Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero hence "diluting" the noise.
