Ingress protection ratings is the rating 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 such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX7, the JBL Endurance Peak's rating for solids indicates 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, Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Audio Technica ATH TWX9 has a lower liquid rating than JBL Endurance Peak
The JBL Endurance Peak have a weight of 30g . We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9, at 10.8g are lighter than the JBL Endurance Peak by -19.2g

JBL Endurance Peak have sweat resistance
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
JBL Endurance Peak are both dustproof and water-resistant.
An earbud foam is designed to be ultracompact and lightweight, with almost no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The JBL Endurance Peak have an earbud foam for some people it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
JBL Endurance Peak 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 Audio Technica ATH TWX9 also have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of more advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero thus "diluting" the noise.
The JBL Endurance Peak have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes both devices ideal for plane rides and rush hour travels. The JBL Endurance Peak and Audio Technica ATH TWX9 work with different noise cancellation types, pick the mode that suits your travel or that enhances your relaxation time.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 sit tightly in place, creating a sound seal that tones down your environment sounds while preventing the device music from leaking out at the same.
The JBL Endurance Peak have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the sound made by the device.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of JBL Endurance Peak by 4.2mm , many people have a misconception 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
JBL Endurance Peak's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that JBL Endurance Peak can make sound with a juicier bass than the Audio Technica ATH TWX9
The JBL Endurance Peak's highest frequency is at 22000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio component generates high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this means that Audio Technica ATH TWX9 generate a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Endurance Peak
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Audio Technica ATH TWX9's measurement is 102dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The JBL Endurance Peak's battery life is 4 hours, these last less 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 have to charge the device less often.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's battery life is more than that of JBL Endurance Peak by 2 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, 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 manufacturer, and the JBL Endurance Peak's case is said to have a charge of 24 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before having to recharge the case itself.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's charging case has a battery life of 18.5 hours, less than that of JBL Endurance Peak by 5.5 hours
It takes 2 hours to fully charge the JBL Endurance Peak's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 takes 2.5 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of JBL Endurance Peak by 0.5 hours
JBL Endurance Peak's battery capacity is 75mAh, battery power, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can keep.
The JBL Endurance Peak have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the device has a low battery. Its lights show the charging status of your earbuds and charging case.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators allow you to tell the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or the battery is running low.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power in a single cable.
The JBL Endurance Peak have Bluetooth version of 4.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
