Ingress protection ratings refer to the level of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP54, the JBL Wave Beam'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 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.

Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
