Ingress protection ratings refer to the level of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value refers to protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
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.
Compared to the Technics EAH AZ60, JBL Live Pro 2 have a rating of IPX5 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, JBL Live Pro 2 has a higher liquid rating than Technics EAH AZ60
Technics EAH AZ60 have a weight of 14g . We take in account a lower weight better because lighter devices are easier to move with.

Both JBL Live Pro 2 and Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
Technics EAH AZ60 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.

Technics EAH AZ60 have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, its size determines the sound produced by the device.
JBL Live Pro 2 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 3mm , 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 produce better quality sound.
The JBL Live Pro 2'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 on its way through.
The JBL Live Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, JBL Live Pro 2's measurement is 93dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Technics EAH AZ60's battery life is 7.5 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 more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
JBL Live Pro 2's battery life is more than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 2.5 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and the Technics EAH AZ60's case has a full charge of 25 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
JBL Live Pro 2's charging case has a battery life of 30 hours, more than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 5 hours
