Ingress protection ratings is the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Urbanista Copenhagen'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.
In comparison to the Urbanista Copenhagen, Sony WF 1000XM4 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
Sony WF 1000XM4 have a weight of 7.1g . We take in account a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables linking any part of the device together, Urbanista Copenhagen are true wireless for this matter since they don't have wires. This is a major distinction as some wireless earbuds have cables linking the two earbuds together.
Sony WF 1000XM4 also is true wireless since it has no cables linking the two earbuds together.
Urbanista Copenhagen have sweat resistance
Sony WF 1000XM4's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal 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 Sony WF 1000XM4 have an earbud foam to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
Urbanista Copenhagen 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.
The Sony WF 1000XM4 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Sony WF 1000XM4 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
The Sony WF 1000XM4 sit tightly in place, this creates an acoustic covering that tones down background sounds and also prevents the device music from leaking out at the same.
The Urbanista Copenhagen have a unit size of 12mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size corellates with the sound made by the earbuds.
Sony WF 1000XM4 driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Urbanista Copenhagen by 6mm , many people have a misconception 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
Urbanista Copenhagen's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Sony WF 1000XM4's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices make sound with equal bass
The Urbanista Copenhagen's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component produces high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Sony WF 1000XM4's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this implies that Sony WF 1000XM4 generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Urbanista Copenhagen
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Urbanista Copenhagen's measurement is 115dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Sony WF 1000XM4's sound pressure level measurement is 105dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be perceived differently by separate people, so we need to have a way of getting a standard measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The Sony WF 1000XM4 have neodymium magnets, if used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help generate music at quite a high sound pressure level, with the use of high magnetic flux.
Urbanista Copenhagen's battery life is 8 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 longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Sony WF 1000XM4's battery life is equal to that of the Urbanista Copenhagen . Each time you recharge your device, 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 Urbanista Copenhagen's case has a charge of 24 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.
