IP ratings refer to the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value means protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX5, the JBL LIVE 300's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 5 means that they can withstand medium pressure jet that's 6.3mm diameter, similar to garden hose from any angle for 3 minutes at a distance of 2.5 to 3 metres.
In comparison to the JBL LIVE 300, 1More Aero have a rating of IPX5 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
The JBL LIVE 300 have a weight of 65.7g . We prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
True wireless devices have no wires connecting any part of the device together, JBL LIVE 300 are true wireless for this case since they don't have cables. This is an important difference as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the two earbuds .
1More Aero also is true wireless since it doesn't have cables connecting the two earbuds .
JBL LIVE 300 have sweat resistance
1More Aero's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc

Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The 1More Aero have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
JBL LIVE 300 stay well in place, creating a sound covering that reduces your environment sounds while preventing the earbuds music from leaking out at the same.

However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
JBL LIVE 300's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
1More Aero's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
The JBL LIVE 300's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
1More Aero's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
