IP ratings refer to the level of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the Technics EAH AZ80's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value 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 uses more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
