Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
Audio Technica ATH TWX9 have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.
