Ingress protection ratings is the level 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, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Beats Studio Buds's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
JBL Tune 225TWS have a weight of 9.8g . We prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
Beats Studio Buds, at 5.1g are lighter than the JBL Tune 225TWS with a difference -4.7g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables linking any part of the device together, JBL Tune 225TWS are true wireless for this case since they don't have cables. This is a major distinction since wireless earbuds have cables linking the 2 earbuds .
Beats Studio Buds also is true wireless since it has no cables linking the pair of earbuds together.
Beats Studio Buds are resistant to sweat
JBL Tune 225TWS have stereo speakers, what this means is that JBL Tune 225TWS's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Beats Studio Buds and JBL Tune 225TWS have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
Beats Studio Buds have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
The JBL Tune 225TWS stay tightly in place, this creates an acoustic seal that reduces your environment noise while preventing the device voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which means that they reduce ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The JBL Tune 225TWS driver unit is 12mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size corellates with the sound produced by the device.
Beats Studio Buds driver unit is 8.2mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of JBL Tune 225TWS by 3.8mm , 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
The JBL Tune 225TWS's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Beats Studio Buds's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
The JBL Tune 225TWS's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Beats Studio Buds's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JBL Tune 225TWS's measurement is 105dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Beats Studio Buds's sound pressure level measurement is 100.5dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be taken differently by separate persons, so we need to have the means to get an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
JBL Tune 225TWS's battery life is 5 hours, these last less than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Beats Studio Buds's battery life is more than that of JBL Tune 225TWS by 3 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the manufacturer, and JBL Tune 225TWS's case has a full charge of 20 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before recharging the case itself.

The JBL Tune 225TWS have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
Beats Studio Buds have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the JBL Tune 225TWS
JBL Tune 225TWS support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since 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 Tune 225TWS 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.
The Beats Studio Buds 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.
JBL Tune 225TWS have 4 microphones.
Beats Studio Buds microphones are 6, more than that of JBL Tune 225TWS by 2 . More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out noise.
The Beats Studio Buds have a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are designed to reduce background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
