Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IP57, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's rating for solids indicates that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety, and of liquids that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.
In comparison to the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX, Nuraphone NuraTrue have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX has a higher liquid rating than Nuraphone NuraTrue

Both Nuraphone NuraTrue and Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and after inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.

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 deliver better quality sound.
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal bass
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Nuraphone NuraTrue's measurement is 108dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
