IP ratings is the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value refers to protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IP54, the Huawei FreeBuds 5i'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.
In comparison to the Huawei FreeBuds 5i, JBL Endurance Peak have a rating of IPX7 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, JBL Endurance Peak has a higher liquid rating than Huawei FreeBuds 5i

Huawei FreeBuds 5i have stereo speakers, what this means is that Huawei FreeBuds 5i's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The JBL Endurance Peak also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i 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 device volume to overcome background sounds.
JBL Endurance Peak too have Active Noise Cancellation making either of the earbuds ideal for flights and morning travels. Each work with different noise cancellation modes, pick the mode that you prefer for commute or that enhances your relaxation time.
Huawei FreeBuds 5i sit well in place, creating an acoustic seal that tones down background sounds and also prevents the device sound from leaking out .
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size determines the loudness of the device.
JBL Endurance Peak driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making both JBL Endurance Peak, and Huawei FreeBuds 5i similar in how loud their sound can get , as many tend to believe 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Huawei FreeBuds 5i's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Endurance Peak's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, this means that JBL Endurance Peak can produce a juicier bass than the Huawei FreeBuds 5i
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Endurance Peak's highest frequency is at 22000Hz, this implies that Huawei FreeBuds 5i can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Endurance Peak
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i's battery life is 7.5 hours, these last longer 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 have to charge the device less often.
JBL Endurance Peak's battery life is less than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 3.5 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and the Huawei FreeBuds 5i's case is said to have a charge of 20.5 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
