Ingress protection ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IP68, the JBL Reflect Aero TWS's rating is read as, the first value of 6 denotes that they are completely dust proof, and of liquids that they are protected against the effects of continuous immersion in water, ingress of water in quantities causing harmful effects shall not be possible. Conditions should be more severe than for numeral 7..

Both Beats Fit Pro and JBL Reflect Aero TWS have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
The JBL Reflect Aero TWS have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.
Beats Fit Pro too have ANC making either of the earbuds ideal for plane rides and rush hour commutes. The JBL Reflect Aero TWS and Beats Fit Pro operate with different noise cancellation settings, pick the setting that suits your commute or that suites your chill time.
The JBL Reflect Aero TWS stay tightly in place, this creates an acoustic covering that tones down your environment sounds and also prevents the device music from leaking out at the same.

JBL Reflect Aero TWS driver unit is 6.8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the sound made by the earbuds.
Beats Fit Pro driver unit is 9.5mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JBL Reflect Aero TWS by 2.7mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
The JBL Reflect Aero TWS'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 makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Beats Fit Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal bass
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device makes high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Beats Fit Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JBL Reflect Aero TWS's measurement is 99dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Beats Fit Pro's sound pressure level measurement is 101.3dB/mW. How loud a device is can be perceived differently by separate people, so we need to have a way of getting a standard measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
Beats Fit Pro have neodymium magnets, when used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, with the use of high magnetic flux.
The JBL Reflect Aero TWS's battery life is 8 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
