IP ratings is the level of protection offered by a casing, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX5, the JBL LIVE 300's rating for solids indicates 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.

JBL LIVE 300's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
JLab Go Air's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices make sound with equal bass
JBL LIVE 300's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio device makes high audible frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
JLab Go Air's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal treble
