Xiaomi Sound Pro has a thickness of 140mm, hence less thicker than the Bang & Olufsen Beosound A9 with a difference -271mm
A subwoofer is a speaker that delivers lower frequencies in the range of 20 -200Hz, the low frequencies are produced by instruments such as pipe organs, bass guitars, even the kick drums, and any explosive sound effects say in a movie. Devices that have a subwoofer inbuilt give a richer bass sound when listening to bass-heavy music like hip hop.

Xiaomi Sound Pro has stereo speakers, what this means is that Xiaomi Sound Pro's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. Xiaomi Sound Pro driver unit is 38.1mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
A passive radiator is a type of driver in speakers that can get extra power and resonance from a speaker system, usually used in smaller speaker systems. This radiator is called passive because it is not powered by electricity but by air pressure found in speaker cones.
The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep, resonant tones that would normally be produced by speakers in large boxes powered by AC.
The audio output power of a device is based on the number of speakers and their power in watts Xiaomi Sound Pro has 40W, this is the amount of power the speakers can be loaded with "comfortably".
A higher audio output power results in louder, clearer sounds though this is not the sole factor determining the device's loudness. To better understand how loud any speaker can get, there are other features to factor in such as sensitivity, sound pressure, etc.
Low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component reproduces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it. Bang & Olufsen Beosound A9's lowest frequency is at 33Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
Xiaomi Sound Pro's lowest frequency is at 45Hz, this means that Xiaomi Sound Pro got a juicier bass than the Bang & Olufsen Beosound A9
High frequency response measures if and how well an audio component reproduces high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it. Bang & Olufsen Beosound A9's highest frequency is at 23,000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
Xiaomi Sound Pro's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that Bang & Olufsen Beosound A9 got a clearer and crispier treble than the Xiaomi Sound Pro
Xiaomi Sound Pro has a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights show the charging status of your speaker.
