Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IP55, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2's rating for solids indicates that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety, and the second number of 5 means that they can withstand medium pressure jet that's 6.3mm diameter, similar to garden hose from any angle for 3 minutes at a distance of 2.5 to 3 metres.

Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero thus "diluting" the noise.
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.
