IP ratings is the level of protection given by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that 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 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.

Both Jabra Elite 85t and Technics EAH AZ60M2 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and then inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero thus "diluting" the noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60M2 have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.

Jabra Elite 85t driver unit is 12mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Technics EAH AZ60M2 by 4mm , as many tend to believe 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 are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
Technics EAH AZ60M2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Jabra Elite 85t's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
Technics EAH AZ60M2's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio device makes high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
Jabra Elite 85t's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that Technics EAH AZ60M2 can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Jabra Elite 85t
