Marshall Monitor ANC II - increased vulnerability to water damage?



I've been using the Marhsall Monitor bluetooth headphones for about a year and I haven't had any issues using these in rain or during really sweaty sessions at the gym. I'm now looking to upgrade to the Marshall Monitor A.N.C. II. And from the promotion video posted by marshall( I see at the 1:17 mark that(what I assume is) the microphones for A.N.C. will be located on the top of the headset.
Will this pose a higher risk for water damage on this headset modell?

See screenshot from promotion video:

Thanks for any type of response.

Reply from incase someone's interested:

Thank you so much for your inquiry!

My apologies, it is not recommended to use any of our Headphones in wet conditions as they do not offer water resistance.

Unfortunately, the Monitor II ANC will not be a good choice to use in the rain.

Please do not hesitate to write again with any further questions or comments.

Best regards,

Unbelievable in 2021 at this Price Range. To be fair - it is not only a Marshall Issue - any Headphone for Outdoor use should be water resistant!!!!! Otherwise it is not usable outside. Simple.
