IP ratings refer to the rating of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP54, the Nothing Ear 2'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 Nothing Ear 2, Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX have a rating of IP57 meaning that they both have the same rating against dust and that of liquids is that, Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX has a higher liquid rating than Nothing Ear 2

Both Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX and Nothing Ear 2 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
Nothing Ear 2 have Active Noise Cancellation 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.

Nothing Ear 2 driver unit is 11.6mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, the unit size determines the loudness of the device.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX driver unit is 9.2mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Nothing Ear 2 by 2.4mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
The Nothing Ear 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
Nothing Ear 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component produces high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
The Nothing Ear 2's battery life is 6 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
