Both Soundpeats Mini Pro and FiiO FW5 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
FiiO FW5 have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
The Soundpeats Mini Pro too have ANC which makes either of the devices ideal for plane rides and rush hour travels. The FiiO FW5 and Soundpeats Mini Pro work with different noise cancellation settings, pick the mode that suits your commute or that enhances your chill time.

Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this implies that both reduce ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
The FiiO FW5 have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the sound made by the device.
Soundpeats Mini Pro driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making both devices similar in how loud their sound can get , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
FiiO FW5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
The FiiO FW5's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component makes high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, FiiO FW5's measurement is 108dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
FiiO FW5 have neodymium magnets, if used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, with the use of high magnetic flux.
The FiiO FW5's battery life is 7 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Soundpeats Mini Pro's battery life is equal to that of the FiiO FW5 . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the manufacturer, and the FiiO FW5's case has a charge of 14 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
Soundpeats Mini Pro's charging case has a battery life of 14 hours, equal to that of the FiiO FW5
It takes 1.6 hours to fully charge the FiiO FW5's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
