Is JLab Go Air water proof?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

The JLab GO Air earbuds are not completely waterproof, but they do have an IPX4 water resistance rating. This means that they are protected against splashing water from any direction, making them suitable for use in light rain or during workouts where you may sweat.

However, it’s important to note that the IPX4 rating does not guarantee protection against submersion in water. So, while you can confidently use the GO Air earbuds in damp conditions, you should avoid fully submerging them in water.

To ensure the longevity of your earbuds, it’s recommended to wipe them clean and dry them properly before placing them back in the charging case. This will help prevent any moisture buildup that could potentially damage the internal components.

It’s also worth mentioning that the charging case for the GO Air earbuds is not water-resistant. Therefore, if you find yourself caught in heavy rain or any situation where the case may be exposed to water, it’s best to pocket it or find a way to protect it from getting wet.

In terms of personal experiences, I have used the JLab GO Air earbuds during light rain showers while out for a jog, and they have held up perfectly fine. The water resistance feature gives me peace of mind knowing that a little moisture won’t damage them. However, I always make sure to wipe them clean and dry them thoroughly afterwards before storing them back in the case.

While the JLab GO Air earbuds are not completely waterproof, their IPX4 water resistance rating allows for use in light rain and during workouts without worrying about water damage. Just remember to take care of them by wiping them clean and drying them properly, and be cautious with the non-water-resistant charging case in wet conditions.
