IP ratings is the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX7, the JBL Endurance Peak'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, Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have a rating of IP54 meaning that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety and that of liquids is that, Bowers & Wilkins PI7 has a lower liquid rating than JBL Endurance Peak
JBL Endurance Peak have a weight of 30g . We prefer a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7, at 50g weigh more than the JBL Endurance Peak with a difference of 20g
True wireless devices have no wires linking any part of the device together, JBL Endurance Peak are true wireless for this matter since they have no wires. This is an important distinction since wireless earbuds have wires linking the 2 earbuds .
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 also is true wireless since it has no cables linking the pair of earbuds .
The JBL Endurance Peak come with wingtips, these are commonly used for workout earbuds and are usually an optional add-on to each silicone ear tip for a more secure fit.
JBL Endurance Peak are resistant to sweat
JBL Endurance Peak are both dustproof and water-resistant.
The earbud foam is made to be ultracompact and lightweight, with little 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, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Bowers & Wilkins PI7 and JBL Endurance Peak have stereo speakers
ANC uses advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
JBL Endurance Peak have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 too have ANC which makes either of the earbuds ideal for flights and morning travels. The JBL Endurance Peak and Bowers & Wilkins PI7 work with different noise cancellation modes, pick the noise cancellation type that you prefer for travel or that suites your chill time.
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 stay well in place, creating a sound covering that tones down your environment sounds while preventing the earbuds music from leaking out .
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 produces sound in the device, the unit size dictates the loudness of the device.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 driver unit is 9.2mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of JBL Endurance Peak by 0.8mm , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply 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 produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, this means that Bowers & Wilkins PI7 can make sound with a juicier bass than the JBL Endurance Peak
JBL Endurance Peak's highest frequency is at 22000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio device makes high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that JBL Endurance Peak generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Bowers & Wilkins PI7
JBL Endurance Peak's battery life is 4 hours, a device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chanrgings.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's battery life is more than that of JBL Endurance Peak by 0.5 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, 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.
This is given by the vendor, and the JBL Endurance Peak's case is said to have a full charge of 24 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's charging case has a battery life of 18 hours, less than that of JBL Endurance Peak by 6 hours
It takes 2 hours to fully charge the JBL Endurance Peak's battery. It is highly adivsable to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been in storage for long periods.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 takes 3 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of JBL Endurance Peak by 1 hours
JBL Endurance Peak's battery capacity is 75mAh, battery power, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the earbuds, you just put down on a compatible charging pad.
JBL Endurance Peak have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights show the charging state of your device and charging case.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 too have a battery level indicator, these allow you to determine the charging state of your earbuds, if charged fully, or having a low battery.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 support USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
JBL Endurance Peak have Bluetooth version of 4.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data movement between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 has a Bluetooth version of 5, newer than that of JBL Endurance Peak . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
JBL Endurance Peak have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the JBL Endurance Peak
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Bowers & Wilkins PI7 will work well with your iPad. 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 Bowers & Wilkins PI7 support APTX Adaptive, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It has a variable bit rate (between 279kbps and 420kbps).
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 support APTX HD, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It supports high-quality 24-bit audio (at a bit rate of 576kbps).
The JBL Endurance Peak have 1 microphones.
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 microphones are 6, more than that of JBL Endurance Peak by 5 . More microphones record better sound quality and help the earbuds to filter out background sounds.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are intended to filter out noise from the earbuds' sound.
