Your sentences are confusing.. Anyway, basically you want to use wireless headphones for gym and you want it to be IP rated? 

In that case, your option is only AirPods Pro. AirPods do not have any IP rating. Even though you don't use the ANC, the rubber sealing in AirPods Pro will definitely improve the external sound leak which improves overall sound quality in AirPods Pro.

 

Just that it cost $50 more expensive as compared with Wireless Charging AirPods 2

Air Pods 2 
⦁    Price : $159
⦁    Wireless Charging Case : Yes ($ 40 Extra)
⦁    Chip : H1
⦁    Rated Battery Life: 5 hours (24 hours with charging case)

⦁    Case Size: 2.11 x 1.74 x 0.84 inches
⦁    Case Weight: 1.41 ounces
⦁    Special Features : Audio sharing, announced messages with Siri


Air Pods Pro
⦁    Price : $249
⦁    Wireless Charging Case : Yes 
⦁    Chip : H1
⦁    Rated Battery Life: 4.5 hours (24 hours with charging case)
⦁    Water Resistance: IPX 4 (can withstand sweat and water, but not for use in water sports)
⦁    Case Size: 2.39 x 1.78 x 0.85 inches
⦁    Case Weight: 1.61 ounces
⦁    Special Features : Active noise cancellation, transparency mode, adaptive EQ, customizable fit, audio sharing, announced messages with Siri


If you want noise cancellation, a customizable fit and a sweat-resistant package, AirPods Pro is the clear winner. But for those who just care about great sound and a relatively affordable price, the AirPods 2 are still better than most wireless earbuds you can buy.

      OnePlus Buds said to support Warp Charge technology
      by Sambit Satpathy



      OnePlus’ first-ever truly wireless earbuds – OnePlus Buds – will launch alongside the OnePlus Nord smartphone on July 21. Ahead of the official launch, we are being treated to some interesting tidbits on the upcoming product. The latest information is regarding the Buds’ charging technology.

      The upcoming OnePlus Buds case is said to support the company’s Warp Charge technology. It will help offer 10 hours worth of usage with just 10 minutes of charging. This was revealed by OnePlus Buds’ Project Manager Jay Liu in an interview with TechRadar.

      Liu further adds that users will be able to fast charge the OnePlus Buds using any 10W and above charger. The company however is said to be limiting the charging at 5v 1.5A to avoid damaging the 430mAh Lithium Ion battery inside the case.

      Earlier this week in a blog post, CEO Pete Lau revealed that the earbuds alone will last up to seven hours on a single charge. When put into the charging case, they will be able to offer up to 30 hours usage.

      To put all of this into context, the Apple AirPods offer five hours worth of audio playback with 15 minutes of charging. With the charging case, the total usage goes up to 24 hours.

      AirPods 3 reportedly expected in the first half of 2021, will look like the AirPods Pro
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Apple is reportedly planning to launch the third generation AirPods sometime in the first half of 2021. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the Cupertino giant will continue to sell the second-generation AirPods and AirPods Pro through the 2020 holiday period. The analyst also includes in his note (accessed by AppleInsider) that he expects AirPods shipments to grow for the remainder of the year, adding that the “worst will be over in 2Q20”.

      The latest predictions build on the analyst’s earlier notes that the company will not offer EarPods with the upcoming iPhone 12 devices. The firm is expected to boost the earbud’s sales by running promotions for iPhone 12 buyers, along with providing discounts for other customers. The research note also predicts that the company will ship around 93 million units in 2020 owing to strong growth in sales year-over-year and increased demand.

      As for the AirPods 3 themselves, Kuo says that the devices will have a “new form factor design” and will look similar to the AirPods Pro. It is not clear what design traits or features the third-generation earbuds will borrow from the more expensive product. The AirPods Pro features a shorter stem and silicone tips for the in-ear design and adds a host of features, including noise cancellation.

      While there have been reports of a new AirPods model ready for launch earlier this year, the reputed analyst suggests that the Cupertino giant is not planning to launch any AirPods or AirPods Pro models in 2020.

      iPhone 12 may not come with EarPods in the box
      by Usman Khan Lodhi

      According to the latest report from reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 may not come with EarPods included in the box, in a bid to drive up the sales for AirPods, which are sold separately. The Cupertino firm has included earbuds with the iPhone since the first model of the smartphone was launched in 2007.

      Kuo also stated that no new models of AirPods or AirPods Pro are expected to launch until next year, and the firm may substantially discount the AirPods during this holiday season. When the iPhone 7 was launched, the firm offset the exclusion of the headphone jack by including EarPods in the box. If the company no longer offers it, customers requiring headphones will be forced to buy either EarPods with Lightning Connector, or spend more money on AirPods. Apple's web store offers EarPods for $29, and the base variant of AirPods starts at $159.

      In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, there has been a slump in Apple's sales this year; however, Kuo believes that sales will grow by the holiday season, and there will be a strong year-over-year (YOY) growth in sales of AirPods Pro, with the firm expected to ship 80 to 93 million units this year.

      The Logitech 3-in-1 Dock is the AirPower that users have wanted
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Logitech is unveiling three new wireless chargers branded under its new ‘POWERED’ line of chargers. These include the new POWERED 3-in-1 Dock, the POWERED Stand, and the POWERED Pad. While the Stand and the Pad are more traditional in style, the interesting one is the 3-in-1 Dock. The device is specifically made for Apple devices and can charge the AirPods, iPhone, and Watch at once.

      Those that find the idea familiar might remember the Apple AirPower, a device that was shown off in 2017 and scrapped in 2019 after much delay owing to overheating issues. Unlike the AirPower that aimed to charge any device placed anywhere on the surface, the 3-in-1 Dock has designated slots for the phone, earbuds, and watch. This results in a neat setup.

      Since the dock uses the Qi Wireless standard, the device can also charge compatible devices from Samsung, Google, LG, and more. The docking station can deliver 7.5W fast charging on both slots – the flat surface for the earbuds and the phone stand. The 3-in-1 Dock is priced at $129.99 and is available in White and Graphite colors.

      As for the Stand and the Pad, those devices support 9W Fast Charging for Samsung phones and 7.5W Fast Charging for Apple devices. They can also be used to charge AirPods cases at 5W.

      The Stand comes in at $59.99 and is offered in White and Graphite colors, while the Pad has an asking price of $39.99, with color options including Graphite, White, Blue Sage, and Lilac. The two devices can be pre-ordered today. The Stand will ship in May 2020, while it is not clear when the Pad would begin shipping.
