ANC utilises advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
The JBL Live Pro 2 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
