Active noise cancellation uses more advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 outside (noise from your surrounding) and adding -1 inside (counter sound within the device) to make 0 hence "diluting" the noise.
Shure Aonic 50 Gen 2 allow you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise.
Passive Noise Cancellation uses well-designed ear cups to seal out unwanted noise. This is used for both in-ear earphones and over-ear headphones where the headphone itself will keep surrounding noise out. The Shure Aonic 50 Gen 2 sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
Low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device reproduces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it. Shure Aonic 50 Gen 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
High frequency response measures if and how well an audio device reproduces high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it. Shure Aonic 50 Gen 2's highest frequency is at 22,000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. Shure Aonic 50 Gen 2 driver unit is 50mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
