Ingress protection ratings is the level of protection offered by a casing, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Beats Fit Pro's rating for solids indicates 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, JBL Live Pro 2 has a higher liquid rating than Beats Fit Pro
Beats Fit Pro have a weight of 11.2g . We consider a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
The JBL Live Pro 2, at 9.6g weigh less than the Beats Fit Pro by -1.6g

Beats Fit Pro are resistant to sweat
JBL Live Pro 2's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use during long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
Beats Fit Pro have stereo speakers, what this means is that Beats Fit Pro's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The JBL Live Pro 2 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) to make 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 as you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
JBL Live Pro 2 too have ANC which makes both devices ideal for flights and rush hour travels. The Beats Fit Pro and JBL Live Pro 2 operate with different noise cancellation types, pick the noise cancellation type that suits your travel or that suites your chill time.
Beats Fit Pro sit tightly in place, this creates a sound seal that tones down background noise and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that both limit ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
The Beats Fit Pro have a unit size of 9.5mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the loudness of 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 , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
Beats Fit Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
The Beats Fit Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device makes high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Live Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured 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. The sound pressure level, something is can be taken differently by separate people, so we need to have a way of getting an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
Beats Fit Pro have neodymium magnets, when used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high SPL, with the use of high magnetic flux.
The Beats Fit Pro's battery life is 7 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
JBL Live Pro 2's battery life is more than that of Beats Fit Pro by 3 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and the Beats Fit Pro's case has a full charge of 21 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
JBL Live Pro 2's charging case has a battery life of 30 hours, more than that of Beats Fit Pro by 9 hours

Beats Fit Pro support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Beats Fit Pro will work well with your MacBook. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
