The ENACFIRE E60 Truly Wireless are budget-level truly wireless headphones. They have a comfortable in-ear fit and they're stable enough for moderate exercise. They also have a fairly neutral but slightly bass-heavy sound profile, which is suited for a variety of audio content. They have just under seven hours of continuous playtime and their carrying case offers up to five additional charges. Unfortunately, their integrated microphone has poor overall performance as it struggles to separate voices from ambient noise, and the speech it does capture sounds thin and muffled. However, if you're primarily using these headphones to listen to music, they're a solid choice.

Note 02/26/2021: A user has reported that ENACFIRE changed the chipset in these headphones. As a result, the new ENACFIRE E60 Wireless Earbuds don't support aptX codec anymore. However, the manufacturer hasn't renamed the product or model number to indicate this change, so there isn't a clear way to know if the model you're purchasing still supports this feature. We also don't know if this variant performs similarly to our model.

Our Verdict

7.1 Mixed Usage

The ENACFIRE E60 are decent for mixed use. These portable in-ears are comfortable enough to wear for long periods and have a stable fit so you can wear them during physical exercise. While they struggle to cut down bass-range noise like bus engines, they're able to reduce ambient chatter, which is great for an office setting. They also have a fairly balanced sound, making it easy to enjoy most audio content. However, they have a lot of latency, they can't be used wired, and their mic has an all-around disappointing performance, so they're best enjoyed when listening to audio and not playing games.

Pros
  • Comfortable, stable in-ear fit.
  • Can cut down a lot of mid to treble-range noise.
  • IPX8 rating.
Cons
  • Poor integrated mic.
  • No EQ.
  • Struggles to block out bass-range noise.
  • Simple-to-use but limited controls.
6.8 Neutral Sound

The ENACFIRE E60 are alright for neutral sound. Although they have a slightly bass-heavy sound profile, they're still fairly neutral-sounding. They also have consistent audio delivery and they're comfortable enough to wear for long listening sessions. However, they don't have an EQ so you won't be able to tweak their sound.

Pros
  • Comfortable, stable in-ear fit.
Cons
  • No EQ.
7.8 Commute/Travel

The ENACFIRE E60 are good for commute and travel. While they struggle to reduce bass-range noise like bus or train engines, they're able to really reduce ambient chatter. These portable in-ears are also comfortable enough to wear for long trips and their continuous battery life can get you through most commutes. There's even up to five additional charges in their carrying case if you need more battery life.

Pros
  • Comfortable, stable in-ear fit.
  • IPX8 rating.
Cons
  • Struggles to block out bass-range noise.
  • Simple-to-use but limited controls.
8.1 Sports/Fitness

The ENACFIRE E60 are very good for sports and fitness. These small, truly wireless headphones can easily fit into most pockets or bags when you're on the go. While they have a comfortable and stable fit, they also come with six differently-sized ear tips to help you get the best fit. There aren't any cables that can get snagged either and their battery life should last through a long run or gym session. They also have an IPX8 rating, although we don't currently test for this.

Pros
  • Comfortable, stable in-ear fit.
Cons
  • Simple-to-use but limited controls.
6.9 Office

The ENACFIRE E60 are alright for office use. These in-ears are comfortable enough to wear throughout your shift. While their battery life may fall a little short if you work a 9-5, there's up to five additional charges in their carrying case. They also do a good job of reducing ambient office chatter and they leak very little noise, so you can listen to your music at a high volume without worrying if you're disturbing your coworkers.

Pros
  • Comfortable, stable in-ear fit.
  • Can cut down a lot of mid to treble-range noise.
Cons
  • Simple-to-use but limited controls.
  • No multi-device pairing.
5.0 Wireless Gaming

The ENACFIRE E60 can connect to Bluetooth-enabled PCs, but their audio latency is a little too high for them to be well-suited for wireless gaming. They also aren’t compatible with PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

4.9 Wired Gaming

The ENACFIRE E60 are Bluetooth-only and can’t be used with a wired connection.

5.2 Phone Calls

The ENACFIRE E60 are disappointing for phone calls. Their integrated mic captures voices that sound muffled and thin. It also struggles to separate speech from moderately noisy environments, which isn't great if you're making calls from a busy street. On the upside, these headphones have good noise isolation and while they struggle to reduce low-bass noise like bus engines, they can cut down quite a bit of ambient chatter.

