Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and then inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 thus "diluting" the noise.
Soundpeats Mini Pro 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 outcompete background noise.

The Sennheiser CX 500BT's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device generates low audible frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
The Sennheiser CX 500BT's highest frequency is at 21000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Sennheiser CX 500BT's measurement is 94dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Soundpeats Mini Pro's battery life is 7 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
