Ingress protection ratings is the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX5, the 1More Aero's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 5 means 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.

ANC uses advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero thus "diluting" the noise.

1More Aero's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Sennheiser CX 500BT's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, this implies that Sennheiser CX 500BT produce a juicier bass than the 1More Aero
1More Aero's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio component generates high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
Sennheiser CX 500BT's highest frequency is at 21000Hz, this implies that Sennheiser CX 500BT generate a clearer and crispier treble than the 1More Aero
