How much do you know IPX level of Bluetooth headphones


  When you buy Bluetooth headphones, you will see some of the product's parameters which indicate the waterproof level IPX4 or IPX7, etc. For these parameters, how much do you understand? Here, let us Guangqing Electronics show you how to read these datas.

   IP means Ingress Protection. The IP level is for external protection of electrical equipment enclosures. It comes from the International Electrotechnical Commission's IEC 60529 standard. In this standard, the IP level format is IPXX, where XX is Two Arabic numerals, the first marked number indicates the dustproof level, and the second marked number indicates the waterproof level.

Let's have a look at the table of the specific waterproof level.

NumberProtection range
0No special protection against water or moisture
1Vertically dropping water will not cause damage to the devices
2When the device is tilted by 15°, vertically dropping water will not cause damage to the devices
3When the device is tilted by 60°, vertically dropping water will not cause damage to the devices
4Prevents water droplets splashing in all directions from entering the device and causing damage
5Prevents water injected in all directions from entering the device and causing damage
6Prevents the intrusion of large waves and eliminates the harmful effects of strong jets in all directions
7When the equipment is immersed in water, where its top is  0.15 to 1 meter away from the water surface, keep it staying for 30 minutes. Its performance will be not affected and and no water will get into it.
8When the equipment is immersed in water, where its top is  0.15 to 30 meter away from the water surface, keep it staying for 30 minutes. Its performance will be not affected and and no water will get into it.


It is obvious that bigger number, better waterproof.


                                   IPX1: Not waterproof

                                   IPX2: Not completely waterproof, poor waterproof performance

                                   IPX3: not completely waterproof, so-so waterproof performance

                                   IPX4: not completely waterproof, so-so waterproof performance

                                   IPX5: not completely waterproof, not bad waterproof performance 

                                   IPX6: Incomplete waterproof, good waterproof performance

                                   IPX7: not completely waterproof, waterproof performance is very good

                                   IPX8: completely waterproof

  You can see that even if the product is marked with IPX waterproof rating, as long as it is not IPX7 or IPX8, then it is not completely waterproof.  Therefore, when using a general Bluetooth headset in a  environment with water, you should pay more attention to your headphones. Especially after the exercise, if you do not wipe it in time, the sweat will easily enter the headphones and affect the performance of the headset. Even if it is sweatproof headphones, you should wipe it after use to ensure that the headset is dry. This can also extend the life of the headset.
