IP ratings is the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed, Google Pixel Buds Pro 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
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed have a weight of 12g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
The Google Pixel Buds Pro, at 12.4g weigh more than the Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed with a difference of 0.4g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is a major distinction as some wireless earbuds have wires connecting the pair of earbuds .
Google Pixel Buds Pro also is true wireless since it has no wires connecting the 2 earbuds together.

Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed have sweat resistance
Google Pixel Buds Pro's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
An earbud foam is made to be ultracompact and lightweight, with little interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed have an earbud foam to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Google Pixel Buds Pro also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.

The Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed and Google Pixel Buds Pro operate with different noise cancellation settings, pick the noise cancellation type that suits your travel or that suites your relaxation time.
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed sit tightly in place, this creates a sound covering that reduces your environment noise well as preventing the device voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both reduce ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
The Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size corellates with the sound produced by the device.
Google Pixel Buds Pro driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed by 1mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Google Pixel Buds Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
The Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device generates high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Google Pixel Buds Pro's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices can generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's measurement is 95dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Google Pixel Buds Pro's sound pressure level measurement is 75dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be taken differently by separate persons, so we need to have a way of getting an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's battery life is 6.5 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Google Pixel Buds Pro's battery life is more than that of Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed by 4.5 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and the Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's case has a charge of 24 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
Google Pixel Buds Pro's charging case has a battery life of 20 hours, less than that of Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed by 4 hours
