Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Sony WF 1000XM3 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling 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.

However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
The Sony WF 1000XM3's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component produces low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
1More Aero's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
The Sony WF 1000XM3's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio device generates high audible frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
1More Aero's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
