IP ratings is the level of protection given by a casing, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IP54, the Huawei FreeBuds 5's rating is read as, the first value of 5 denotes 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 Huawei FreeBuds 5, JBL Endurance Peak have a rating of IPX7 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, Huawei FreeBuds 5 has a lower liquid rating than JBL Endurance Peak

Active noise cancellation utilises advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, 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 having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero thus "diluting" the noise.
Huawei FreeBuds 5 have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.

Huawei FreeBuds 5 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size determines the loudness of the earbuds.
JBL Endurance Peak driver unit is 10mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5 by 1mm , 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 yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Endurance Peak's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Huawei FreeBuds 5's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device generates high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
JBL Endurance Peak's highest frequency is at 22000Hz, this means that Huawei FreeBuds 5 can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Endurance Peak
