Ingress protection ratings is the level of protection offered by a casing, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating refers to 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, Sony WF 1000XM4 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Sony WF 1000XM4 has a lower liquid rating than JBL Endurance Peak 2
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a weight of 26g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to move with.
The Sony WF 1000XM4, at 7.1g weigh less than the JBL Endurance Peak 2 by -18.9g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables linking any part of the device together, JBL Endurance Peak 2 are true wireless for this matter since they have no wires. This is a major distinction since wireless earbuds have cables linking the 2 earbuds together.
Sony WF 1000XM4 also is true wireless since it has no cables connecting the 2 earbuds together.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 come with wingtips, these are reserved for workout earbuds and come as an optional add-on to each silicone ear tip for a more secure fit.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 are resistant to sweat
Sony WF 1000XM4's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
The earbud foam is designed to be ultracompact and lightweight, with almost no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The Sony WF 1000XM4 have an earbud foam to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have stereo speakers, what this means is that JBL Endurance Peak 2's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Sony WF 1000XM4 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Sony WF 1000XM4 have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 sit well in place, creating a sound covering that reduces background noise and also prevents the earbuds sound from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that they limit ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the sound produced by the device.
Sony WF 1000XM4 driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 4mm , 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 yes, 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 an audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Sony WF 1000XM4's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
The JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Sony WF 1000XM4's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this means that Sony WF 1000XM4 generate a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Endurance Peak 2
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.
Sony WF 1000XM4's sound pressure level measurement is 105dB/mW. How loud a device is can be considered differently by separate persons, so we need to have the means to get a standard measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The Sony WF 1000XM4 have neodymium magnets, when used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, with the use of high magnetic flux.
The 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 given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Sony WF 1000XM4's battery life is more than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 2 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and the JBL Endurance Peak 2's case has a full charge of 24 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
Sony WF 1000XM4's charging case has a battery life of 16 hours, less than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 8 hours
It takes 2 hours to fully charge the JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery. It is highly adivsable to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for extended periods.
Sony WF 1000XM4 takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 0.5 hours
JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery power is 60mAh, battery power, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can keep.
Sony WF 1000XM4's battery power is 40mAh. less than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 20mAh
