Ingress protection ratings refer to the rank of protection given by a casing, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Technics EAH AZ60'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 utilises advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
