IP ratings refer to the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. 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 protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Marshall Minor III's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 4 means 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 Marshall Minor III, Audio Technica ATH TWX9 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

Marshall Minor III have stereo speakers, what this means is that Marshall Minor III's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Audio Technica ATH TWX9 and Marshall Minor III have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9 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 noise.
The Audio Technica ATH TWX9 sit tightly in place, creating a sound seal that reduces your environment sounds and also prevents the device voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Marshall Minor III driver unit is 12mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device, its size determines the sound made by the earbuds.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Marshall Minor III by 6.2mm , a common assumption 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 are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
Marshall Minor III's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
The Marshall Minor III's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component generates high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, this implies that Audio Technica ATH TWX9 generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Marshall Minor III
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, 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.
Marshall Minor III's battery life is 5 hours, these last less than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's battery life is more than that of Marshall Minor III by 1 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and Marshall Minor III's case has a full charge of 25 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9's charging case has a battery life of 18.5 hours, less than that of Marshall Minor III by 6.5 hours
