IP ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Technics EAH AZ80's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes 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.
Compared to the Technics EAH AZ80, Jabra Evolve2 Buds have a rating of IP54 meaning that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
The Technics EAH AZ80 have a weight of 14g . We prefer a lower weight better because lighter devices are easier to move with.
The Jabra Evolve2 Buds, at 10.8g weigh less than the Technics EAH AZ80 by -3.2g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Technics EAH AZ80 are true wireless for this case since they don't have cables. This is an important distinction as some wireless earbuds have wires linking the 2 earbuds together.
Jabra Evolve2 Buds also is true wireless because it has no wires linking the pair of earbuds together.
Technics EAH AZ80 are resistant to sweat
Jabra Evolve2 Buds's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use during long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
The earbud foam is designed to be ultracompact and lightweight, with almost no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The Technics EAH AZ80 have an earbud foam to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
Technics EAH AZ80 have stereo speakers, what this means is that Technics EAH AZ80's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Jabra Evolve2 Buds also have stereo speakers
ANC uses more advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 thus "diluting" the noise.
The Technics EAH AZ80 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
The Jabra Evolve2 Buds too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes both earbuds ideal for plane rides and morning travels. Each work with different noise cancellation settings, pick the noise cancellation type that you prefer for travel or that enhances your relaxation time.
The Technics EAH AZ80 stay well in place, creating a sound seal that tones down your environment sounds and also prevents the device sound from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both limit ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
Technics EAH AZ80 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size dictates the loudness of the device.
Jabra Evolve2 Buds driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Technics EAH AZ80 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 yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
The Technics EAH AZ80's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Jabra Evolve2 Buds's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
Technics EAH AZ80's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device produces high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Jabra Evolve2 Buds's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that Technics EAH AZ80 generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Jabra Evolve2 Buds
Technics EAH AZ80'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 given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Jabra Evolve2 Buds's battery life is more than that of Technics EAH AZ80 by 2.5 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely 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 AZ80's case has a charge of 17.5 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
