IP ratings is the rank of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IP54, the JBL Wave Buds's rating for solids indicates 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 of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the JBL Wave Buds, JBL Endurance Peak have a rating of IPX7 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, JBL Wave Buds has a lower liquid rating than JBL Endurance Peak
JBL Wave Buds have a weight of 9g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
The JBL Endurance Peak, at 30g weigh more than the JBL Wave Buds with a difference of 21g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables connecting any part of the device together, JBL Wave Buds are true wireless for this matter since they don't have cables. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have wires linking the two earbuds together.
JBL Endurance Peak also is true wireless because it has no cables linking the two earbuds together.
JBL Endurance Peak have wingtips, these are reserved for earbuds for workouts and are usually an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a more secure fit.
JBL Wave Buds have sweat resistance
JBL Endurance Peak's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
The JBL Endurance Peak are both dustproof and water-resistant.
An earbud foam is designed to be ultracompact and lightweight, with little interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The JBL Endurance Peak have an earbud foam for some people it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
JBL Wave Buds 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.
The JBL Endurance Peak also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
The JBL Endurance Peak have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.
JBL Wave Buds stay tightly in place, this creates an acoustic seal that reduces your environment noise well as preventing the earbuds sound from leaking out at the same.
The JBL Wave Buds have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, its size determines the loudness of the device.
JBL Endurance Peak driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JBL Wave Buds by 2mm , many people have a misconception 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 are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
The JBL Wave Buds'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 alters the signal on its way through.
JBL Endurance Peak's lowest frequency is at 16Hz, this means that JBL Endurance Peak make sound with a juicier bass than the JBL Wave Buds
The JBL Wave Buds's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
JBL Endurance Peak's highest frequency is at 22000Hz, this implies that JBL Endurance Peak produce a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Wave Buds
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JBL Wave Buds'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 Buds's battery life is 8 hours, 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.
JBL Endurance Peak's battery life is less than that of JBL Wave Buds by 4 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and the JBL Wave Buds's case is said to have a charge of 24 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
JBL Endurance Peak's charging case has a battery life of 24 hours, equal to that of the JBL Wave Buds

JBL Wave Buds have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
JBL Endurance Peak have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the JBL Wave Buds
JBL Wave Buds 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 a similar bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the JBL Wave Buds will work fine with your iPhone. If you intend on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
JBL Wave Buds have 2 microphones.
The JBL Endurance Peak microphones are 1, less than that of JBL Wave Buds by 1 . More microphones result in better sound quality and help the earbuds to filter out background sounds.
The JBL Wave Buds microphone sensitivity is measured at -38dBV/Pa. The size of the analog or digital output signal from the microphone with its input stimulus is a measure of its sensitivity. It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the microphone can recognize.
JBL Wave Buds support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient noises so that they can still be heard even while wearing the earbuds
