IP ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. 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 protection against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Sennheiser CX 500BT's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids 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 Sennheiser CX 500BT, Energy Sistem Sport 5 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids

Both Energy Sistem Sport 5 and Sennheiser CX 500BT have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
Sennheiser CX 500BT have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.
The Sennheiser CX 500BT sit tightly in place, this creates a sound seal that reduces your environment sounds and also prevents the device music from leaking out .
