True Wireless - Waterproof Rating
Is my product waterproof?
What does IP mean?
Can I shower with my earbuds?
IP stands for "Ingress Protection" and is the International Protection Marking per IEC standard 60529. The most common use of an IP rating is how protected a product is from a solid or liquid entering that product.
Following the letters "IP" are typically 2 digits which indicate the level of protection of the product. The first digit indicates the level of protection a product has from a solid - i.e. a finger, screwdriver, or even dust. The second digit indicates the level of protection a product has from liquid intrusion in certain volumes, pressures, or temperature.
The T5 II, and the T5 II Sport headphones carry an IP67 rating. This means they are dust tight, and no ingress of dust will enter the buds. It also means the buds will have protection against the effects of immersion in water between 1cm and 1m for up to 30 minutes.
However, the T5 II ANC and T5 Gen 1 model only has a rating of IPX4. This means they have not been tested for protection against solids, but will be protected against water splashed from all directions.
Check the product's specification sheet (located on the Klipsch.com product page) if you are unsure the IP rating.
