IP ratings refer to the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP54, the Huawei FreeBuds 5i's rating is read as, the first value 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.
In comparison to the Huawei FreeBuds 5i, Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 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

The Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro also have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of more advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i have ANC 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 outcompete background sounds.
The Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro too have ANC making both devices ideal for plane rides and rush hour travels. Each operate with different noise cancellation modes, pick the mode that you prefer for commute or that suites your relaxation time.
Huawei FreeBuds 5i sit well in place, creating a sound covering that tones down your environment noise well as preventing the device music from leaking out at the same.

The Huawei FreeBuds 5i driver unit is 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, its size dictates the loudness of the device.
Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro driver unit is 13mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 3mm , 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 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 device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Huawei FreeBuds 5i's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component makes high audible frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that Huawei FreeBuds 5i produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro
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 usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Nokia Clarity Earbuds 2 Pro's battery life is more than that of Huawei FreeBuds 5i by 1.5 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This 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 enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
