Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. 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.
The Huawei FreeBuds 5i have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
