Waterproof VS Water Resistant
Most people are still puzzled about waterproof and water resistance. They have no idea about what is the difference between waterproof vs Water resistance. If they saw waterproof on the box of anything they started to dip it into the water for testing and it got damaged.
Waterproof means that the product can be able to or have the capability to survive inside water for a long period. Watches and Mobiles can be waterproof but Airpods are not because of minute holes for passing air from outside.
Water resistance means that the product inside the box can survive a level of moisture or drops of water for a tenure of time. If it is dipped in water it may damage. That means you need to keep it out from the reach of water and moisture.
Most cheap and standard airports aren’t water-resistant all because of cheap quality and low price. But when it comes to AirPods Pro, they provide you with the specification of Water-resistance with the rating of IPx4. That only prevents them from a little splash of rain and sweat.
Hence, Airpods pro will not stay water-resistant over time because the water-resistance seals degrade from time to time and there comes a time when they also get damaged from water. You should prevent them from getting in contact with water but don’t worry! They still survive an odd splash of water.
