IP ratings is the rating of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating refers to 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 is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number 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 Marshall Minor III, Technics EAH AZ60 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
The Marshall Minor III have a weight of 8g . We take in account a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
The Technics EAH AZ60, at 14g weigh more than the Marshall Minor III with a difference of 6g

Both Technics EAH AZ60 and Marshall Minor III have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60 stay well in place, this creates an acoustic seal that reduces background sounds and also prevents the earbuds music from leaking out .
The Marshall Minor III have a unit size of 12mm 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 device.
Technics EAH AZ60 driver unit is 8mm in diameter, which means 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 find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
The Marshall Minor III's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
The Marshall Minor III's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
The Marshall Minor III's battery life is 5 hours, a device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Technics EAH AZ60's battery life is more than that of Marshall Minor III by 2.5 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and the Marshall Minor III's case is said to have a full charge of 25 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
Technics EAH AZ60's charging case has a battery life of 25 hours, equal to that of the Marshall Minor III
