Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero hence "diluting" the noise.
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.

A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, its size corellates with the sound made by the earbuds.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 driver unit is 9.2mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 0.8mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, this means that Bowers & Wilkins PI7 produce a juicier bass than the JBL Endurance Peak 2
The JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, 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.
The 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 more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's battery life is less than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 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 have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and the JBL Endurance Peak 2's case has a charge of 24 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before recharging the case itself.
