Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
