IP ratings is the rank of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value means protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the Urbanista Copenhagen's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
In comparison to the Urbanista Copenhagen, Sony WF 1000XM4 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
The Sony WF 1000XM4 have a weight of 41g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.

Both Sony WF 1000XM4 and Urbanista Copenhagen have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero thus "diluting" the noise.
The Sony WF 1000XM4 have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.

However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
The Urbanista Copenhagen's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Sony WF 1000XM4's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
The Urbanista Copenhagen's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Sony WF 1000XM4's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this implies that Sony WF 1000XM4 produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Urbanista Copenhagen
