Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring IP54, the Huawei FreeBuds 5i'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 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 5i, Beats Fit Pro 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

Huawei FreeBuds 5i have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Beats Fit Pro and Huawei FreeBuds 5i have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it studies 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 adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
Huawei FreeBuds 5i have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.
Beats Fit Pro too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes either of the earbuds ideal for plane rides and morning commutes. The Huawei FreeBuds 5i and Beats Fit Pro work with different noise cancellation settings, pick the mode that suits your commute or that suites your chill time.

The Huawei FreeBuds 5i driver unit is 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the loudness of the earbuds.
Beats Fit Pro driver unit is 9.5mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 0.5mm , 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 yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
Huawei FreeBuds 5i's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Beats Fit Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio component produces high audible frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Beats Fit Pro's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that Huawei FreeBuds 5i can generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Beats Fit Pro
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Beats Fit Pro's measurement is 101.3dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Beats Fit Pro have neodymium magnets, when used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help generate music at quite a high SPL, with the use of high magnetic flux.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i's battery life is 7.5 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Beats Fit Pro's battery life is less than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 0.5 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and Huawei FreeBuds 5i's case is said to have a full charge of 20.5 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
Beats Fit Pro's charging case has a battery life of 21 hours, more than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 0.5 hours
