Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by a casing, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, while the second 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.
In comparison to the Huawei FreeBuds 5i, Marshall Minor III 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

ANC uses advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero which results in a reduced level of noise.

Marshall Minor III driver unit is 12mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 2mm , 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 it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
Huawei FreeBuds 5i's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Marshall Minor III's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio component makes high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Marshall Minor III's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that Huawei FreeBuds 5i can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Marshall Minor III
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 given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Marshall Minor III's battery life is less than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 2.5 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, 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.
This is given by the vendor, and the Huawei FreeBuds 5i's case has a charge of 20.5 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before recharging the case itself.
