Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX7, the JBL Endurance Peak's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes 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.

The JBL Live Pro 2 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
JBL Endurance Peak have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.

However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce 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 frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Live Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that JBL Endurance Peak can make sound with a juicier bass than the JBL Live Pro 2
JBL Endurance Peak's highest frequency is at 22000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio device produces high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that JBL Endurance Peak generate a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Live Pro 2
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, in decibels, dB, JBL Live Pro 2's measurement is 93dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
