IP ratings is the level of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Technics EAH AZ60's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes 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.

Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero hence "diluting" the noise.
Technics EAH AZ60 have ANC allowing 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.

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 deliver better quality sound.
The JBL Tour Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Tour Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
The Technics EAH AZ60's battery life is 7.5 hours, a device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
