Ingress protection ratings is the level of protection offered by a casing, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds'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.
True wireless devices have no wires linking any part of the device together, Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds are true wireless for this case since they don't have wires. This is a major distinction since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the 2 earbuds .

The JBL Tour Pro 2 also have stereo speakers
ANC uses more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then adding -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
The JBL Tour Pro 2 have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.

However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
JBL Tour Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device produces high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
JBL Tour Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds's measurement is 91dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds's battery life is 3 hours, these last less 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 have to charge the device less often.
