Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX7, the JBL Endurance Peak 2's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes 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.
Compared to the JBL Endurance Peak 2, JBL Live Free 2 have a rating of IPX5 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 JBL Live Free 2
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a weight of 26g . We take in account a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
The JBL Live Free 2, at 9.8g weigh less than the JBL Endurance Peak 2 by -16.2g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no wires connecting any part of the device together, JBL Endurance Peak 2 are true wireless for this case since they have no wires. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the pair of earbuds .

Both JBL Live Free 2 and JBL Endurance Peak 2 have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
JBL Live Free 2 have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 stay tightly in place, this creates a sound covering that reduces background sounds and also prevents the device voice audio from leaking out .
Both JBL Live Free 2, and JBL Endurance Peak 2 have passive noise reduction this implies that both reduce ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the sound produced by the earbuds.
JBL Live Free 2 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 yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2'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 on its way through.
JBL Live Free 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio device generates high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Free 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means 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 Live Free 2's sound pressure level measurement is 102dB/mW. How loud a device is can be perceived differently by different people, so we need to have the means to get an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
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 commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
JBL Live Free 2's battery life is more than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 1 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and JBL Endurance Peak 2's case has a charge of 24 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
JBL Live Free 2's charging case has a battery life of 28 hours, more than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 4 hours

JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
JBL Live Free 2 have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the JBL Endurance Peak 2
JBL Endurance Peak 2 support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the JBL Endurance Peak 2 will work fine with your MacBook. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have 2 microphones.
The JBL Live Free 2 microphones are 6, more than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 4 . More microphones record better sound quality and help the earbuds to filter out noise.
The JBL Live Free 2 have a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are designed to filter out background sounds from the desired sound.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 microphone sensitivity is measured at -38dBV/Pa. The magnitude of the analog or digital output signal from the microphone with its input stimulus is a measure of its sensitivity. It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the earbud microphone can pick up.
The JBL Live Free 2 support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient sound so that they can still be heard even when wearing them
