IP ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IP67, the LG Tone Free Fit TF8's rating for solids indicates that they are completely dust proof, and the second number of 7 means that they are protected against temporary immersion in water under set conditions, say 1 metre for 30 minutes.
In comparison to the LG Tone Free Fit TF8, Mpow Flame S have a rating of IPX7 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 uses advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it.
