Amazon came back for an encore with its second-gen Echo Buds, with a focus on improving fit and audio performance, whereas Google cut a few things down to make the Pixel Buds A-Series compelling budget-oriented earbuds. Who ultimately made the right move?
The Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) are in some ways just an incremental upgrade over their predecessors, but in other ways, they are a huge improvement from the first generation. It's not often that a brand is able to fix basically every complaint I had from one version to the next, but that's pretty much what Amazon did with these earbuds.
Amazon's encore with its Echo Buds is proof that a sequel can be better than the original, but that's also what made the Jabra Elite 75t so good compared to their predecessors. That makes for a tighter race between these two wireless earbuds, and the winner doesn't take the crown easily.
When Amazon first marketed the Echo Buds, the idea was to make an entrance without making a splash. The Echo Buds enter a second generation, and while there's not as big a splash this time, the results suggest that it truly is out with the old and in with the new.
Ever since Amazon announced the Echo and Alexa in late 2014, we've been waiting to see how the smart voice assistant will make a difference to us in the "real world." Not only did Amazon give Alexa a foot (ear, really) out the door, they managed to create a pretty compelling set of wireless earbuds as well.
Amazon is back with another pair of Echo Buds, and this second-generation sports a different look and feel from the originals. Except the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ also had comfort to appreciate, so what sets these two apart? It's about everything else they can and can't do.
The new Echo Buds offer active noise-cancellation, hands-free Alexa, and up to 15 hours of battery life with the included charging case. Pre-order today to save $20 and score six months of Audible Plus and Amazon Music Unlimited for free!
Alexa's 6th birthday is coming up, and our favorite AI voice assistant is discounting all of her favorite Amazon devices. I recommend that you rush to grab a pair of Amazon's underrated Echo Buds which are on sale today for $50 off!
Amazon entered the true wireless earbuds category by offering something that was neither over the top, nor overtly expensive. Samsung made noticeable improvements to its Galaxy Buds Plus that stand out, so how do these two compare to each other? We’ve put both to the test to find out.
Amazon recently announced that there was a potential problem with its popular Echo Buds true wireless earbuds overheating while in their charging case. If you have a pair of Echo Buds, you're going to want to follow these steps to update their firmware and correct the situation.
This is the first major discount the Echo Buds have seen since their introduction late last year. They feature premium speaker drivers, Bose active noise reduction, hands-free Alexa, and up to 20 hours of battery life with the included charging case.
One of the most frustrating things about buying new earbuds is the fact that you can't really try them on in advance to know how they'll fit (or if they'll fit). Thankfully, the Echo Buds come with multiple eartips, wings, and a software solution for ensuring a proper fit.
