IP ratings is the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of 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 of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Marshall Minor III, Nuraphone NuraTrue 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 a weight of 8g . We prefer a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
Nuraphone NuraTrue, at 14.8g are heavier than the Marshall Minor III with a difference of 6.8g

Marshall Minor III have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.

Nuraphone NuraTrue driver unit is 10mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Marshall Minor III by 2mm , many people have a misconception 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 are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
The Marshall Minor III's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal bass
Marshall Minor III's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices 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.
