IP ratings refer to the rating of protection given by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of 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 of liquids that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.
In comparison to the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX, Urbanista Copenhagen have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, Urbanista Copenhagen has a lower liquid rating than Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX
