Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value means protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Powerbeats Pro's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Powerbeats Pro, Jabra Evolve2 Buds have a rating of IP54 meaning 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 that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
The Powerbeats Pro have a weight of 20.3g . We prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
The Jabra Evolve2 Buds, at 10.8g are lighter than the Powerbeats Pro with a difference -9.5g
True wireless devices have no wires linking any part of the device together, Powerbeats Pro are true wireless for this matter since they have no wires. This is an important distinction since wireless earbuds have wires connecting the 2 earbuds together.

Powerbeats Pro 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.
Both Jabra Evolve2 Buds and Powerbeats Pro have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Jabra Evolve2 Buds have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.
Powerbeats Pro stay well in place, this creates an acoustic covering that reduces your environment sounds and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that they reduce ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
The Powerbeats Pro have a unit size of 12mm 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, its size dictates the sound made by the earbuds.
Jabra Evolve2 Buds driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Powerbeats Pro by 6mm , 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 deliver better quality sound.
Powerbeats Pro's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Jabra Evolve2 Buds's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Powerbeats Pro produce a juicier bass than the Jabra Evolve2 Buds
The Jabra Evolve2 Buds's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio device makes high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Powerbeats Pro's battery life is 9 hours, a device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Jabra Evolve2 Buds's battery life is more than that of Powerbeats Pro by 1 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.

Powerbeats Pro support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Powerbeats Pro will work fine with your iPad. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The Jabra Evolve2 Buds support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
The Powerbeats Pro have 2 microphones.
While the Jabra Evolve2 Buds microphones are 6, more than that of Powerbeats Pro by 4 . More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out noise.
