in audio devices 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 Marshall Minor III'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 commonly given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
JLab Go Air's battery life is equal to that of the Marshall Minor III . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and Marshall Minor III's case has a full charge of 25 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
JLab Go Air's charging case has a battery life of 15 hours, less than that of Marshall Minor III by 10 hours
It takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the Marshall Minor III's battery. It is recommended to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
JLab Go Air takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the battery, equal to that of the Marshall Minor III
JLab Go Air's battery capacity is 43mAh, battery power, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
Marshall Minor III, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the device, you just place down on a supported charging pad.
Marshall Minor III have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the earbuds has a low battery. The battery indicator lights display the charging state of your earbuds and case.
JLab Go Air too have a battery level indicator, these enable you determine the charging state of your device, if charged fully, or having a low battery.
The Marshall Minor III use USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
The Marshall Minor III have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data movement between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
JLab Go Air has a Bluetooth version of 5, older than that of Marshall Minor III . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The Marshall Minor III have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
JLab Go Air have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Marshall Minor III
The Marshall Minor III support APTX HD, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It supports high-quality 24-bit audio (at a bit rate of 576kbps).
The Marshall Minor III have 2 microphones.
While the JLab Go Air microphones are 2, equal to that of the Marshall Minor III . More microphones record better sound quality and enable the earbuds to filter out noise.
JLab Go Air microphone sensitivity is measured at -38dBV/Pa. The amount of the analog or digital output signal from the microphone with its input stimulus is a measure of its sensitivity. It's the 'loudness' of the voice that the microphone can recognize.
The Marshall Minor III support in/on-ear detection, the sensors in the earbuds can detect when they are removed from your ears .
Marshall Minor III support fast charging. Usually, technologies like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, are used to lower the time it takes to charge a device.
The Marshall Minor III have a mute function, they support the feature to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the earbuds.
The Marshall Minor III, so you can easily access the volume control, pause, play, mute, etc whichever features are supported on the earbuds.
JLab Go Air also have a control panel on them.
The JLab Go Air have a warranty period of 2 Years, the period of time that warrant free repair and adjustment services in case of a malfunction occurring under normal use following instruction manuals.
The Marshall Minor III have voice prompts. With voice prompts, you receive information through audio messages, like if there is a problem with the connection.
The JLab Go Air also have voice prompts .i.e the earbuds will notify you if the battery is running low, and it's time to recharge the earbuds.
The Marshall Minor III come with their own special case. Carrying earphones without a case, or placing them inside your pockets without a casing can easily damage them.
