More importantly, there’s still support for Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). However, there’s no mention of the 48dB exclusion rating of their Pro siblings. It is also IP54 dust and water-resistant, so sweat or splashes of water will not harm the buds. On the other hand, the case has a “space capsule” design. It is IPX4 rated against water resistance.
