IP ratings is the level of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IP54, the Jabra Evolve2 Buds'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 can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
In comparison to the Jabra Evolve2 Buds, Jabra Elite 5 have a rating of IP55 meaning that they both have the same rating against dust and that of liquids is that, Jabra Evolve2 Buds has a lower liquid rating than Jabra Elite 5

Both Jabra Elite 5 and Jabra Evolve2 Buds have stereo speakers
ANC utilises advanced technology to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero thus "diluting" the noise.
