Ingress protection ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's rating for solids indicates 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, JBL Live Pro 2 have a rating of IPX5 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, JBL Live Pro 2 has a higher liquid rating than Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed have a weight of 12g . We prefer a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are easier to move with.
JBL Live Pro 2, at 9.6g are lighter than the Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed by -2.4g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed are true wireless for this case since they have no wires. This is an important distinction as some wireless earbuds have wires linking the two earbuds together.
JBL Live Pro 2 also is true wireless since it doesn't have cables connecting the pair of earbuds .
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed have sweat resistance
JBL Live Pro 2's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc

Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed have stereo speakers, what this means is that Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The JBL Live Pro 2 also have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of more advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.
JBL Live Pro 2 too have Active Noise Cancellation making both earbuds ideal for plane rides and rush hour travels. The Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed and JBL Live Pro 2 operate with different noise cancellation modes, pick the noise cancellation type that suits your travel or that suites your relaxation time.
The Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed sit tightly in place, creating a sound covering that reduces your environment sounds and also prevents the device music from leaking out .

The Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the sound made by the earbuds.
JBL Live Pro 2 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 are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Live Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio device makes high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level 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.
JBL Live Pro 2's sound pressure level measurement is 93dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be considered differently by separate persons, so we need to have a way of getting an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
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 given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
