Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the Technics EAH AZ60'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.
In comparison to the Technics EAH AZ60, Beats Fit Pro 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

However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
Beats Fit Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
The Beats Fit Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device produces high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, Beats Fit Pro's measurement is 101.3dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Beats Fit Pro have neodymium magnets, when used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help generate music at quite a high SPL, with the use of high magnetic flux.
