Ingress protection ratings refer to the level of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents 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 number 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, 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

The Tozo T10S also 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.
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
Huawei FreeBuds 5 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.

However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Tozo T10S's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Huawei FreeBuds 5 can make sound with a juicier bass than the Tozo T10S
Huawei FreeBuds 5's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device produces high audible frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Tozo T10S's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that Huawei FreeBuds 5 produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Tozo T10S
