IP ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by a casing, against solids and liquids. 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 protection against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the JBL Tune 230NC'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 JBL Tune 230NC, Soundpeats Mini Pro have a rating of IPX5 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, JBL Tune 230NC has a lower liquid rating than Soundpeats Mini Pro
