Both Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 and Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) and adding -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 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 noise.

The Technics EAH AZ60 have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, its size determines the loudness of the device.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 driver unit is 7mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 1mm , 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 it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's highest frequency is at 21000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device produces high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's measurement is 107dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The 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 commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's battery life is less than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 0.5 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening 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 Technics EAH AZ60's case is said to have a charge of 25 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's charging case has a battery life of 21 hours, less than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 4 hours
