IP ratings refer to the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say dust, while the second 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.
In comparison to the Nuraphone NuraTrue, JBL Reflect Aero TWS have a rating of IP68 meaning that they are completely dust proof and that of liquids is that, JBL Reflect Aero TWS has a higher liquid rating than Nuraphone NuraTrue

The JBL Reflect Aero TWS are both dustproof and water-resistant.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both JBL Reflect Aero TWS and Nuraphone NuraTrue have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS too have ANC which makes either of the devices ideal for flights and rush hour travels. Each work with different noise cancellation modes, pick the setting that suits your commute or that suites your chill time.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue sit well in place, this creates an acoustic seal that tones down your environment noise while preventing the earbuds sound from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this implies that they limit ambient noise instead of actively 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 device, its size corellates with the loudness of the device.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS driver unit is 6.8mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 3.2mm , a common assumption 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.
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.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices make sound with equal bass
The Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device makes high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal treble
The sound pressure level, 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.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's sound pressure level measurement is 99dB/mW. How loud a device is can be perceived differently by different persons, so we need to have the means to get a standard measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
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 have to charge the device less often.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS's battery life is more than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 2 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 no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and the Nuraphone NuraTrue's case has a charge of 18 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.

Nuraphone NuraTrue have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Nuraphone NuraTrue
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 fine with your iPad. If you are planning on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
