IP ratings is the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value means protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the Marshall Minor III's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value 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, 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
The Marshall Minor III have a weight of 8g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to carry.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue, at 14.8g weigh more than the Marshall Minor III with a difference of 6.8g
True wireless devices have no cables linking any part of the device together, Marshall Minor III are true wireless for this case since they have no cables. This is an important difference since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the two earbuds .

Marshall Minor III are resistant to sweat
Nuraphone NuraTrue's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
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.
Both Nuraphone NuraTrue and Marshall Minor III have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of more advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 thus "diluting" the noise.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
Nuraphone NuraTrue sit tightly in place, this creates an acoustic covering that tones down your environment sounds and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out .
The Marshall Minor III driver unit is 12mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, its size determines the loudness of the earbuds.
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 , 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 yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
The Marshall Minor III's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices make sound with equal bass
Marshall Minor III's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device makes high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices generate equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level 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.
The Marshall Minor III's battery life is 5 hours, these last less than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Nuraphone NuraTrue'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 playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and Marshall Minor III's case has a charge of 25 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before recharging the case itself.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's charging case has a battery life of 18 hours, less than that of Marshall Minor III by 7 hours

Marshall Minor III have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Marshall Minor III
Nuraphone NuraTrue support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Nuraphone NuraTrue will work well with your MacBook. If you intend on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The Marshall Minor III support APTX HD, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It supports high-quality 24-bit audio (at a bit rate of 576kbps).
The Marshall Minor III have 2 microphones.
While the Nuraphone NuraTrue microphones are 2, equal to that of the Marshall Minor III . More microphones record better sound quality and help the earbuds to filter out background sounds.
