Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX3, the Ultimate Ears UE Fits's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 3 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at up to 60° from vertical position for ten minutes.

ANC utilises more advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to counter it.
