IP ratings is the level of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IP57, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's rating for solids indicates that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety, and the second value of 7 means that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.

Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
