You want to enjoy your favorite music anywhere without worrying about weather or spills damaging your Bluetooth speaker. For the ultimate in portability and peace of mind, look for a wireless speaker with an IPX rating to determine how water resistant it really is.

IPX refers to the Ingress Protection rating which indicates the level of protection a product has against intrusion from things like dust, accidental contact and water. The IPX rating consists of the letters IP followed by two digits. The first digit indicates the level of protection against solid objects like dust. The second digit indicates how resistant the product is to liquids like rain or splashes.  

 

For Bluetooth speakers, the most important IPX rating to understand is the second digit referring to liquid protection. Here is a breakdown of the different IPX ratings and what they mean:

IPX0: No protection against water

IPX1: Protection against water droplets that fall vertically (e.g., rain)

IPX2: Protection against water droplets that fall at an angle (e.g., dripping from a faucet)

IPX3: Protection against spraying water (e.g., from a showerhead)

IPX4: Protection against splashing water (e.g., from a pool)

IPX5: Protection against water jets (e.g., from a garden hose)

IPX6: Protection against powerful water jets (e.g., from a pressure washer)

IPX7: Protection against immersion in water up to 1 meter deep for 30 minutes

IPX8: Protection against continuous immersion in water (depth specified by the manufacturer)

What IPX Rating Do You Need for Your Bluetooth Speaker?

When choosing a Bluetooth speaker for outdoor use, you want to make sure it has an IPX rating that is appropriate for your needs. For example, if you plan to use your speaker at the beach or by the pool, you'll want a speaker with an IPX4 or higher rating to protect against splashing water.

If you plan to use your speaker for water activities like kayaking or paddleboarding, you'll want a speaker with an IPX7 or higher rating to protect against immersion in water.
