The SONY WF-SP800N Earbuds Featured with IP55 Waterproof
In fact, in addition to a more comfortable and solid design, supporting IP55 waterproof and dustproof is also one of the differences between SONY WF-SP800N and SONY WF-1000MX3.
But it is worth noting that the SONY WF-SP800N charging box is not water-resistant/dust proofing. While the water-resistant specifications of WF-SP800N headset are equivalent to IPX5 in IEC 60529 “Degrees of protection against ingress of water (IP Code)”, which specifies the degree of protection provided against the entry of water, and the dust proofing specifications of this unit are equivalent to IP5X in IEC 60529 “Degrees of protection against solid foreign objects (IP Code)”, which specifies the degree of protection provided against the entry of solid foreign objects.
Unless the SONY WF-SP800N headset is used correctly, water or dust may get into the earphones and cause fire, electrocution, or malfunctions. So, please note the following cautions carefully and use the headset correctly.
●IPX5: The headset will maintain its operability even when exposed to direct jet streams of water from any direction (except for the sound conduits (sound output tubes) of the headset).
●IP5X: The headset will maintain its safety and satisfactory operation in the event of ingress of dust.
●The sound conduits (sound output tubes) of the headset are not completely watertight.
Liquids that the SONY WF-SP800N Water Resistant Performance Specifications Apply to
●Applicable: Freshwater, tap water, perspiration
●Not applicable: Liquids other than those above (examples: soapy water, detergent water, water with bath agents, shampoo, hot spring water, pool water, seawater, etc.)
How to Protect SONY WF-SP800N Earbuds from Wet Damage?
Please carefully note the precautions below to ensure the proper use of the SONY WF-SP800N headset.
●Do not splash water forcibly into the sound output holes.
●Do not drop the headset into the water, and do not use underwater.
●Do not allow the headset to remain wet in a cold environment, as the water may freeze. To prevent malfunction, make sure to wipe off any water after use.
●Use a soft dry cloth to wipe off any water that gets on the headset. If water remains in the sound output holes, the sound may become muffled or completely inaudible. If this happens, remove the SONY WF-SP800N earbuds, position the sound output holes facing downward, and shake several times to get the water out.
●Turn the microphone hole downward and gently tap it about 5 times towards a dry cloth etc. If any water drops are left in the microphone hole, it may cause corrosion.
