IP ratings is the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance 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.
The JBL Tune 225TWS have a weight of 9.8g . We take in account a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
JBL Live Pro 2, at 9.6g are lighter than the JBL Tune 225TWS with a difference -0.2g
True wireless devices have no wires connecting any part of the device together, JBL Tune 225TWS are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have cables linking the two earbuds .

The JBL Live Pro 2 also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
The JBL Live Pro 2 have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
The JBL Tune 225TWS sit well in place, this creates an acoustic seal that reduces your environment sounds and also prevents the device voice audio from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that they reduce ambient noise instead of actively using technology 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.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the loudness of the device.
JBL Live Pro 2 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of JBL Tune 225TWS by 1mm , many people have a misconception 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 Tune 225TWS's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Live Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
JBL Tune 225TWS's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component makes high audible frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, 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.
JBL Live Pro 2's sound pressure level measurement is 93dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be taken differently by separate people, so we need to have a way of getting a standard measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
