IP ratings refer to the level of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say 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 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, Jabra Elite 5 have a rating of IP55 meaning that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety and that of liquids is that, Jabra Elite 5 has a higher liquid rating than Technics EAH AZ60
Technics EAH AZ60 have a weight of 14g . We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are easier to transport.
The Jabra Elite 5, at 10g weigh less than the Technics EAH AZ60 with a difference -4g
True wireless devices have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Technics EAH AZ60 are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is a major difference as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the pair of earbuds together.
Jabra Elite 5 also is true wireless because it has no wires linking the pair of earbuds together.
Technics EAH AZ60 have sweat resistance
Jabra Elite 5's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers, what this means is that Technics EAH AZ60's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Jabra Elite 5 and Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
Jabra Elite 5 too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes either of the earbuds ideal for plane rides and morning travels. The Technics EAH AZ60 and Jabra Elite 5 operate with different noise cancellation settings, pick the mode that you prefer for commute or that suites your chill time.
The Technics EAH AZ60 stay tightly in place, this creates a sound covering that tones down your environment noise while preventing the device sound from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both reduce ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
The Technics EAH AZ60 driver unit is 8mm 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 corellates with the loudness of the earbuds.
Jabra Elite 5 driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 2mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
The Jabra Elite 5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
The Jabra Elite 5's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio device makes high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
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 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.
Jabra Elite 5's battery life is more than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 1.5 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and Technics EAH AZ60's case is said to have a full charge of 25 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
Jabra Elite 5's charging case has a battery life of 27 hours, more than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 2 hours
It requires 2 hours to fully charge the Technics EAH AZ60's battery. It is recommended to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Jabra Elite 5 takes 2 hours to fully charge the battery, equal to that of the Technics EAH AZ60
Jabra Elite 5, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the device, you simply place down on a supported charging pad.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the earbuds has a low battery. Its lights indicate the charging state of your earbuds and case.
Jabra Elite 5 too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators enable you to tell the charging state of your device, if charged fully, or having a low battery.
Technics EAH AZ60 use USB TYPE-C, an industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
Jabra Elite 5 too have USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug is part and parcel of most current laptops, phones, and tablets.
Technics EAH AZ60 have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data movement between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Jabra Elite 5 has a Bluetooth version of 5.2, equal to that of the Technics EAH AZ60 . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
Jabra Elite 5 have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Technics EAH AZ60
Technics EAH AZ60 support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Technics EAH AZ60 will work fine with your iPad. 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 Jabra Elite 5 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.
Technics EAH AZ60 support LDAC, a codec developed by Sony which allows streaming high-resolution audio over Bluetooth connections at up to 990 kbps at 32 bit/96 kHz. It can reach a high bitrate of 990kbps, providing high-resolution audio.
