TLDR: The xFyro ANC Pro AI-Powered Wireless Earbuds use artificial intelligence to amp up its noise cancelling powers to make the music better while keeping listeners safer.

Everybody loves the convenience of earbuds. The tiny little powerhouses don’t have all the heft of lugging around over-ear headphones while still dishing up premium sound. But they still suffer from the same concern held by over-ear users — how do you enjoy the full scope of your music uninterrupted while still remaining safe to all the dangers of the world when you can’t hear what’s happening around you?

One answer appears to be artificial intelligence, which is at the heart of some cool innovations included as part of the xFyro ANC Pro AI-Powered Wireless Earbuds. Right now, they’re available at over 80 percent off their regular price, just $39.99 from TNW Deals.

At their most basic level, the ANC Pros are a solid set of studio quality earbud tech. Crafted around 7mm graphene drivers made from one of the thinnest and strongest materials on earth, the pair kick up premium quality sound that won’t degrade through vibration like materials that make up lesser drivers.

Packed with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity that auto-pairs automatically to devices at up to 30 feet away with no lag or loss, these buds also fit like a champ, ergonomically sized and designed to feel like you aren’t wearing earbuds at all.

But where the ANC Pros have a true step on most other earbud models is with their innovative active noise cancellation system, which uses artificial intelligence to more effectively block the sounds you hear and don’t hear when the earbuds are in.

Using their own AI algorithm, the ANC Pros use the earbud mics for making and receiving calls to intelligently filter all the sound that’s happening around you. The Pros have been programmed to recognize more than 6,000 sounds, so ambient sound like general room noise, indirect chatter, or machinery signatures are intercepted and eliminated from your sound mix. 

But when something more substantial is detected, sounds like sirens, alarms, or someone speaking directly to you, the Pros let that sound pass through your buds, guaranteeing you’ll hear the sounds you need while casually ignoring the ones you don’t.

Protected from the elements with an IPX5 water resistance rating, the Pros are also ready to keep going as long as you do, with up to 8 hours of battery life per charge. It also comes with a charging case to extend that life up to 100 total hours before you need to plug in again.

Retailing for $250, the xFyro ANC Pro AI-Powered Wireless Earbuds are now on sale at almost 85 percent off their regular price, down to only $39.99.
