Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Beats Studio Buds's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Beats Studio Buds, OnePlus Buds Z2 have a rating of IP55 meaning 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 that of liquids is that, Beats Studio Buds has a lower liquid rating than OnePlus Buds Z2

ANC makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out.
