IP ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Beats Fit Pro's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number 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 Beats Fit Pro, JBL Live Pro 2 have a rating of IPX5 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Beats Fit Pro has a lower liquid rating than JBL Live Pro 2

Beats Fit Pro have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both JBL Live Pro 2 and Beats Fit Pro have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Beats Fit Pro have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.

The Beats Fit Pro driver unit is 9.5mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, its size dictates the sound made by the device.
JBL Live Pro 2 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Beats Fit Pro by 1.5mm , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
Beats Fit Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
JBL Live Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Beats Fit Pro's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component produces high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, in decibels, dB, Beats Fit Pro's measurement is 101.3dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
JBL Live Pro 2's sound pressure level measurement is 93dB/mW. How loud something is can be considered differently by different people, so we need to have a way of getting a standard measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The Beats Fit Pro have neodymium magnets, if used in earbuds 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.
