IP ratings refer to the level of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Powerbeats Pro's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes 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, Mpow Flame S have a rating of IPX7 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Mpow Flame S has a higher liquid rating than Powerbeats Pro
Powerbeats Pro have a weight of 20.3g . We consider a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables linking any part of the device together, Powerbeats Pro are true wireless for this case since they have no wires. This is a major difference since wireless earbuds have wires linking the 2 earbuds together.
The Powerbeats Pro come with wingtips, these are reserved for earbuds for workouts and come as an optional add-on to each silicone ear tip for a more secure fit.
Mpow Flame S too have wingtips, by resting against the triangular fossa and form a secure fit to match vigorous movement, wingtips come in handy for sports and other physical activities. When applied as directed, they secure the earbuds from falling off.
Powerbeats Pro have sweat resistance
Mpow Flame S's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
Powerbeats Pro are both dustproof and water-resistant.
Powerbeats Pro have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Mpow Flame S also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it listens to 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 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Mpow Flame S have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
Powerbeats Pro stay tightly in place, creating a sound seal that tones down background noise and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this implies that they reduce ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
The Powerbeats Pro have a unit size of 12mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass. A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the sound produced by the earbuds.
The Powerbeats Pro's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
The Powerbeats Pro's battery life is 9 hours, a device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Mpow Flame S's battery life is more than that of Powerbeats Pro by 3 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and the Powerbeats Pro's case is said to have a charge of 24 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
It takes 0.7 hours to fully charge the Powerbeats Pro's battery. It is highly adivsable to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for long periods.
The Powerbeats Pro have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the earbuds has a low battery. Its lights show the charging status of your device and case.
Mpow Flame S too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators enable you to determine the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or the battery is running low.
Powerbeats Pro have Bluetooth version of 5, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data transfers between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Mpow Flame S has a Bluetooth version of 5, equal to that of the Powerbeats Pro . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The Powerbeats Pro have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Mpow Flame S have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Powerbeats Pro
Powerbeats Pro support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since 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 MacBook. 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 Mpow Flame S 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 Mpow Flame S support LDAC, a codec developed by Sony which allows streaming high-resolution audio over Bluetooth connections at up to 990 kbps at 32 bit/96 kHz. It can reach a high bitrate of 990kbps, providing high-resolution audio.
Mpow Flame S support APTX Adaptive, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It has a variable bit rate (between 279kbps and 420kbps).
Mpow Flame S support APTX Low Latency, a codec developed by Qualcomm. It uses Bluetooth 5.0 technology to provide low latency audio (around 40ms), which is useful when you want to avoid audio lag for example when playing games.
The Mpow Flame S support APTX HD, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It supports high-quality 24-bit audio (at a bit rate of 576kbps).
The Powerbeats Pro have 2 microphones.
Mpow Flame S use a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are intended to filter out background sounds from the desired sound.
Mpow Flame S support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient noises so that they can still be heard even when wearing them
The Mpow Flame S support in/on-ear detection, the sensors in the device can detect when they are removed from your ears .
When misplaced in a room, or can't be found in your bag, Mpow Flame S have a find earbuds feature.
The Powerbeats Pro support fast charging. Commonly, technologies like MediaTek’s Pump Express, are used to reduce the amount of time it takes to charge the earbuds.
Also the Mpow Flame S support fast charging. It's very similar to regular charging, just that the battery fills up much faster. For example, with Quick Charge 3.0, the battery is charged to 50% in 30 minutes.
The Mpow Flame S have a mute function, they have the feature to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
With the Powerbeats Pro, so you can access the volume control, pause, play, mute, etc whichever features are supported on the device.
The Mpow Flame S also have a control panel on them.
The Mpow Flame S have voice prompts. Automatically receive information through audio messages, like if there is an issue with the connection.
Powerbeats Pro come with a special pouch. Carrying earphones openly, or putting them inside your bag without a casing may easily damage them.
Mpow Flame S also have a travel bag included, which offers safe transportation.
