IP ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Jabra Elite 85t's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Jabra Elite 85t, Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids

ANC utilises more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
Jabra Elite 85t have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
