IP ratings refer to the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Technics EAH AZ60M2's rating for solids indicates 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.
In comparison to the Technics EAH AZ60M2, Google Pixel Buds 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 AZ60M2 have a weight of 14g . We take in account a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to carry.
The Google Pixel Buds Pro, at 12.4g are lighter than the Technics EAH AZ60M2 with a difference -1.6g
True wireless devices have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Technics EAH AZ60M2 are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is an important difference since wireless earbuds have wires linking the two earbuds together.

Google Pixel Buds Pro's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
An earbud foam is made to be ultracompact and lightweight, with almost no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The Technics EAH AZ60M2 have an earbud foam for some people it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
Technics EAH AZ60M2 have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Google Pixel Buds Pro and Technics EAH AZ60M2 have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60M2 have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.

Google Pixel Buds Pro driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Technics EAH AZ60M2 by 3mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The Technics EAH AZ60M2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Google Pixel Buds Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The Technics EAH AZ60M2's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component makes high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Google Pixel Buds Pro's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that Technics EAH AZ60M2 generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Google Pixel Buds Pro
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, Google Pixel Buds Pro's measurement is 75dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Technics EAH AZ60M2'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.
Google Pixel Buds Pro's battery life is more than that of Technics EAH AZ60M2 by 3.5 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 have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and the Technics EAH AZ60M2's case has a full charge of 25 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before recharging the case itself.
Google Pixel Buds Pro's charging case has a battery life of 20 hours, less than that of Technics EAH AZ60M2 by 5 hours
