The Sony WF 1000XM4 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 then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.

Nuraphone NuraTrue driver unit is 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, its size determines the loudness of the device.
Sony WF 1000XM4 driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 4mm , 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 mean that they produce better quality sound.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Sony WF 1000XM4'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 device makes high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
Sony WF 1000XM4's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this means that Sony WF 1000XM4 can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Nuraphone NuraTrue
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure 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.
Sony WF 1000XM4 have neodymium magnets, if used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help produce music at quite a high SPL, with the use of high magnetic flux.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's battery life is 6 hours, 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.
Sony WF 1000XM4's battery life is more than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 2 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely 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 manufacturer, and Nuraphone NuraTrue's case is said to have a full 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.
