The glasses for IMAX Digital 3D are larger to accommodate for the larger screens while the RealD 3D are just the standard size of 3D glasses.
The audio in the IMAX 3D is uncompressed and therefore seems to be of a better quality as opposed to RealD 3D whose specifications on sound are not standard but vary by theatre.
What is difference between IMAX and 3d?
There are some subtle differences between IMAX 3D and normal 3D though both are basically the same. An IMAX screen is bigger and curved, so that the image really fills your field of vision. An IMAX screen is usually about 5 stories high! Digital 3D is on a regular sized movie screen.

Why is IMAX 3d better?
Imax Digital 3D is an evolutionary improvement of analog Imax 3D theaters that have been around since 1986. Unlike RealD, Imax 3D movies are less tolerant of head movements. Viewers have to avoid tilting their heads, though some turning–probably unavoidable due to the massive Imax screen format–is possible.
Do you need special glasses for Imax 3d?
