IP ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value 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 X, Sony WF C700N 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 X have a weight of 20g . We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are easier to transport.
Sony WF C700N, at 9.2g are lighter than the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X with a difference -10.8g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no wires linking any part of the device together, Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X are true wireless for this case since they have no cables. This is an important distinction as some wireless earbuds have cables linking the two earbuds together.
Sony WF C700N also is true wireless since it doesn't have wires connecting the 2 earbuds .

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.
Both Sony WF C700N and Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Sony WF C700N have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.

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 produces sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the loudness of the device.
Sony WF C700N driver unit is 5mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X by 8mm , 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.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Sony WF C700N's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Sony WF C700N'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, measured 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.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's battery life is 7 hours, these last longer 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.
Sony WF C700N's battery life is more than that of Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X by 3 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, 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 Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's case has a charge of 21 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
Sony WF C700N's charging case has a battery life of 10 hours, less than that of Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X by 11 hours
It requires 1.5 hours to fully charge the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights show the charging status of your device and case.
Sony WF C700N too have a battery level indicator, these enable you determine the charging state of your earbuds, if charged fully, or having a low battery.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X use USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power in a single cable.
Sony WF C700N too use USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug comes along with most current electronics.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data transfers between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Sony WF C700N has a Bluetooth version of 5.2, equal to that of the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Sony WF C700N 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 that is 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 well with your iPhone. If you are planning 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.
The Sony WF C700N support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
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.
