Ingress protection ratings refer to the level 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, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring 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, 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 Live Free 2 has a lower liquid rating than JBL Endurance Peak 2
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a weight of 26g . We prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
The JBL Live Free 2, at 9.8g are lighter than the JBL Endurance Peak 2 by -16.2g
True wireless devices have no wires connecting any part of the device together, JBL Endurance Peak 2 are true wireless for this case since they have no cables. This is a key difference since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the pair of earbuds .
JBL Live Free 2 also is true wireless because it has no cables connecting the two earbuds .
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 come with wingtips, these are commonly used for workout earbuds and come as an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a better fit.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 are resistant to sweat
JBL Live Free 2's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have stereo speakers, what this means is that JBL Endurance Peak 2's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The JBL Live Free 2 also have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of more advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +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 enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 stay tightly in place, this creates an acoustic seal that reduces background sounds and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both JBL Live Free 2, and JBL Endurance Peak 2 have passive noise reduction this means that both reduce ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size determines the loudness of 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 find it difficult to produce high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Free 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
The JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio device produces high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
JBL Live Free 2'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 Live Free 2's sound pressure level measurement is 102dB/mW. How loud something is can be taken differently by different people, so we need to have the means to get an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery life is 6 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
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 playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, 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 multiple 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

The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a 10meters distance connecting 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 used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide 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 well with your MacBook. If you are planning on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have 2 microphones.
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 device to filter out background sounds.
JBL Live Free 2 use a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are made to reduce background sounds from the desired sound.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 microphone sensitivity is measured at -38dBV/Pa. The amount of the analog or digital output signal from the microphone with its input stimulus is a calculation of its sensitivity. It's the 'loudness' of the voice that the microphone can recognize.
The JBL Live Free 2 support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient sound to still be heard even when wearing them
