Ingress protection ratings refer to the level of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX5, the JBL LIVE 300's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids 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.
Compared to the JBL LIVE 300, Beats Fit Pro have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Beats Fit Pro has a lower liquid rating than JBL LIVE 300

Both Beats Fit Pro and JBL LIVE 300 have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, 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 therefore "diluting" the noise.
Beats Fit Pro have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.
JBL LIVE 300 sit well in place, creating a sound seal that tones down background sounds and also prevents the earbuds music from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that both reduce ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines the loudness of the device.
Beats Fit Pro driver unit is 9.5mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JBL LIVE 300 by 3.7mm , 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate 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 component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.

JBL LIVE 300's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
Beats Fit Pro's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices can generate equal treble
