Ingress protection ratings refer to the level of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value refers to protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Technics EAH AZ60's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 4 means 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, Mpow Flame S have a rating of IPX7 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Technics EAH AZ60 has a lower liquid rating than Mpow Flame S
Technics EAH AZ60 have a weight of 14g . We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are easier to carry.
For a device to be true wireless it must have no wires linking any part of the device together, Technics EAH AZ60 are true wireless for this matter since they don't have wires. This is a key distinction as some wireless earbuds have wires connecting the pair of earbuds together.
Mpow Flame S have wingtips, these are reserved for workout earbuds and come as an optional add-on to each silicone ear tip for a more secure fit.
Technics EAH AZ60 are resistant to sweat
Mpow Flame S's resistance to sweat makes both devices good 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 Mpow Flame S and Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
Technics EAH AZ60 have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
Mpow Flame S too have Active Noise Cancellation making both devices ideal for plane rides and morning commutes. The Technics EAH AZ60 and Mpow Flame S work with different noise cancellation settings, pick the mode that suits your travel or that suites your chill time.
The Technics EAH AZ60 sit tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal that tones down background noise and also prevents the device voice audio from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that they tone down ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
Technics EAH AZ60 have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass. The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size corellates with the loudness of the device.
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 have to charge the device less often.
Mpow Flame S's battery life is more than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 4.5 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the vendor, and the 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 having to recharge the case itself.
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 extended periods.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights indicate the charging status of your device and case.
Mpow Flame S too have a battery level indicator, these enable you determine the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or the battery is running low.
Technics EAH AZ60 have USB TYPE-C, an industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data movement between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Mpow Flame S has a Bluetooth version of 5, older than that of Technics EAH AZ60 . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
Mpow Flame S have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Technics EAH AZ60
Technics EAH AZ60 support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at a similar 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 Mpow Flame S 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 is capable of a very high bitrate of 990kbps, providing high-resolution audio.
Mpow Flame S support it as well, LDAC, can automatically change to a lower bitrate of 330kbps or 660kbps to increase stability.
Mpow Flame S support APTX Adaptive, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It has a variable bit rate (between 279kbps and 420kbps).
Mpow Flame S support APTX Low Latency, a codec developed by Qualcomm. It uses Bluetooth 5.0 technology to provide low latency audio (around 40ms), which is useful when you want to avoid audio lag for example when playing games.
The Mpow Flame S support APTX HD, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It supports high-quality 24-bit audio (at a bit rate of 576kbps).
The Technics EAH AZ60 have 8 microphones.
The Technics EAH AZ60 use a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are designed to filter out noise from the earbuds' sound.
The Mpow Flame S too have a noise-canceling microphone. Especially useful in noisy environments.
The Technics EAH AZ60 support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to channel ambient noises so that they can still be heard even when wearing the earbuds
