IP ratings is the rating of protection given by a casing, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP54, the Jabra Evolve2 Buds'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 of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Jabra Evolve2 Buds, Skullcandy Indy Fuel have a rating of IP55 meaning that they both have the same rating against dust and that of liquids is that, Jabra Evolve2 Buds has a lower liquid rating than Skullcandy Indy Fuel

ANC makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
Jabra Evolve2 Buds have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.

Jabra Evolve2 Buds's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, in decibels, dB, Skullcandy Indy Fuel's measurement is 105dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
