IP ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Technics EAH AZ60'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.
Compared to the Technics EAH AZ60, Beats Studio Buds 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
Technics EAH AZ60 have a weight of 14g . We prefer a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to carry.

Both Beats Studio Buds and Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers
ANC utilises advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.

The Technics EAH AZ60 driver unit is 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, its size determines the loudness of the earbuds.
Beats Studio Buds driver unit is 8.2mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 0.2mm , as many tend to believe 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 imply that they produce better quality sound.
Beats Studio Buds's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Beats Studio Buds's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio device generates high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Beats Studio Buds's measurement is 100.5dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Technics EAH AZ60's battery life is 7.5 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. 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.
