Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by a casing, against dust 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, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring 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, JEET W1S have a rating of IPX5 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, JEET W1S has a higher liquid rating than Bowers & Wilkins PI7

For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Bowers & Wilkins PI7 are true wireless for this matter since they don't have wires. This is a key distinction as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the two earbuds together.
JEET W1S have wingtips, these are reserved for earbuds for workouts and come as an optional add-on to each silicone ear tip for a better fit.
JEET W1S have sweat resistance
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The JEET W1S also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
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 sit tightly in place, this creates an acoustic covering that reduces background sounds and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out .
Both JEET W1S, and Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have passive noise reduction which means that they reduce ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have a unit size of 9.2mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the device.
JEET W1S driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Bowers & Wilkins PI7 by 1.8mm , 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 yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean 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 frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JEET W1S's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Bowers & Wilkins PI7 produce a juicier bass than the JEET W1S
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device generates high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
JEET W1S's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JEET W1S's measurement is 93dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's battery life is 4.5 hours, these last less than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
JEET W1S's battery life is more than that of Bowers & Wilkins PI7 by 6.5 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and the Bowers & Wilkins PI7's case is said to have a charge of 18 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
It takes 3 hours to fully charge the Bowers & Wilkins PI7's battery. It is recommended to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds when they have been in storage for extended periods.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the device, you just place down on a supported charging pad.
