Ingress protection ratings is the rank of protection offered by a casing, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Nuraphone NuraTrue'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.
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
Nuraphone NuraTrue have a weight of 14.8g . We consider a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to transport.
The Jabra Elite 5, at 10g weigh less than the Nuraphone NuraTrue with a difference -4.8g
True wireless devices have no wires 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 as some wireless earbuds have wires linking the 2 earbuds .
Jabra Elite 5 also is true wireless because it has no cables connecting the pair of earbuds .
Nuraphone NuraTrue are resistant to sweat
Jabra Elite 5's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
Nuraphone NuraTrue have stereo speakers, what this means is that Nuraphone NuraTrue's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Jabra Elite 5 and Nuraphone NuraTrue have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of advanced technology to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.
The Jabra Elite 5 too have Active Noise Cancellation making either of the devices ideal for plane rides and rush hour travels. Each work with different noise cancellation modes, pick the mode that you prefer for commute or that suites your relaxation time.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue stay well in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background noise well as preventing the earbuds music from leaking out .
Both Jabra Elite 5, and Nuraphone NuraTrue have passive noise reduction this implies that both reduce ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
The 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, the unit size dictates the sound made by the device.
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 , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Jabra Elite 5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Jabra Elite 5's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, 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 usually 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 device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not 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 vendor, and Nuraphone NuraTrue's case has a charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
Jabra Elite 5's charging case has a battery life of 27 hours, more than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 9 hours

Nuraphone NuraTrue support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides 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 iPad. 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 Jabra Elite 5 support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