Pros
  • Comfortable, stable in-ear fit.
  • Can cut down a lot of mid to treble-range noise.
Cons
  • Simple-to-use but limited controls.
  • Poor recording quality.
  • Bad microphone noise handling.

Style

The ENACFIRE E60 are pretty low-profile truly wireless in-ears. They have an all-black satin plastic design with a silver 'L' or 'R' on their earbuds to let you know which side they're for. If you prefer a different style, they come in several color variants like red or gray.

The ENACFIRE E60 are comfortable headphones. They don't put too much pressure on the ear and they don't have a deep fit either. Even though they have touch-sensitive controls, you don't have to push hard to register a command either. They come with six different ear-tips so you can find a fit that better suits you.

These truly wireless headphones have alright controls. They're easy-to-use but they're quite limited in scope. You can tap once to play or pause, tap twice on the left earbud to go to the previous track or tap twice on the right earbud to go to the next track. You can also tap three times to activate voice assistant. When you touch and hold the left earbud, you lower the volume. To raise the volume, you simply hold the right earbud. There's also feedback beeps when you've reached the min/max volume. There are voice prompts for pairing and when you turn the headphones on/off as well.

These headphones have a good build quality. They're made of dense and good-quality plastic which makes them feel solid. The earbuds are also rated IPX8 for water resistance, although we don't currently test for this.

The ENACFIRE E60 are stable headphones. Even though they lack stability fins, they should still stay in your ears during a light run or workout. They also come with several tip sizes so you can find one that fits best.

The ENACFIRE E60 have a slightly bass-heavy sound profile that fans of EDM and hip-hop can enjoy. However, their treble is underemphasized, which makes them sound a little veiled and dull. They don't have access to an EQ or presets, so you can't tweak their sound.

They have a remarkable frequency response consistency. If you can achieve a proper fit and an air-tight seal using the assortment of tips, then you should be able to get a consistent bass and treble delivery every time you use the headphones.

The ENACFIRE E60 have great bass accuracy. Although the bass response is fairly flat, the mid and high-bass are overemphasized. However, some listeners may prefer this as it adds punch and boom to the mix.

The mid accuracy of these headphones is excellent. It's has a fairly even response, although there's a dip in the mid-mids which can slightly nudge vocals and lead instruments to the back of the mix.

The ENACFIRE E60 have acceptable treble accuracy. It's underemphasized across the range, which results in veiled vocals and lead instruments as well as dull sibilants like cymbals.

The ENACFIRE E60's peaks and dips performance is good. There's a small peak in the high-bass that adds some boominess and the dip in the mid-mid nudges vocals and lead instruments to the back of the mix. As a counter, the peak in the high-mids to low-treble pushes these vocals and lead instruments forward again, which sounds a little harsh or honky.

The stereo imaging of these headphones is exceptional. The group delay falls under the audibility threshold, resulting in a tight bass and transparent treble reproduction. Both L/R drivers are also well-balanced, which is important for the accurate placement and localization of objects and instruments in the stereo image. However, these results are only valid for our unit and yours may perform differently.

Like most in-ears, these headphones have a very bad soundstage. Due to their in-ear design, they bypass the pinna or outer ear, which is a big factor in creating an out-of-head or speaker-like soundstage. Without activating the pinna, their soundstage is perceived as small and located inside your head rather than out in front.

The noise isolation performance of these headphones is good. While they struggle a lot to cut down bass-range noise like bus or plane engines, they do a significantly better job in the mid and treble-range, which is where ambient chatter and higher frequency noises like A/C units lay.

The recording quality of the integrated mic is poor. Your voice sounds thin, muffled, and distorted. You should consider the Mpow MDots True Wireless or the Cowin Apex Elite Truly Wireless if you're looking for in-ears with a better-performing integrated mic. However, if you're speaking in a relatively quiet environment, you should still be understood.

The ENACFIRE E60's battery performance is mediocre. They're advertised to have an 8-hour playback time, but we measured just under seven, which is still a bit longer than their competitors such as the Mpow M30 Truly Wireless. While their continuous playback time may not be enough to get you through a work day, the carrying case holds up to five additional charges. You can also use one earbud at a time while the other one charges but it can be a little tricky as you need to pair the earbuds separately. Unfortunately, unlike the SoundPeats TrueFree 2 Wireless, these headphones don't have a standby mode to help conserve battery life when not in use.

