Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP57, the Jabra Elite Active 75t's rating for solids indicates that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety, and of liquids that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.

Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced technology to actively cancel noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
