IP ratings is the rating of protection given by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX7, the JBL Endurance Peak 2's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 7 means that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.
The Sony WF 1000XM3 have a weight of 17g . We take in account a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to carry.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2, at 26g weigh more than the Sony WF 1000XM3 by of 9g
True wireless devices have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Sony WF 1000XM3 are true wireless for this case since they have no wires. This is a key difference as some wireless earbuds have wires connecting the 2 earbuds .
JBL Endurance Peak 2 also is true wireless because it has no wires connecting the pair of earbuds .
Sony WF 1000XM3 have wingtips, these are reserved for workout earbuds and come as an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a better fit.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 too have wingtips, these rest against the triangular fossa and form a secure fit to combat vigorous movement, wingtips come in handy for sports and other physical activities. If used rightly, they secure the earbuds from falling off.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 are resistant to sweat
An earbud foam is made to be ultracompact and lightweight, with almost no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The Sony WF 1000XM3 have an earbud foam for some people it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
Sony WF 1000XM3 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.
Both JBL Endurance Peak 2 and Sony WF 1000XM3 have stereo speakers
ANC uses more advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 thus "diluting" the noise.
Sony WF 1000XM3 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.
Sony WF 1000XM3 stay tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background sounds while preventing the earbuds voice audio from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that they reduce ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
The Sony WF 1000XM3 driver unit is 6mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the sound made by the earbuds.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Sony WF 1000XM3 by 4mm , 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 it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
Sony WF 1000XM3'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 on its way through.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The Sony WF 1000XM3's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio component produces high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, JBL Endurance Peak 2's measurement is 93dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Sony WF 1000XM3 have neodymium magnets, when used in audio devices 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, using high magnetic flux.
The Sony WF 1000XM3's battery life is 8 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.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery life is less than that of Sony WF 1000XM3 by 2 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the vendor, and Sony WF 1000XM3's case has a charge of 24 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
JBL Endurance Peak 2's charging case has a battery life of 24 hours, equal to that of the Sony WF 1000XM3
It requires 3.5 hours to fully charge the Sony WF 1000XM3's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been in storage for long periods.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 takes 2 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of Sony WF 1000XM3 by 1.5 hours
JBL Endurance Peak 2's battery capacity is 60mAh, battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
Sony WF 1000XM3 have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the device has a low battery. Its lights indicate the charging state of your earbuds and charging case.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators allow you to determine the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or having a low battery.
Sony WF 1000XM3 have USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 too have USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug comes along with most current electronics.
Sony WF 1000XM3 have Bluetooth version of 5, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data transfers between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 has a Bluetooth version of 5, equal to that of the Sony WF 1000XM3 . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The Sony WF 1000XM3 have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
JBL Endurance Peak 2 have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Sony WF 1000XM3
Sony WF 1000XM3 support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Sony WF 1000XM3 will work well with your iPhone. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The JBL Endurance Peak 2 support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
