IP ratings refer to the rating of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX5, the 1More Aero's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids 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.

ANC uses more advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Sony WF 1000XM3 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.

1More Aero driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Sony WF 1000XM3 by 4mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
Sony WF 1000XM3's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
1More Aero's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices produce equal bass
Sony WF 1000XM3's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component produces high audible frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
1More Aero's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal treble
Sony WF 1000XM3 have neodymium magnets, when used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output while using less power. They can help generate music at quite a high sound pressure level, with the use of high magnetic flux.
