Ingress protection ratings is the rank of protection given by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX5, the JBL Live Pro 2's rating is read as, the first value 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 Pro 2, Energy Sistem Sport 5 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Energy Sistem Sport 5 has a lower liquid rating than JBL Live Pro 2
The JBL Live Pro 2 have a weight of 9.6g . We prefer a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
The Energy Sistem Sport 5, at 18g are heavier than the JBL Live Pro 2 by of 8.4g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables linking any part of the device together, JBL Live Pro 2 are true wireless for this case since they don't have wires. This is a key difference since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the two earbuds .
Energy Sistem Sport 5 also is true wireless since it doesn't have cables linking the pair of earbuds .
Energy Sistem Sport 5 have wingtips, these are commonly used for earbuds for workouts and are usually an optional add-on to each silicone ear tip for a better fit.
JBL Live Pro 2 have sweat resistance
Energy Sistem Sport 5's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
An earbud foam is made to be ultracompact and lightweight, with little interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The Energy Sistem Sport 5 have an earbud foam to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
JBL Live Pro 2 have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Energy Sistem Sport 5 and JBL Live Pro 2 have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced technology to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
JBL Live Pro 2 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
The JBL Live Pro 2 sit well in place, this creates a sound covering that tones down your environment noise while preventing the earbuds sound from leaking out .
Both Energy Sistem Sport 5, and JBL Live Pro 2 have passive noise reduction which means that both limit ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
JBL Live Pro 2 have a unit size of 11mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines the loudness of the earbuds.
Energy Sistem Sport 5 driver unit is 14mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JBL Live Pro 2 by 3mm , 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 it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
JBL Live Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
The JBL Live Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, JBL Live Pro 2's measurement is 93dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Energy Sistem Sport 5 have neodymium magnets, if used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help produce music at quite a high SPL, using high magnetic flux.
The JBL Live Pro 2's battery life is 10 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's battery life is less than that of JBL Live Pro 2 by 5 hours . Every 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 Pro 2's case is said to have a charge of 30 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
