IP ratings is the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP55, the Skullcandy Indy Fuel's rating for solids indicates 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 of liquids 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, Energy Sistem Sport 5 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, Energy Sistem Sport 5 has a lower liquid rating than Skullcandy Indy Fuel

Skullcandy Indy Fuel have a unit size of 6mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, its size determines the loudness of the earbuds.
Energy Sistem Sport 5 driver unit is 14mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Skullcandy Indy Fuel by 8mm , as many tend to believe 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 imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio device generates high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, measured 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.
The Energy Sistem Sport 5 have neodymium magnets, if used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help produce music at quite a high SPL, with the use of high magnetic flux.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's battery life is 3 hours, a device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's battery life is more than that of Skullcandy Indy Fuel by 2 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and Skullcandy Indy Fuel's case is said to have a charge of 27 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before recharging the case itself.
Energy Sistem Sport 5's charging case has a battery life of 20 hours, less than that of Skullcandy Indy Fuel by 7 hours
It takes 0.3 hours to fully charge the Skullcandy Indy Fuel's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for extended periods.
Energy Sistem Sport 5 takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of Skullcandy Indy Fuel by 1.2 hours
Energy Sistem Sport 5's battery power is 40mAh, battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can keep.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the earbuds, you simply put down on a compatible charging pad.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the earbuds has a low battery. The battery indicator lights show the charging state of your earbuds and charging case.
