IP ratings is the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of 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 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.
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

ANC uses more advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Beats Studio Buds have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.

However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate 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 component produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Beats Fit Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
The Beats Studio Buds's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device produces high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
Beats Fit Pro's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices can generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level 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.
