Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
