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 refers to 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 value of 7 means that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.
In comparison to the JBL Endurance Peak, JBL Live Free 2 have a rating of IPX5 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, JBL Live Free 2 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 easier to transport.
The JBL Live Free 2, at 9.8g are lighter than the JBL Endurance Peak by -20.2g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables connecting any part of the device together, JBL Endurance Peak are true wireless for this matter since they have no wires. This is a key difference as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the 2 earbuds together.

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 to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
JBL Endurance Peak have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The JBL Live Free 2 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) and adding -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 thus "diluting" the noise.
JBL Endurance Peak have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
The JBL Live Free 2 too have ANC which makes either of the earbuds ideal for flights and morning travels. Each operate with different noise cancellation types, pick the noise cancellation type that suits your commute or that enhances your chill time.

JBL Live Free 2 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JBL Endurance Peak by 1mm , 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 deliver better quality sound.
JBL Endurance Peak's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Live Free 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that JBL Endurance Peak produce a juicier bass than the JBL Live Free 2
JBL Endurance Peak's highest frequency is at 22000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device generates high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Free 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that JBL Endurance Peak can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Live Free 2
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JBL Live Free 2'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, these last less than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
