IP ratings refer to the level of protection offered by a casing, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of 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 value 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.
Compared to the OnePlus Buds Pro 2, JBL Live Pro 2 have a rating of IPX5 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 more advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero therefore "diluting" the noise.
