Active noise cancellation utilises more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero thus "diluting" the noise.
