IP ratings is the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
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
Marshall Minor III have a weight of 8g . We consider a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to transport.
Technics EAH AZ60, at 14g are heavier than the Marshall Minor III by of 6g

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 , many people have a misconception 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
The Marshall Minor III's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
The Marshall Minor III's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device generates high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
The Marshall Minor III's battery life is 5 hours, these last less than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. 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.
