ANC makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.

However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
The Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal bass
Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device generates high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Skullcandy Indy Fuel
