IP ratings is the rating of protection offered by a casing, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Beats Studio Buds's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 4 means 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, Beats Fit Pro 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
Beats Studio Buds have a weight of 5.1g . We consider a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
The Beats Fit Pro, at 11.2g weigh more than the Beats Studio Buds with a difference of 6.1g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Beats Studio Buds are true wireless for this case since they have no cables. This is an important difference as some wireless earbuds have wires connecting the two earbuds together.
Beats Fit Pro also is true wireless since it doesn't have wires linking the two earbuds .
The Beats Fit Pro come with wingtips, these are reserved for earbuds for workouts and are usually an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a better fit.

Beats Fit Pro's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
Beats Studio Buds have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Beats Fit Pro also have stereo speakers
ANC uses advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 thus "diluting" the noise.
The Beats Studio Buds have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
The Beats Fit Pro too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes either of the earbuds ideal for plane rides and rush hour travels. Each work with different noise cancellation modes, pick the setting that suits your travel or that suites your relaxation time.
The Beats Studio Buds stay well in place, this creates a sound covering that reduces background noise and also prevents the earbuds sound from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that both reduce ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
Beats Studio Buds have a unit size of 8.2mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the sound made by the device.
Beats Fit Pro driver unit is 9.5mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Beats Studio Buds by 1.3mm , 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 it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
The Beats Studio Buds's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Beats Fit Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices make sound with equal bass
Beats Studio Buds's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component generates high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
Beats Fit Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices can generate equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Beats Studio Buds's measurement is 100.5dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Beats Fit Pro's sound pressure level measurement is 101.3dB/mW. How loud a device is can be perceived differently by separate people, so we need to have the means to get a standard 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 while using less power. They can help produce music at quite a high SPL, using high magnetic flux.
Beats Studio Buds'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 commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.

Beats Studio Buds support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Beats Studio Buds will work fine with your iPad. 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.
The Beats Fit Pro support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
Latency refers to the time it takes for the audio signal to be transmitted to your earbuds. Beats Fit Pro have a latency of 70ms, a lower latency reduces audio lag and is particularly important when playing games or watching videos.
