IP ratings refer to the level of protection offered by a casing, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX5, the Soundpeats Mini Pro's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, 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.
Compared to the Soundpeats Mini Pro, Sony WF C500 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Sony WF C500 has a lower liquid rating than Soundpeats Mini Pro
The Soundpeats Mini Pro have a weight of 9.94g . We take in account a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to move with.
Sony WF C500, at 10.8g are heavier than the Soundpeats Mini Pro with a difference of 0.86g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Soundpeats Mini Pro are true wireless for this case since they have no wires. This is an important difference as some wireless earbuds have cables linking the two earbuds together.
Sony WF C500 also is true wireless because it has no wires linking the two earbuds .
Soundpeats Mini Pro have sweat resistance
Sony WF C500's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
The earbud foam is made to be ultracompact and lightweight, with almost no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The Soundpeats Mini Pro have an earbud foam for some people it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
Soundpeats Mini Pro have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Sony WF C500 and Soundpeats Mini Pro have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero thus "diluting" the noise.
The Soundpeats Mini Pro have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
The Soundpeats Mini Pro sit tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal that tones down background noise while preventing the earbuds voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both Sony WF C500, and Soundpeats Mini Pro have passive noise reduction which means that both reduce ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The Soundpeats Mini Pro have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the earbuds.
Sony WF C500 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Soundpeats Mini Pro by 4.2mm , 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 produce better quality sound.
The Sony WF C500's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
The Sony WF C500's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component generates high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
The Sony WF C500 have neodymium magnets, when 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, using 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 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.
Sony WF C500's battery life is more than that of Soundpeats Mini Pro by 3 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and the Soundpeats Mini Pro's case has a full charge of 14 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
Sony WF C500's charging case has a battery life of 10 hours, less than that of Soundpeats Mini Pro by 4 hours
It takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the Soundpeats Mini Pro's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for long periods.
Sony WF C500 takes 2.5 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of Soundpeats Mini Pro by 1 hours
Soundpeats Mini Pro's battery power is 45mAh, battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
Soundpeats Mini Pro have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the device has a low battery. Its lights display the charging state of your earbuds and charging case.
Sony WF C500 too have a battery level indicator, these allow you to tell the charging state of your device, if charged fully, or the battery is running low.
Soundpeats Mini Pro have USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
Sony WF C500 too support USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug comes along with most current laptops, phones, and tablets.
The Soundpeats Mini Pro have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Sony WF C500 has a Bluetooth version of 5, older than that of Soundpeats Mini Pro . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Soundpeats Mini Pro have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
Sony WF C500 have a maximum range of 9meters, less than that of Soundpeats Mini Pro by 1meters
Soundpeats Mini Pro support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Soundpeats Mini Pro will work well with your MacBook. If you intend 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 Sony WF C500 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.
Soundpeats Mini Pro support APTX Adaptive, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It has a variable bit rate (between 279kbps and 420kbps).
Latency refers to the time it takes for the audio signal to be transmitted to your earbuds. Soundpeats Mini Pro have a latency of 60ms, a lower latency reduces audio lag and is particularly important when playing games or watching videos.
