IP ratings is the level of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating means 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 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, 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
The Technics EAH AZ60 have a weight of 14g . We consider a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
Powerbeats Pro, at 20.3g weigh more than the Technics EAH AZ60 with a difference of 6.3g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Technics EAH AZ60 are true wireless for this case since they have no wires. This is a key difference as some wireless earbuds have cables linking the 2 earbuds .
Powerbeats Pro also is true wireless since it doesn't have wires connecting the pair of earbuds together.
The Powerbeats Pro come with 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 have sweat resistance
Powerbeats Pro's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
The Powerbeats Pro are both dustproof and water-resistant.
Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers, what this means is that Technics EAH AZ60's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Powerbeats Pro and Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it listens to 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 (inverted noise) giving zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
Technics EAH AZ60 sit tightly in place, creating an acoustic covering that tones down your environment sounds while preventing the earbuds music from leaking out at the same.
Both Powerbeats Pro, and Technics EAH AZ60 have passive noise reduction which implies that both tone down ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
The Technics EAH AZ60 driver unit is 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, its size determines the sound produced by 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 , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Powerbeats Pro's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device produces low audible frequencies and if it alters 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 longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
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 playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and the 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 multiple 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 takes 2 hours to fully charge the Technics EAH AZ60's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for long periods.
Powerbeats Pro takes 0.7 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 1.3 hours
The Technics EAH AZ60 have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the earbuds has a low battery. Its lights show the charging state of your earbuds and charging case.
Powerbeats Pro too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators allow you to tell the charging state of your device, if charged fully, or the battery is running low.
Technics EAH AZ60 support USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power in a single cable.
Technics EAH AZ60 have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, 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 connecting 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 that is 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 the same 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 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 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, providing high-resolution audio.
The 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 earbuds to filter out noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are made to reduce noise from the earbuds' sound.
Technics EAH AZ60 support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to channel ambient noises to still be heard even when wearing the earbuds
The Technics EAH AZ60 support fast charging. Most often, technologies like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, are used to lower the time it takes to fully charge the earbuds.
The Powerbeats Pro support fast charging. It's very similar to regular charging, only that the battery fills up much faster. Say, with Quick Charge 3.0, the battery is charged to 50% in just thirty minutes.
The Technics EAH AZ60 support multipoint of 2 connections, the multipoint feature allows you connect to more than one Bluetooth device and switch between them. For example, you can seemlessly switch calls from one device to another without having to manually disconnect and reconnect.
Technics EAH AZ60 have a mute function, they have the feature to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
With the Technics EAH AZ60, so you can easily access the volume control, pause, play, mute, etc whichever functions are supported on the device.
The Powerbeats Pro too have a control panel on them.
Technics EAH AZ60 support voice prompts. Automatically receive information via audio messages, say if there is a problem with the connection.
Technics EAH AZ60 come with their own special pouch. Carrying earphones without a case, or putting them inside your bag without a casing may easily damage them.
Powerbeats Pro too have a case included, which is useful for safe transportation.
