Music is the only thing that keeps us company while traveling, making the journey freer. At the same time, Music enabling gadgets allow us to experience the absolute sound without any reservations. A significant fear of every audiophile is getting their electronic devices drenching in water from rain, sweat, dropping in the pool, or anywhere else has been consistent.

Technological advancements have led to a wave where the fear of damaging electronic devices is now fading away. With regards to avoiding the damage from water, products are given an IPX rating which ensures that your device is water-resistant. But before going deeper into the context of IPX rating, it is important to first understand what IP stands for.

IP stands for Ingress Protection and also referred to as international protection. IPX rating is the marking that describes the level of protection against water, dust, etc.

The level of protection against ingress of solid particles or objects is described by the first digit number/letter. If there isn’t any info regarding the level of protection against ingress of solid particles than you will see X letter mentioned on the product which shows that it is a water-resistant device. While, if the product doesn’t offer any protection, the first symbol must be 0.

There are various levels of protection from 0 to 8 against the ingress of solid particles. If the first number after IP is 5, then the device is protected from minor splashes of water. While the first number after IP is 7, this indicates its complete protection from water submersion up to 1 meter of depth.
