Both Audio Technica ATH TWX9 and JBL Endurance Peak have stereo speakers
ANC uses more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The JBL Endurance Peak have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.

Audio Technica ATH TWX9 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which means 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 find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
The JBL Endurance Peak's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, low-frequency response inidcates 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 means that JBL Endurance Peak produce a juicier bass than the Audio Technica ATH TWX9
The JBL Endurance Peak's highest frequency is at 22000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH TWX9 generate a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Endurance Peak
SPL, 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.
JBL Endurance Peak's battery life is 4 hours, a device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chanrgings.
