Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are rated 1meters any depth more than that you are likely to lose the functionality of your device. Devices that can withstand more water pressure are better for diving.
ANC utilises advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and then inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
The Beats Studio Buds have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.

However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The Beats Studio Buds's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
Beats Studio Buds's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device produces high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices can generate equal treble
