IP ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, 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, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IP54, the JBL Wave Beam's rating is read as, the first value of 5 denotes that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety, 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.
In comparison to the JBL Wave Beam, Soundpeats Mini Pro have a rating of IPX5 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, Soundpeats Mini Pro has a higher liquid rating than JBL Wave Beam

Active noise cancellation uses more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The JBL Wave Beam have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.

Soundpeats Mini Pro driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JBL Wave Beam by 2mm , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
JBL Wave Beam's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Wave Beam's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio device makes high audible frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JBL Wave Beam's measurement is 100dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The JBL Wave Beam's battery life is 8 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
