Active noise cancellation uses more advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and after inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
