Ingress protection 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 of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IP55, the Jabra Elite 5's rating is read as, the first value of 5 denotes 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 number 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.

Jabra Elite 5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Jabra Elite 5's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
Jabra Elite 5's battery life is 9 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
