Are AirPod Pros Waterproof Shower-Proof?

AirPods Pro and AirPods (3rd generation) aren't designed for use in water sports like swimming, or for showering .

The AirPod Pros are the latest offering from Apple. They come with noise cancellation, better sound quality, and have an improved design over previous models. But what about their water resistance? Can they survive a shower or a dip in the pool?

The AirPod Pros have an IPX4 rating, which means they are splash-resistant and can withstand some water exposure. But how well do they fare when put to the test? Alex from a popular YouTube channel decided to test this out.

He first checked if the AirPod Pros were genuine by playing music through them. Then, he decided to take them for a shower. He played music while in the shower and noted that the sound was a bit faint, but the AirPods were still working. He also observed that there was some water inside one of the AirPods.

After the shower, he dried them off and tested the sound quality again. He found that the sound was back to normal, and he couldn’t spot any visible water damage. He also checked if the noise cancellation feature was working, and he couldn’t hear anything from outside.

Overall, the AirPod Pros passed the waterproof shower test. While they may not be completely waterproof, they can withstand some water exposure, which is great news for those who like to listen to music while showering or doing water-related activities.
