The IPX4 certified waterproofing is flagged again. Same goes for the key battery stats: up to 8 hours on a single charge with ANC (active noise cancellation) enabled, or 12 with power off. when combined with the charging box That means you should get up to 36 hours of battery life, and videos also feature you can play for up to an hour from just a 5-minute charge.
