Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IP54, the Huawei FreeBuds 5'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.

The JBL Tune 225TWS also have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5 have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.

JBL Tune 225TWS driver unit is 12mm in diameter, making them have a larger 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 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 Huawei FreeBuds 5's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Tune 225TWS's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Huawei FreeBuds 5 can make sound with a juicier bass than the JBL Tune 225TWS
The Huawei FreeBuds 5's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio device generates high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Tune 225TWS's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that Huawei FreeBuds 5 produce a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Tune 225TWS
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, in decibels, dB, JBL Tune 225TWS's measurement is 105dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Huawei FreeBuds 5's battery life is 5 hours, these last less 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 more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
