Ingress protection ratings refer to the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Marshall Minor III'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.
In comparison to the Marshall Minor III, OnePlus Buds Z2 have a rating of IP55 meaning 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 that of liquids is that, OnePlus Buds Z2 has a higher liquid rating than Marshall Minor III
