IP ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by a casing, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IP67, the Raycon Impact Earbuds's rating for solids indicates that they are completely dust proof, and the second value of 7 means that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.
In comparison to the Raycon Impact Earbuds, Sony WF C500 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, Sony WF C500 has a lower liquid rating than Raycon Impact Earbuds
The Raycon Impact Earbuds have a weight of 170g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to move with.
Sony WF C500, at 10.8g are lighter than the Raycon Impact Earbuds with a difference -159.2g
True wireless devices have no wires linking any part of the device together, Raycon Impact Earbuds are true wireless for this case since they have no wires. This is a key difference as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the 2 earbuds together.

The Sony WF C500 also have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of more advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Raycon Impact Earbuds have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
The Raycon Impact Earbuds stay well in place, this creates a sound covering that reduces background sounds well as preventing the earbuds voice audio from leaking out .
Both Sony WF C500, and Raycon Impact Earbuds have passive noise reduction which means that both tone down ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
The Raycon Impact Earbuds have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, its size corellates with the loudness of the earbuds.
Sony WF C500 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Raycon Impact Earbuds by 2.2mm , 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 imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Raycon Impact Earbuds's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Sony WF C500's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Raycon Impact Earbuds can make sound with a juicier bass than the Sony WF C500
The Raycon Impact Earbuds's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component makes high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Sony WF C500's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that Raycon Impact Earbuds can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Sony WF C500
The Sony WF C500 have neodymium magnets, if used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help generate music at quite a high sound pressure level, using high magnetic flux.
The Raycon Impact Earbuds's battery life is 12 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. 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.
