IP ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring 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 the second value of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Huawei FreeBuds 5i have a weight of 9.2g . We take in account a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
JBL Tune 225TWS, at 9.8g are heavier than the Huawei FreeBuds 5i with a difference of 0.6g
True wireless devices have no wires linking any part of the device together, Huawei FreeBuds 5i are true wireless for this matter since they don't have cables. This is a major difference since wireless earbuds have wires linking the pair of earbuds together.

The JBL Tune 225TWS also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
Huawei FreeBuds 5i have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
Huawei FreeBuds 5i stay tightly in place, this creates a sound seal that reduces your environment sounds well as preventing the earbuds sound from leaking out .
Both JBL Tune 225TWS, and Huawei FreeBuds 5i have passive noise reduction which implies that both tone down ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i driver unit is 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the sound made by the earbuds.
JBL Tune 225TWS driver unit is 12mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 2mm , 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 it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
Huawei FreeBuds 5i's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
JBL Tune 225TWS's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can make sound with equal bass
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device makes high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Tune 225TWS's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that Huawei FreeBuds 5i can generate a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Tune 225TWS
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JBL Tune 225TWS's measurement is 105dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
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 commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
JBL Tune 225TWS's battery life is less than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 2.5 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, 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 charge of 20.5 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
JBL Tune 225TWS's charging case has a battery life of 20 hours, less than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 0.5 hours
It takes 1 hours to fully charge the Huawei FreeBuds 5i's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for extended periods.
JBL Tune 225TWS takes 2 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 1 hours
Huawei FreeBuds 5i's battery power is 55mAh, battery power, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the device has a low battery. Its lights indicate the charging status of your earbuds and charging case.
JBL Tune 225TWS too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators allow you to tell the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or the battery is running low.
Huawei FreeBuds 5i support USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
JBL Tune 225TWS too have USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug is part and parcel of most current laptops, phones, and tablets.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data movement between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
JBL Tune 225TWS has a Bluetooth version of 5, older than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
JBL Tune 225TWS have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Huawei FreeBuds 5i
JBL Tune 225TWS support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the JBL Tune 225TWS will work fine with your iPhone. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i support LDAC, a codec developed by Sony which allows streaming high-resolution audio over Bluetooth connections at up to 990 kbps at 32 bit/96 kHz. It can reach a high bitrate of 990kbps, which provides high-resolution audio.
Latency refers to the time it takes for the audio signal to be transmitted to your earbuds. Huawei FreeBuds 5i have a latency of 94ms, a lower latency reduces audio lag and is particularly important when playing games or watching videos.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i have 4 microphones.
The JBL Tune 225TWS microphones are 4, equal to that of the Huawei FreeBuds 5i . More microphones result in better sound quality and help the device to filter out background sounds.
