IP ratings is the rating of protection given by a casing, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of 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.
In comparison to the JBL Wave Buds, Urbanista Copenhagen have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids

JBL Wave Buds have sweat resistance
Urbanista Copenhagen's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
JBL Wave Buds have stereo speakers, what this means is that JBL Wave Buds's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Urbanista Copenhagen also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) then adding -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
JBL Wave Buds have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.
The JBL Wave Buds sit tightly in place, creating a sound covering that reduces your environment noise well as preventing the device music from leaking out .
JBL Wave Buds driver unit is 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines the loudness of the device.
Urbanista Copenhagen driver unit is 12mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of JBL Wave Buds by 4mm , 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
JBL Wave Buds's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Urbanista Copenhagen's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal bass
JBL Wave Buds's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component produces high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Urbanista Copenhagen's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, 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.
Urbanista Copenhagen's sound pressure level measurement is 115dB/mW. How loud something is can be taken differently by different people, so we need to have the means to get an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The JBL Wave Buds'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 given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Urbanista Copenhagen's battery life is equal to that of the JBL Wave Buds . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
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.
Urbanista Copenhagen's charging case has a battery life of 24 hours, equal to that of the JBL Wave Buds