The ENACFIRE E60 Bluetooth v5.0 Wireless Earbuds have alright Bluetooth connectivity. While they don't have NFC or multi-device pairing, they support aptX codec, which is useful when you want better audio quality. However, they have quite a high latency when using this codec to stream video and using SBC codec is even worse. On the upside, their iOS latency is lower and it's even less on Android. Some apps and devices seem to compensate for this, so your experience may vary.

Compared To Other Headphones

The ENACFIRE E60 are decent budget-level truly wireless headphones. Compared to other in-ears in this price range, such as the Mpow M30 Truly Wireless or TOZO T10 Truly Wireless, they have a longer continuous battery life, and their charging case also holds more charges. They also have a fairly balanced, although slightly bass-heavy sound profile that's still suited for a variety of audio content. However, their integrated mic performs quite poorly overall. If you're still looking for more headphones, check out our recommendations for the best truly wireless earbuds, the best wireless Bluetooth earbuds under $100, and the best wireless Bluetooth earbuds.

TOZO T12 Truly Wireless

The ENACFIRE E60 Truly Wireless are slightly better truly wireless in-ears than the TOZO T12 Truly Wireless. The ENACFIRE are more comfortable, their sound profile is more balanced and neutral-sounding, and they have longer continuous battery life. Their charging case also holds more charges and they support aptX codec. However, the TOZO's integrated mic has a significantly better recording quality.

Mpow M30 Truly Wireless

The ENACFIRE E60 Truly Wireless and the Mpow M30 Truly Wireless are similarly-performing truly wireless headphones. They're both well-built and comfortable. However, the ENACFIRE E60 can isolate more noise, their continuous battery life is longer, and they have more charges in their case. Conversely, the Mpow have a better integrated mic and their fit is more stable.

TOZO T6 Truly Wireless

The ENACFIRE E60 Truly Wireless are a bit better truly wireless in-ears than the TOZO T6 Truly Wireless. The ENACFIRE are much more comfortable, their sound profile is better-balanced and more neutral, and their continuous battery life is longer. Their charging case holds more charges too, and they support aptX codec. The TOZO's integrated mic performs better overall, though.

TOZO T10 Truly Wireless

The ENACFIRE E60 Truly Wireless are better truly wireless headphones overall than the TOZO T10 Truly Wireless. The ENACFIRE are more comfortable, their control scheme is easier-to-use, and their sound profile is better balanced and neutral-sounding. Their continuous battery life is longer, and their case holds one more additional charge. However, TOZO have a better performing integrated mic and they can isolate more noise.

FIIL T1X True Wireless

The ENACFIRE E60 Truly Wireless and the FIIL T1X True Wireless are two very similarly performing in-ear headphones. They're both comfortable and well-built headphones. That said, the FIIL have a more neutral sound profile that delivers a bit more bass and treble as well as a companion app that offers 15 EQ presets. They also have a more stable in-ear fit as they come with stability fins. On the other hand, the ENACFIRE's charging case also holds more additional charges. However, it doesn't go into standby mode when not in use like the FIIL.

Mpow MDots True Wireless

The ENACFIRE E60 Truly Wireless are more versatile than the Mpow MDots True Wireless. The ENACFIRE are comfier, better-made, block out more ambient noise, leak less audio, exhibit lower audio latency, and have longer overall battery life. However, the Mpow deliver better microphone recording quality and are more stable in the ear.

Cowin Apex Elite Truly Wireless

The ENACFIRE E60 Truly Wireless are better than the Cowin Apex Elite Truly Wireless. The ENACFIRE are better-built, and even though they lack an ANC feature, they have better noise isolation. They also leak less audio, and have a more neutral sound, especially in the mid-range. However, the Cowin have a better mic performance, which is more suited for making phone calls.

SoundPeats TrueFree 2 Wireless

The ENACFIRE E60 Truly Wireless are more versatile than the SoundPeats TrueFree 2 Wireless. The ENACFIRE have a comfier fit, an easier-to-use control scheme, and block out far more ambient noise. They have much longer continuous battery life and come with a case that supplies a total of roughly 40 hours of playback time. However, unlike the SoundPeats, they don't have a standby mode. The SoundPeats also have a slightly more stable fit.
