IP ratings refer to the level of protection given by a casing, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX5, the 1More Aero's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they can withstand medium pressure jet that's 6.3mm diameter, similar to garden hose from any angle for 3 minutes at a distance of 2.5 to 3 metres.
In comparison to the 1More Aero, Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II has a lower liquid rating than 1More Aero

ANC makes use of more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The 1More Aero have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.

However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The 1More Aero's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices make sound with equal bass
1More Aero's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device makes high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices can generate equal treble
