IP ratings is the level of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
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.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have a weight of 14.8g . We prefer a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are easier to carry.
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Nuraphone NuraTrue are true wireless for this case since they don't have cables. This is a major distinction as some wireless earbuds have wires connecting the pair of earbuds together.
JBL Tour Pro 2 also is true wireless since it has no cables linking the two earbuds together.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have sweat resistance
JBL Tour Pro 2's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, 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, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The JBL Tour Pro 2 also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
The JBL Tour Pro 2 too have ANC making both devices ideal for plane rides and morning travels. The Nuraphone NuraTrue and JBL Tour Pro 2 work with different noise cancellation settings, pick the noise cancellation type that suits your travel or that enhances your relaxation time.
Nuraphone NuraTrue stay tightly in place, this creates an acoustic seal that tones down your environment noise well as preventing the device voice audio from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both tone down ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
Nuraphone NuraTrue driver unit is 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size dictates the loudness of the device.
JBL Tour Pro 2 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making both JBL Tour Pro 2, and Nuraphone NuraTrue similar in how loud their sound gets , 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 yes, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component produces low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Tour Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
The Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Tour Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that both devices generate 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 for a single charge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
JBL Tour Pro 2's battery life is more than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 4 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, 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 full charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
JBL Tour Pro 2's charging case has a battery life of 30 hours, more than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 12 hours
It requires 2 hours to fully charge the Nuraphone NuraTrue's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for long periods.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the device has a low battery. Its lights show the charging state of your device and charging case.
JBL Tour Pro 2 too have a battery level indicator, these allow you determine the charging state of your earbuds, if charged fully, or the battery is running low.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue use USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power in a single cable.
JBL Tour Pro 2 too use USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug is part and parcel of most current laptops, phones, and tablets.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue have Bluetooth version of 5, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data movement between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
JBL Tour Pro 2 has a Bluetooth version of 5.3, newer than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
JBL Tour Pro 2 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. 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 well with your MacBook. If you are planning 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 JBL Tour Pro 2 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.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have 2 microphones.
JBL Tour Pro 2 microphones are 6, more than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 4 . More microphones record better sound quality and enable the device to filter out noise.
JBL Tour Pro 2 use a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are intended to reduce background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient noises so that they can still be heard even while wearing the earbuds
