Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to actively cancel noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
