IP ratings refer to the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
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 the second number of 4 means 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, Sony WF C500 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
Nuraphone NuraTrue have a weight of 14.8g . We prefer a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
Sony WF C500, at 10.8g are lighter than the Nuraphone NuraTrue with a difference -4g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no wires linking any part of the device together, Nuraphone NuraTrue are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is a major difference since wireless earbuds have cables linking the two earbuds together.
Sony WF C500 also is true wireless because it doesn't have cables connecting the two earbuds .
Nuraphone NuraTrue have sweat resistance
Sony WF C500'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, what this means is that Nuraphone NuraTrue's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Sony WF C500 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced technology to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue have ANC 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 outcompete background sounds.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue sit well in place, creating a sound seal that reduces your environment sounds and also prevents the device sound from leaking out .
Both Sony WF C500, and Nuraphone NuraTrue have passive noise reduction this means that both reduce 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 produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size corellates with the sound produced by the earbuds.
Sony WF C500 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 4.2mm , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Sony WF C500's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices can produce equal bass
Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Sony WF C500's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level 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 Sony WF C500 have neodymium magnets, when used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, using high magnetic flux.
The 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 C500's battery life is more than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 4 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing 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 the Nuraphone NuraTrue's case is said to have a full charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
Sony WF C500's charging case has a battery life of 10 hours, less than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 8 hours
It requires 2 hours to fully charge the Nuraphone NuraTrue's battery. It is recommended to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds when they have been in storage for extended periods.
Sony WF C500 takes 2.5 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 0.5 hours
The Nuraphone NuraTrue have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights indicate the charging status of your earbuds and case.
Sony WF C500 too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators enable you determine the charging state of your device, whether fully charged, or the battery is running low.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue support USB TYPE-C, an industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
Sony WF C500 too support 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 enables data movement between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Sony WF C500 has a Bluetooth version of 5, equal to that of the Nuraphone NuraTrue . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
Sony WF C500 have a maximum range of 9meters, less than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 1meters
Nuraphone NuraTrue support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since 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 fine with your iPhone. 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 Sony WF C500 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.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue have 2 microphones.
The Sony WF C500 microphones are 2, equal to that of the Nuraphone NuraTrue . More microphones record better sound quality and help the earbuds to filter out noise.
Nuraphone NuraTrue support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to channel ambient sound so that they can still be heard even while wearing them
The Nuraphone NuraTrue support in/on-ear detection, the sensors in the earbuds can detect when they are removed from your ears so that the music is paused.
Nuraphone NuraTrue support fast charging. Usually, technologies like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, are used to lower the amount of time it takes to fully charge the earbuds.
Sony WF C500 support fast charging. This kind is similar to regular charging, just that the battery is filling up much faster. For example, with Quick Charge 3.0, the battery is charged to 50% in 30 minutes.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have a mute function, they have the option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the earbuds.
The Sony WF C500 also have this function. The mute function means that you unilaterally turn off the device's microphone, but still hear the other party's voice.
