Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given 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 protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX2, the Samsung Galaxy Buds FE's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 2 means that they are protected against drops falling when tilted at 15° in 4 fixed positions.
Compared to the Samsung Galaxy Buds FE, Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW has a higher liquid rating than Samsung Galaxy Buds FE
Samsung Galaxy Buds FE have a weight of 130.41g . We prefer a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW, at 16g are lighter than the Samsung Galaxy Buds FE with a difference -114.41g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Samsung Galaxy Buds FE are true wireless for this matter since they don't have cables. This is a key difference since wireless earbuds have wires linking the two earbuds .

Samsung Galaxy Buds FE 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.
The Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW also have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and after inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 thus "diluting" the noise.
Samsung Galaxy Buds FE have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds FE driver unit is 12mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size corellates with the loudness of the device.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW driver unit is 9mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Samsung Galaxy Buds FE by 3mm , 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 yes, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds FE's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW make sound with a juicier bass than the Samsung Galaxy Buds FE
The Samsung Galaxy Buds FE's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices can generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's measurement is 110dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Samsung Galaxy Buds FE's battery life is 6 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's battery life is more than that of Samsung Galaxy Buds FE by 14 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and Samsung Galaxy Buds FE's case has a charge of 24 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
Audio Technica ATH CKS50TW's charging case has a battery life of 30 hours, more than that of Samsung Galaxy Buds FE by 6 hours
