Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP55, the Jabra Elite 5'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 5 means that they can withstand medium pressure jet that's 6.3mm diameter, similar to garden hose from any angle for 3 minutes at a distance of 2.5 to 3 metres.
In comparison to the Jabra Elite 5, JBL Live Pro 2 have a rating of IPX5 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
