IP ratings is the rating of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP57, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's rating for solids indicates 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.
In comparison to the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX, Mpow Flame S 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 Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX have a weight of 12g . We consider a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's battery life is 8 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Mpow Flame S's battery life is more than that of Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX by 4 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's case is said to have a charge of 20 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
