IP ratings is the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IP55, the Skullcandy Indy Fuel's rating is read as, the first number of 5 denotes 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 the second number of 5 means that they can withstand medium pressure jet that's 6.3mm diameter, similar to garden hose from any angle for 3 minutes at a distance of 2.5 to 3 metres.
In comparison to the Skullcandy Indy Fuel, Beats Fit Pro have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, Skullcandy Indy Fuel has a higher liquid rating than Beats Fit Pro

The Beats Fit Pro also have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Beats Fit Pro have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel sit well in place, this creates a sound covering that tones down your environment sounds and also prevents the earbuds sound from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both tone down ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The Skullcandy Indy Fuel have a unit size of 6mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, its size dictates the loudness of the earbuds.
Beats Fit Pro driver unit is 9.5mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Skullcandy Indy Fuel by 3.5mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
The Skullcandy Indy Fuel's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Beats Fit Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
The Skullcandy Indy Fuel's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
Beats Fit Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, in decibels, dB, Skullcandy Indy Fuel's measurement is 105dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Beats Fit Pro's sound pressure level measurement is 101.3dB/mW. How loud something is can be perceived differently by separate people, so we need to have a way of getting an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The Beats Fit Pro have neodymium magnets, if used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, with the use of high magnetic flux.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's battery life is 3 hours, these last less than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge.
