IP ratings is the rating of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X'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 Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X, Powerbeats Pro have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids

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 produce better quality sound.
The Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Powerbeats Pro's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, this implies that Powerbeats Pro can make sound with a juicier bass than the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X'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 while at it.
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's measurement is 91dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Razer Hammerhead True Wireless X's battery life is 7 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
