Protecting products against water
From workplace to home and everywhere in between, one of the biggest risks to the performance of electronic devices is exposure to the elements—specifically water. Plantronics has a way to take away the worry about rain, humidity, sweat, and accidental spills.
We’ve partnered with the company P2i to use their nano-coating technology on our fitness Bluetooth headphones as well as our premium consumer communication headsets. P2i’s nano-coating technology causes water to simply bead up on contact and run off the treated device instead of permeating electrical components that potentially lead to corrosion damage. Originally designed to treat soldiers’ uniforms as protection from environmental and chemical hazards, the P2i coating has a thickness equivalent to one-thousandth of a human hair and does not affect electrical conductivity, so the entire headset, inside and out, can be protected.
IP ratings and what they mean
||Protection from dust and water splashes|
|IP57||Protection from dust and fresh water immersion up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.
Will my headset work underwater?
No. At the IP57 level, the product is certified to withstand fresh water immersion up to 1 meter deep for 30 minutes. However, Bluetooth signals do not transmit through water, preventing music streaming and phone calls when submerged.
