IP ratings is the level of protection offered by a casing, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the Sony WF C500's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.

Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) to make zero therefore "diluting" the noise.

However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
Sony WF C500's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices make sound with equal bass
Sony WF C500's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component produces high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices generate equal treble
