Ingress protection ratings is the rank of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro's rating for solids indicates 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 Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro, FiiO FW5 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 True Wireless Pro have a weight of 10g . We take in account a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
The FiiO FW5, at 12.8g are heavier than the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro by of 2.8g

Both FiiO FW5 and Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero hence "diluting" the noise.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
FiiO FW5 too have Active Noise Cancellation making either of the earbuds ideal for flights and morning travels. Each operate with different noise cancellation modes, pick the setting that suits your commute or that suites your chill time.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro stay tightly in place, creating a sound seal that tones down your environment sounds and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both tone down ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, its size determines the loudness of the device.
FiiO FW5 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making both FiiO FW5, and Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro similar in how loud their sound gets , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component produces low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
FiiO FW5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device makes high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
FiiO FW5's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, FiiO FW5's measurement is 108dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The FiiO FW5 have neodymium magnets, when used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help generate music at quite a high SPL, using high magnetic flux.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro's battery life is 4 hours, these last less than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
FiiO FW5's battery life is more than that of Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro by 3 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro's case is said to have a full charge of 16 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
