IP ratings refer to the rank of protection given by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Nuraphone NuraTrue'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 Nuraphone NuraTrue, Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro 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

Both Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro and Nuraphone NuraTrue have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.

The Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices make sound with equal bass
Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device produces high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this means that Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro can generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Nuraphone NuraTrue
