IP ratings is the level of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection 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 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, Sony WF C500 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Sony WF C500 has a lower liquid rating than JBL Endurance Peak
The JBL Endurance Peak have a weight of 30g . We prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
Sony WF C500, at 10.8g weigh less than the JBL Endurance Peak by -19.2g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables linking any part of the device together, JBL Endurance Peak are true wireless for this matter since they don't have cables. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have wires connecting the 2 earbuds together.
Sony WF C500 also is true wireless since it doesn't have cables linking the two earbuds .

An 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 Sony WF C500 and JBL Endurance Peak have stereo speakers
ANC utilises advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 thus "diluting" the noise.
The JBL Endurance Peak have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.

Sony WF C500 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of JBL Endurance Peak by 4.2mm , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
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 deliver better quality sound.
JBL Endurance Peak's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Sony WF C500's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that JBL Endurance Peak can make sound with a juicier bass than the Sony WF C500
JBL Endurance Peak's highest frequency is at 22000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio device produces high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
Sony WF C500's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that JBL Endurance Peak can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Sony WF C500
Sony WF C500 have neodymium magnets, when used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help generate music at quite a high sound pressure level, using high magnetic flux.
