IP ratings is the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents 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 number 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 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, they both have the same rating against liquids
The Sony WF C500 have a weight of 10.8g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to carry.
For a device to be true wireless it should have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Urbanista Copenhagen are true wireless for this matter since they don't have cables. This is an important distinction since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the 2 earbuds .
Sony WF C500 also is true wireless since it has no cables linking the two earbuds together.
Urbanista Copenhagen are resistant to sweat
Sony WF C500's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use during long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc

The Urbanista Copenhagen driver unit is 12mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines the loudness of the earbuds.
Sony WF C500 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Urbanista Copenhagen by 6.2mm , 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 it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Urbanista Copenhagen's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Sony WF C500's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can make sound with equal bass
The Urbanista Copenhagen's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
Sony WF C500's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, Urbanista Copenhagen's measurement is 115dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Sony WF C500 have neodymium magnets, if 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, with the use of high magnetic flux.
The Urbanista Copenhagen's battery life is 8 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 requires fewer chargings.
