Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection 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, Nothing Ear 1 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 Nothing Ear 1 and Nuraphone NuraTrue have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.

The Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Nothing Ear 1's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
The Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component makes high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Nothing Ear 1's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level 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.
