Ingress protection ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
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 the second value of 7 means 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
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a weight of 26g . We take in account a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to carry.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS, at 13g weigh less than the JBL Endurance Peak 2 with a difference -13g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no wires connecting any part of the device together, JBL Endurance Peak 2 are true wireless for this case since they don't have cables. This is a key distinction as some wireless earbuds have wires connecting the two earbuds .
JBL Reflect Aero TWS also is true wireless because it doesn't have wires connecting the 2 earbuds .
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 come with wingtips, these are commonly used for workout earbuds and come as an optional add-on to each silicone ear tip for a more secure 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. If 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 ideal for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
JBL Reflect Aero TWS are both dustproof and water-resistant.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent 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 uses more advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The JBL Reflect Aero TWS have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 sit well in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces your environment sounds well as preventing the earbuds sound from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that they reduce 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, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size corellates with the sound produced by the earbuds.
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 , 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 yes, larger drivers are capable of generating 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 an audio device produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal bass
JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component makes high audible frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level 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. How loud something is can be perceived differently by different persons, 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 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 Reflect Aero TWS's battery life is more than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 2 hours . 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 have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and JBL Endurance Peak 2's case has a full 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.

The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS 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. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the JBL Endurance Peak 2 will work well with your iPhone. If you intend 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.
