Design

1.Ingress Protection (IP) rating

IPX4

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Sol Republic Shadow Fusion)

The first number of the IP rating refers to protection against dust, while the second number refers to protection against liquid. E.g. a first number of 6 denotes that it is completely dustproof, and a second number of 7 denotes that the device can withstand full immersion in water.
2.weight

12g

27g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
3.has no wires or cables
