IP ratings refer to the level of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP54, the Nothing Ear 2'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.
Compared to the Nothing Ear 2, Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro 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
