IP ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX5, the Soundpeats Mini Pro's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, 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 Soundpeats Mini Pro, Sony LinkBuds S have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Soundpeats Mini Pro has a higher liquid rating than Sony LinkBuds S
Soundpeats Mini Pro have a weight of 9.94g . We take in account a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
Sony LinkBuds S, at 9.6g weigh less than the Soundpeats Mini Pro by -0.34g
True wireless devices have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Soundpeats Mini Pro are true wireless for this case since they don't have wires. This is an important distinction since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the 2 earbuds together.
Sony LinkBuds S also is true wireless because it has no wires connecting the pair of earbuds .
Soundpeats Mini Pro have sweat resistance
Sony LinkBuds S's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
The earbud foam is made to be ultracompact and lightweight, with little interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The Soundpeats Mini Pro have an earbud foam to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.

Both Sony LinkBuds S and Soundpeats Mini Pro have stereo speakers
ANC uses advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 thus "diluting" the noise.
Soundpeats Mini Pro have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.
Sony LinkBuds S too have ANC making either of the devices ideal for plane rides and morning commutes. The Soundpeats Mini Pro and Sony LinkBuds S operate with different noise cancellation types, pick the setting that you prefer for travel or that suites your relaxation time.

Soundpeats Mini Pro have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, its size determines the sound made by the earbuds.
Sony LinkBuds S driver unit is 5mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Soundpeats Mini Pro by 5mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
Sony LinkBuds S's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Sony LinkBuds S's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
Sony LinkBuds S 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, with the use of high magnetic flux.
Soundpeats Mini Pro's battery life is 7 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Sony LinkBuds S's battery life is less than that of Soundpeats Mini Pro by 1 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the vendor, and the Soundpeats Mini Pro's case is said to have a charge of 14 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.
