Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
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 of liquids 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, Powerbeats Pro have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, Powerbeats Pro has a lower liquid rating than Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX

Both Powerbeats Pro and Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX have stereo speakers
ANC utilises advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.

However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Powerbeats Pro's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, this means that Powerbeats Pro make sound with a juicier bass than the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component generates high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
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 given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Powerbeats Pro's battery life is more than that of Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX by 1 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
