Design & Comfort
These earbuds are comfortable enough and you get an assortment of ear tips to try so you can get a good fit. Both earbuds have the logo where the touch controls are and also have LED lights to let you know if they are charging. The charging case has a glossy lid that is translucent and has the iKanzi branding on it while the bottom of it has a matte finish. Placing the earbuds into their magnetic case will charge them. The charging case is also slightly big in size, however, it can still be stored in your pocket with no issue.
The iKanzi X9 True Wireless earbuds are available in Bright Black and White.
The charging case also works as a power bank as it features a USB port that you can use to charge your device or your phone. Inside the case, there is a bar of LED lights to indicate the battery life status and these lights are visible even with the lid closed because the lid is translucent, very convenient. In terms of battery life, with the iKanzi X9 True Wireless earbuds, with just one charge you can get 3-4 hours of playtime. But, the charging case can increase this by giving an additional 18 charges to the buds, which means that the charging case can offer up to 72 hours of use.
The iKanzi X9 True Wireless earbuds provide sound that has a strong bass and the vocals have a lot of clarity. You do not get any distortion, so the sound quality of these wireless earbuds is not at all disappointing for a pair of cheap true wireless buds.
The iKanzi X9 True Wireless earbuds feature built-in mics to make phone calls. Call quality is not the clearest as these tend to pick up sounds from around you.
The iKanzi X9 earbuds feature Bluetooth 5.0 with a decent range before the signal starts to break up. You get a very good connection with not many dropouts. Removing these earbuds from the charging case will turn them on and they automatically start to pair. Placing them back will turn them off instantly.
The iKanzi X9 True Wireless earbuds feature touch-sensitive controls that are very easy to use. Tap any of the buds to play or pause music, you have to double-tap the left bud to go to the previous track, double-tap the right bud for the next song, you can activate the Voice Assistant by tapping and holding any of the buds, in order to decrease the volume you have to tap and hold the left bud while you can tap and hold the right one to bring the volume up. To pick up a call or end a call you can just tap either bud.
The iKanzi X9 earbuds are IPX7 waterproof. So, if these come into contact with some rain or sweat they will be just fine. They certainly are ideal for use during exercise.
ANC (Active Noise Canceling Technology)
There seems to be an absence of Active Noise Canceling Technology. Though, these are noise-reducing to a great extent.

iKanzi seems to be a no-name brand and at this moment, they do not seem to have a website either. Their wireless earbuds seem to be the only product they carry.
Quality & Materials Used
Since they are affordable, these earbuds and their charging case are made of plastic. But, the build quality is still pretty nice and they do not feel breakable.
At the time of this review, the iKanzi X9 True Wireless Earbuds are priced at $39.99.
