Ingress protection ratings is the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
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.
Compared to the Huawei FreeBuds 5i, Soundpeats Air 3 Deluxe HS 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

However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Soundpeats Air 3 Deluxe HS's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal bass
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
Soundpeats Air 3 Deluxe HS's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, this implies that both devices can generate equal treble
