Ingress protection ratings is the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance 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 of liquids 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, Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro 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 Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro and Nuraphone NuraTrue have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero hence "diluting" the noise.
Nuraphone NuraTrue have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.

Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Nuraphone NuraTrue by 1mm , 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 it's true that, 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 measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component produces high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
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.
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 usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
