IP ratings refer to the rating of protection given by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Technics EAH AZ80's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number 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 AZ80, Jabra Elite 85t 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

Both Jabra Elite 85t and Technics EAH AZ80 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Technics EAH AZ80 have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.

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.
Technics EAH AZ80's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Jabra Elite 85t's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Technics EAH AZ80's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component produces high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Jabra Elite 85t's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that Technics EAH AZ80 can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Jabra Elite 85t
