IP ratings refer to the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance 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, LG Tone Free Fit TF8 have a rating of IP67 meaning that LG Tone Free Fit TF8 has a higher dust resistance than Nothing Ear 2 and that of liquids is that, LG Tone Free Fit TF8 has a higher liquid rating than Nothing Ear 2

Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
The Nothing Ear 2 have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.

However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
Nothing Ear 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
LG Tone Free Fit TF8's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
Nothing Ear 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
