Ingress protection ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of IP44, the JLab Go Air's rating is read as, the first number of 4 denotes that they are protected against objects greater than 1.0mm such as wire, and the second value of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the JLab Go Air, Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II have a rating of IPX4 meaning that no data available to specify a protection rating and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids

Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
