Ingress protection ratings is the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX7, the JBL Endurance Peak 2's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.
In comparison to the JBL Endurance Peak 2, Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, JBL Endurance Peak 2 has a higher liquid rating than Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)

JBL Endurance Peak 2 have sweat resistance
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use during long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 stay well in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background sounds and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both limit ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the loudness of the device.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 1mm , 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 are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and 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.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
The JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component produces high audible frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, in decibels, dB, JBL Endurance Peak 2's measurement is 93dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery life is 6 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 longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s battery life is equal to that of the JBL Endurance Peak 2 . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and JBL Endurance Peak 2's case is said to have a full charge of 24 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s charging case has a battery life of 24 hours, equal to that of the JBL Endurance Peak 2
It takes 2 hours to fully charge the JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery. It is recommended to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) takes 1 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 1 hours
JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery capacity is 60mAh, battery capacity, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s battery power is 49.7mAh. less than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 10.3mAh
