Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids such as 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.
Compared to the JBL Endurance Peak 2, JBL Reflect Aero TWS have a rating of IP68 meaning that they are completely dust proof and that of liquids is that, JBL Endurance Peak 2 has a lower liquid rating than JBL Reflect Aero TWS

JBL Reflect Aero TWS, at 13g are lighter than the JBL Endurance Peak 2 with a difference -13g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables linking any part of the device together, JBL Endurance Peak 2 are true wireless for this case since they don't have wires. This is a major difference since wireless earbuds have wires linking the pair of earbuds together.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS also is true wireless because it has no cables linking the pair of earbuds together.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 come with wingtips, these are reserved for workout earbuds and are usually an optional add-on to each silicone ear tip for a better fit.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS too have wingtips, by resting against the triangular fossa and form a secure fit to match vigorous movement, wingtips come in handy for sports and other physical activities. When applied as directed, they secure the earbuds from falling off.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 are resistant to sweat
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
JBL Reflect Aero TWS are both dustproof and water-resistant.
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, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The JBL Reflect Aero TWS also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) and adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
The JBL Reflect Aero TWS have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 stay well in place, creating a sound seal that reduces your environment sounds while preventing the device sound from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both limit ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the loudness of the device.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS driver unit is 6.8mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 3.2mm , a common assumption 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 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 component generates low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal bass
The JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured 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 Reflect Aero TWS's sound pressure level measurement is 99dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be considered differently by different people, so we need to have a way of getting a standard measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery life is 6 hours, a device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chanrgings.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's battery life is more than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 2 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening 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 manufacturer, and the JBL Endurance Peak 2's case has 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.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's charging case has a battery life of 16 hours, less than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 8 hours
