Ingress protection ratings is the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
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 the second number of 4 means 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, Urbanista Copenhagen have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids

Both Urbanista Copenhagen and Huawei FreeBuds 5 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero hence "diluting" the noise.
Huawei FreeBuds 5 have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
Huawei FreeBuds 5 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, the unit size dictates the sound produced by the device.
Urbanista Copenhagen driver unit is 12mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5 by 1mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
Huawei FreeBuds 5's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Urbanista Copenhagen's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Huawei FreeBuds 5 make sound with a juicier bass than the Urbanista Copenhagen
The Huawei FreeBuds 5's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component produces high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Urbanista Copenhagen's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that Huawei FreeBuds 5 produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Urbanista Copenhagen
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Urbanista Copenhagen's measurement is 115dB/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 before recharge. 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.
Urbanista Copenhagen's battery life is more than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5 by 3 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
