Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IP54, the Bowers & Wilkins PI7's rating for solids indicates that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety, 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 Bowers & Wilkins PI7, Energy Sistem Sport 5 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have a weight of 50g . We take in account a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to carry.
The Energy Sistem Sport 5, at 18g weigh less than the Bowers & Wilkins PI7 with a difference -32g
True wireless devices have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Bowers & Wilkins PI7 are true wireless for this matter since they have no wires. This is a key difference since wireless earbuds have wires linking the pair of earbuds .
Energy Sistem Sport 5 also is true wireless since it doesn't have cables linking the 2 earbuds together.
Energy Sistem Sport 5 have wingtips, these are reserved for workout earbuds and are usually an optional add-on to each silicone ear tip for a more secure fit.
Energy Sistem Sport 5 are resistant to sweat
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have stereo speakers, what this means is that Bowers & Wilkins PI7's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Energy Sistem Sport 5 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 stay well in place, this creates an acoustic seal that tones down background noise well as preventing the device sound from leaking out at the same.
Both Energy Sistem Sport 5, and Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have passive noise reduction this implies that they reduce ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 driver unit is 9.2mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the loudness of the earbuds.
Energy Sistem Sport 5 driver unit is 14mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Bowers & Wilkins PI7 by 4.8mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yes, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Bowers & Wilkins PI7 can make sound with a juicier bass than the Energy Sistem Sport 5
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio device makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
Energy Sistem Sport 5 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, with the use of high magnetic flux.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's battery life is 4.5 hours, a device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chanrgings.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's battery life is more than that of Bowers & Wilkins PI7 by 0.5 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and Bowers & Wilkins PI7's case is said to have a full charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's charging case has a battery life of 20 hours, more than that of Bowers & Wilkins PI7 by 2 hours
It requires 3 hours to fully charge the Bowers & Wilkins PI7's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Energy Sistem Sport 5 takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of Bowers & Wilkins PI7 by 1.5 hours

Energy Sistem Sport 5 support APTX HD too.
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have 6 microphones.
Energy Sistem Sport 5 microphones are 2, less than that of Bowers & Wilkins PI7 by 4 . More microphones record better sound quality and help the device to filter out background sounds.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 use a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are intended to filter out noise from the desired sound.
The Energy Sistem Sport 5 microphone sensitivity is measured at -42dBV/Pa. The amount of the analog or digital output signal from the microphone with its input stimulus is a measure of its sensitivity. It's the 'loudness' of the voice that the microphone can recognize.
The Energy Sistem Sport 5's highest mic frequency is 10000Hz, high frequencies are best for picking up treble. The highest mic frequency of a microphone is known as its upper limiting frequency.
The Energy Sistem Sport 5's lowest mic frequency is 100Hz, low frequencies are better for picking up bass. The lowest mic frequency of a microphone is defined as its lower limiting frequency.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient noises to still be heard even while wearing the earbuds
The Energy Sistem Sport 5 support ambient sound mode as well, helpful when you want to listen to music while being aware of your surrounding, for example when you’re having a jog but still want to be able to hear traffic.
