Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and then inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.

OnePlus Buds Z2 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 3mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
The OnePlus Buds Z2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
OnePlus Buds Z2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component makes high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Technics EAH AZ60's battery life is 7.5 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 requires fewer chargings.
