Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by a casing, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, 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 Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed, Nothing Ear 2 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

Nothing Ear 2 driver unit is 11.6mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed by 1.6mm , 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 yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Nothing Ear 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component produces high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Nothing Ear 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices can generate equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, in decibels, dB, Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's measurement is 95dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Razer Hammerhead Pro HyperSpeed's battery life is 6.5 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
