ANC makes use of more advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
JBL Reflect Aero TWS have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
