IP ratings refer to the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX7, the JBL Endurance Peak 2's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number 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, Sony WF C500 have a rating of IPX4 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 Sony WF C500
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a weight of 26g . We consider a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
The Sony WF C500, at 10.8g weigh less than the JBL Endurance Peak 2 with a difference -15.2g
True wireless devices 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 cables. This is a key difference as some wireless earbuds have cables linking the pair of earbuds .
Sony WF C500 also is true wireless because it has no cables linking the pair of 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 more secure fit.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have sweat resistance
Sony WF C500's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Sony WF C500 also have stereo speakers
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 stay tightly in place, this creates an acoustic seal that tones down background sounds well as preventing the earbuds sound from leaking out at the same.
Both Sony WF C500, and JBL Endurance Peak 2 have passive noise reduction which means that both limit ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, its size determines the sound made by the earbuds.
Sony WF C500 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 4.2mm , 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not imply 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 component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Sony WF C500's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device produces high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Sony WF C500's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices can produce 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.
The Sony WF C500 have neodymium magnets, if used in earbuds 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.
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 longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Sony WF C500's battery life is more than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 4 hours . Every 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.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and the JBL Endurance Peak 2's case is said to have a charge of 24 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
Sony WF C500's charging case has a battery life of 10 hours, less than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 14 hours
It takes 2 hours to fully charge the JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for extended periods.
Sony WF C500 takes 2.5 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 0.5 hours
JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery power is 60mAh, battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the earbuds has a low battery. Its lights display the charging state of your earbuds and case.
Sony WF C500 too have a battery level indicator, these enable you to tell the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or having a low battery.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 support USB TYPE-C, an industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
Sony WF C500 too use USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug comes along with most current laptops, phones, and tablets.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have Bluetooth version of 5, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Sony WF C500 has a Bluetooth version of 5, equal to that of the JBL Endurance Peak 2 . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Sony WF C500 have a maximum range of 9meters, less than that of JBL Endurance Peak 2 by 1meters
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 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 Sony WF C500 support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have 2 microphones.
Sony WF C500 microphones are 2, equal to that of the JBL Endurance Peak 2 . More microphones record better sound quality and help the device to filter out background sounds.
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 earbud microphone can pick up.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 support fast charging. Most often, technologies like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, are used to reduce the time it takes to fully charge the earbuds.
