IP ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring IP57, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's rating is read as, the first value of 5 denotes 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 the second number of 7 means that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.
Compared to the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX, JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a rating of IPX7 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids

The JBL Endurance Peak 2 also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (inverted noise) to make zero thus "diluting" the noise.
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX sit tightly in place, creating a sound seal that reduces background sounds while preventing the device sound from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that they reduce ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX driver unit is 9.2mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the loudness of the earbuds.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX by 0.8mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX'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 makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JBL Endurance Peak 2's measurement is 93dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's battery life is 8 hours, a device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chanrgings.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery life is less than that of Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX by 2 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the vendor, and the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's case is said to have a full charge of 20 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before having to recharge the case itself.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's charging case has a battery life of 24 hours, more than that of Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX by 4 hours
