Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are rated 1meters any depth more than that they will be spoilt. Devices that can withstand more water pressure are better for diving.
ANC utilises more advanced technology to actively cancel 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 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.

However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yes, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes 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 for a single charge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
