IP ratings is the rating of protection given by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Beats Studio Buds +'s rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Beats Studio Buds +, Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids

Both Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 and Beats Studio Buds + have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
The Beats Studio Buds + have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 too have ANC making both earbuds ideal for plane rides and rush hour commutes. The Beats Studio Buds + and Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 operate with different noise cancellation modes, pick the setting that you prefer for commute or that suites your chill time.

However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
The Beats Studio Buds +'s lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, this means that Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 produce a juicier bass than the Beats Studio Buds +
Beats Studio Buds +'s highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component makes high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's highest frequency is at 21,000Hz, this means that Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Beats Studio Buds +
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, in decibels, dB, Beats Studio Buds +'s measurement is 100dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's sound pressure level measurement is 107dB/mW. How loud a device is can be perceived differently by separate persons, so we need to have the means to get an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
Beats Studio Buds +'s battery life is 9 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge.
