IP ratings refer to the rank of protection given by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of 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 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 Nuraphone NuraTrue, Jabra Elite 5 have a rating of IP55 meaning 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 that of liquids is that, Nuraphone NuraTrue has a lower liquid rating than Jabra Elite 5
The Nuraphone NuraTrue have a weight of 14.8g . We prefer a lower weight better because lighter devices are easier to move with.
The Jabra Elite 5, at 10g weigh less than the Nuraphone NuraTrue with a difference -4.8g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables linking any part of the device together, Nuraphone NuraTrue are true wireless for this case since they don't have wires. This is a key difference since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the 2 earbuds .
Jabra Elite 5 also is true wireless because it has no wires linking the two earbuds .

The Jabra Elite 5 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 which results 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 sounds.
Jabra Elite 5 too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes either of the devices ideal for plane rides and morning travels. Each work with different noise cancellation types, pick the noise cancellation type that you prefer for travel or that suites your relaxation time.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue sit tightly in place, this creates an acoustic seal that reduces background sounds while preventing the earbuds voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this implies that both tone down ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
Nuraphone NuraTrue driver unit is 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, its size determines the sound produced by the earbuds.
Jabra Elite 5 driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 4mm , 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 yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Jabra Elite 5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices make sound with equal bass
The Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Jabra Elite 5's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
The sound pressure level, 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.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue's battery life is 6 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. 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.
Jabra Elite 5's battery life is more than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 3 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and Nuraphone NuraTrue's case has a charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before recharging the case itself.

Nuraphone NuraTrue support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Nuraphone NuraTrue will work fine with your MacBook. If you are planning on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
