ANC uses advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and then inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (inverted noise) to make zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
