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 represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring 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

Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced technology to actively cancel noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
JBL Endurance Peak have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.

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 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.
JBL Endurance Peak's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
JBL Live Free 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that JBL Endurance Peak make sound with a juicier bass than the JBL Live Free 2
JBL Endurance Peak's highest frequency is at 22,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Free 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies 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, 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.
