IP ratings refer to the rank of protection given by a casing, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring 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 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, Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 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
The Nuraphone NuraTrue have a weight of 14.8g . We prefer a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to transport.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3, at 10.6g weigh less than the Nuraphone NuraTrue with a difference -4.2g

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
Nuraphone NuraTrue have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 and Nuraphone NuraTrue have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 too have Active Noise Cancellation making both earbuds ideal for flights and rush hour travels. The Nuraphone NuraTrue and Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 operate with different noise cancellation modes, pick the setting that you prefer for commute or that enhances your relaxation time.
Nuraphone NuraTrue sit well in place, creating a sound seal that tones down background sounds while preventing the earbuds sound from leaking out at the same.
Both Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3, and Nuraphone NuraTrue have passive noise reduction which implies that both tone down ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the sound made by the earbuds.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 driver unit is 7mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 3mm , 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 imply that they produce better quality sound.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, this implies that Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 can make sound with a juicier bass than the Nuraphone NuraTrue
The Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device produces high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's highest frequency is at 21,000Hz, this implies that Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Nuraphone NuraTrue
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.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's sound pressure level measurement is 107dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be perceived differently by different people, so we need to have the means to get an objective 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 for a single charge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's battery life is more than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 1 hours . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing 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 vendor, and the Nuraphone NuraTrue's case is said to have a charge of 18 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's charging case has a battery life of 21 hours, more than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 3 hours
