Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. 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 resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of 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 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.
Compared to the Technics EAH AZ60, Powerbeats Pro have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
Technics EAH AZ60 have a weight of 14g . We prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
Powerbeats Pro, at 20.3g are heavier than the Technics EAH AZ60 with a difference of 6.3g
True wireless devices have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Technics EAH AZ60 are true wireless for this case since they have no wires. This is an important distinction as some wireless earbuds have wires connecting the two earbuds .
Powerbeats Pro also is true wireless since it has no wires connecting the 2 earbuds .
Powerbeats Pro have wingtips, these are commonly used for workout earbuds and come as an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a more secure fit.
Technics EAH AZ60 are resistant to sweat
Powerbeats Pro's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
Powerbeats Pro are both dustproof and water-resistant.
Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Powerbeats Pro also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
The Technics EAH AZ60 sit tightly in place, creating a sound seal that tones down your environment sounds and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that both limit ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
Technics EAH AZ60 driver unit is 8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the loudness of the earbuds.
Powerbeats Pro driver unit is 12mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 4mm , 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 are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The Powerbeats Pro's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
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 given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Powerbeats Pro's battery life is more than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 1.5 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening 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 Technics EAH AZ60's case is said to have a charge of 25 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before having to recharge the case itself.
Powerbeats Pro's charging case has a battery life of 24 hours, less than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 1 hours
It requires 2 hours to fully charge the Technics EAH AZ60's battery. It is highly adivsable to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Powerbeats Pro takes 0.7 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 1.3 hours
Technics EAH AZ60 have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights display the charging state of your earbuds and case.
Powerbeats Pro too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators enable you to determine the charging state of your device, if charged fully, 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 range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Powerbeats Pro has a Bluetooth version of 5, older than that of Technics EAH AZ60 . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Technics EAH AZ60 have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Powerbeats Pro 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 well with your iPhone. If you intend on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The Powerbeats Pro 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, which provides high-resolution audio.
Technics EAH AZ60 have 8 microphones.
The Powerbeats Pro microphones are 2, less than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 6 . More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background sounds.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are made to reduce background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
The Technics EAH AZ60 support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to channel ambient noises so that they can still be heard even while wearing them
The Technics EAH AZ60 support fast charging. Commonly, technologies like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, are used to reduce the amount of time it takes to fully charge the earbuds.
