IP ratings is the level of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating 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.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have a weight of 14g . We prefer a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
True wireless devices have no wires linking any part of the device together, Technics EAH AZ60 are true wireless for this case since they have no wires. This is an important difference since wireless earbuds have cables linking the pair of earbuds .
JBL Tour Pro 2 also is true wireless because it doesn't have wires connecting the two earbuds .
Technics EAH AZ60 are resistant to sweat
JBL Tour Pro 2's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use during long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , 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 JBL Tour Pro 2 and Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Technics EAH AZ60 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.
The JBL Tour Pro 2 too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes both devices ideal for flights and rush hour commutes. Each work with different noise cancellation modes, pick the noise cancellation type that you prefer for travel or that enhances your chill time.
The Technics EAH AZ60 sit well in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background noise well as preventing the device voice audio from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this implies that both limit ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The Technics EAH AZ60 driver unit is 8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines the loudness of the earbuds.
JBL Tour Pro 2 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 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 yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The JBL Tour Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
The JBL Tour Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component produces high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
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 Tour Pro 2's battery life is more than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 2.5 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the vendor, and Technics EAH AZ60's case is said to have a full charge of 25 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
JBL Tour Pro 2's charging case has a battery life of 30 hours, more than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 5 hours
It takes 2 hours to fully charge the Technics EAH AZ60's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds when they have been in storage for long periods.
Technics EAH AZ60 have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the earbuds has a low battery. The battery indicator lights display the charging state of your earbuds and charging case.
JBL Tour Pro 2 too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators allow you tell the charging state of your device, whether fully charged, or having a low battery.

Technics EAH AZ60 have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
JBL Tour Pro 2 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 provides 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 MacBook. 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 JBL Tour Pro 2 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.
The 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 is capable of a very high bitrate of 990kbps, which provides high-resolution audio.
Technics EAH AZ60 have 8 microphones.
JBL Tour Pro 2 microphones are 6, less than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 2 . More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60 use a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are intended to filter out background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
