IP ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to 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 X's rating is read as, the first value 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.
In comparison to the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X, JLab Go Air have a rating of IP44 meaning that they are protected against objects greater than 1.0mm such as wire and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X have a weight of 20g . We prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to move with.
JLab Go Air, at 10g weigh less than the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X by -10g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X are true wireless for this matter since they have no wires. This is an important difference since wireless earbuds have wires linking the pair of earbuds together.
JLab Go Air also is true wireless because it has no wires linking the two earbuds together.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X are resistant to sweat
JLab Go Air's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The JLab Go Air also have stereo speakers
JLab Go Air sit well in place, creating a sound covering that tones down background sounds and also prevents the device sound from leaking out .
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X have a unit size of 13mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, the unit size determines the sound produced by the earbuds.
JLab Go Air driver unit is 8mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X by 5mm , 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 it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component makes high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's measurement is 91dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
JLab Go Air's sound pressure level measurement is 103dB/mW. How loud something is can be perceived differently by different persons, so we need to have the means to get an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The JLab Go Air have neodymium magnets, if used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high SPL, with the use of high magnetic flux.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's battery life is 7 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 more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
JLab Go Air's battery life is less than that of Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X by 2 hours . Every 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 X's case is said to have a charge of 21 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
JLab Go Air's charging case has a battery life of 15 hours, less than that of Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X by 6 hours

The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
JLab Go Air have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X will work fine with your iPhone. If you intend on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
Latency refers to the time it takes for the audio signal to be transmitted to your earbuds. Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X have a latency of 60ms, a lower latency reduces audio lag and is particularly important when playing games or watching videos.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X have 2 microphones.
The JLab Go Air microphones are 2, equal to that of the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X . More microphones result in better sound quality and help the device to filter out noise.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X microphone sensitivity is measured at -26dBV/Pa. The amount of the analog or digital output signal from the microphone with its input stimulus is a calculation of its sensitivity. It's the 'loudness' of the voice that the earbud microphone can pick up.
While the JLab Go Air microphone sensitivity is measured at -38dBV/Pa. Microphone sensitivity is a measurement of a microphone's efficiency as a transducer.
