IP ratings refer to the level of protection given 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, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX5, the JBL LIVE 300's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes 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.
Compared to the JBL LIVE 300, JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a rating of IPX7 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, JBL Endurance Peak 2 has a higher liquid rating than JBL LIVE 300
JBL LIVE 300 have a weight of 65.7g . We consider a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to transport.
JBL Endurance Peak 2, at 26g are lighter than the JBL LIVE 300 by -39.7g
True wireless devices have no cables linking any part of the device together, JBL LIVE 300 are true wireless for this matter since they don't have wires. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have wires linking the 2 earbuds .
JBL Endurance Peak 2 also is true wireless since it doesn't have wires linking the 2 earbuds together.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have wingtips, these are commonly used for workout earbuds and come as an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a better fit.
JBL LIVE 300 have sweat resistance
JBL Endurance Peak 2's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc

JBL LIVE 300 have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both JBL Endurance Peak 2 and JBL LIVE 300 have stereo speakers
The JBL LIVE 300 stay well in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces your environment sounds well as preventing the device sound from leaking out at the same.
Both JBL Endurance Peak 2, and JBL LIVE 300 have passive noise reduction this means that they reduce ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The JBL LIVE 300 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the loudness of the device.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JBL LIVE 300 by 4.2mm , 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 it's true that, 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 inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
JBL Endurance Peak 2'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 tells how well a particular audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices can generate equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JBL LIVE 300's measurement is 95dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's sound pressure level measurement is 93dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be considered differently by separate people, so we need to have the means to get an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The JBL LIVE 300's battery life is 6 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery life is equal to that of the JBL LIVE 300 . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the vendor, and JBL LIVE 300's case has a charge of 14 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's charging case has a battery life of 24 hours, more than that of JBL LIVE 300 by 10 hours

JBL LIVE 300 support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the JBL LIVE 300 will work well with your iPhone. If you intend on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
