Can I shower with IPX4? Wireless earbuds that come with IP rating from IPX1 to IPX4 are only resistant to water drops, water sprays, and water splash. Such earbuds can survive swears, water spray, and drops of water but cannot survive water from the showerhead.

Which is better IPX4 or IPX7? IPX4 is splash-resistant; IPX5 is resistant to a sustained low-pressure water spray; IPX6 means your earbuds can withstand a sustained high-pressure spray. An IPX7 or IPX8 rating means they can be submerged for 30 minutes and still survive — the only difference being that IPX8-rated buds can go a little deeper.
