IP ratings is the rating of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX7, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's battery life is 8 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
