Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring 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.
Compared to the Huawei FreeBuds 5, Tozo T10S have a rating of IPX8 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 Tozo T10S

Both Tozo T10S and Huawei FreeBuds 5 have stereo speakers
Tozo T10S are rated 1meters any depth more than that they will be damaged. Devices that have a higher depth rating are better for swimming.
ANC uses more advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5 have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.

Tozo T10S driver unit is 8mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5 by 3mm , many people have a misconception 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 produce better quality sound.
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 alters the signal while at it.
Tozo T10S's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Huawei FreeBuds 5 can produce a juicier bass than the Tozo T10S
Huawei FreeBuds 5's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component generates high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Tozo T10S's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that Huawei FreeBuds 5 can generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Tozo T10S
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 longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
