Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
