Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Audio Technica ATH TWX9'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 Audio Technica ATH TWX9, Nothing Ear 1 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 Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have a unit size of 5.8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size dictates the loudness of the device.
Nothing Ear 1 driver unit is 11.6mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Audio Technica ATH TWX9 by 5.8mm , 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 yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Nothing Ear 1's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal bass
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio component produces high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Nothing Ear 1's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH TWX9 generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Nothing Ear 1
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Audio Technica ATH TWX9's measurement is 102dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's battery life is 6 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.
Nothing Ear 1's battery life is less than that of Audio Technica ATH TWX9 by 1 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the manufacturer, and Audio Technica ATH TWX9's case has a charge of 18.5 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
Nothing Ear 1's charging case has a battery life of 29 hours, more than that of Audio Technica ATH TWX9 by 10.5 hours
It takes 2.5 hours to fully charge the Audio Technica ATH TWX9's battery. It is recommended to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
