ANC utilises more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
Sony WF C700N have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
