Already a solid deal at $50, the Enacfire A9 feels like a steal at $28.

David Carnoy/CNET

Looking to fill your ears with audio goodness without spending $200 or more on the AirPods Pro? I got you. The latest (maybe greatest?) example is the Enacfire A9, a decent set of ANC earbuds that normally sells for $50.

Right now, however, you can score the Enacfire A9 for just $27.48 with the on-page $10-off coupon and promo code QOA9ZNMN. That's from Amazon seller FLY-A; if you see a different seller listed, it's possible FLY-A is sold out or has discontinued the sale.

The A9 ticks a lot of important boxes: active noise cancellation, transparency mode, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C charging and an IPX7 waterproof rating.

No ear detection and no wireless charging, though. Getting those in this price range is pretty challenging.

I haven't tested these myself, but here's what David Carnoy had to say about them: "The Enacfire A9 looks and feels like a budget set of earbuds. But they should fit most ears comfortably and perform like a model that costs more, with decent sound (it's a little on the warm side, with a bass-forward profile) and decent headset performance for making calls. The noise canceling isn't up to the level of the AirPods Pro, but it does offer some muffling capabilities."

Meanwhile, nearly 400 Amazon buyers gave the A9 a 4.6-star average rating, which is pretty solid.
