Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value refers to protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP54, the Jabra Evolve2 Buds'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 of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Jabra Evolve2 Buds, Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
