IP ratings is the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
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 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, 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 LIVE 300 has a lower liquid rating than JBL Endurance Peak 2
JBL LIVE 300 have a weight of 65.7g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2, at 26g weigh less than the JBL LIVE 300 with a difference -39.7g
True wireless devices have no cables linking any part of the device together, JBL LIVE 300 are true wireless for this case since they have no wires. This is an important distinction since wireless earbuds have wires connecting the pair of earbuds together.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 also is true wireless because it has no wires linking the two earbuds .
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 come with wingtips, these are reserved for earbuds for workouts and come as an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a more secure fit.
JBL LIVE 300 are resistant to sweat
JBL Endurance Peak 2's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
The earbud foam is designed to be ultracompact and lightweight, with little interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The JBL LIVE 300 have an earbud foam to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
JBL LIVE 300 have stereo speakers, what this means is that JBL LIVE 300's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both JBL Endurance Peak 2 and JBL LIVE 300 have stereo speakers
The JBL LIVE 300 sit tightly in place, this creates an acoustic seal that reduces your environment noise and also prevents the device sound from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both tone down ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
JBL LIVE 300 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, its size determines 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 , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
JBL LIVE 300's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
JBL LIVE 300's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices can generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, 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. How loud something is can be perceived differently by different people, so we need to have a way of getting a standard 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 for a single charge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery life is equal to that of the JBL LIVE 300 . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and the JBL LIVE 300's case has a full charge of 14 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before having to recharge 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 Endurance Peak 2 have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the JBL LIVE 300
JBL LIVE 300 support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the JBL LIVE 300 will work well with your iPad. 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.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
