Just in time for the holidays, you can buy the latest Amazon Echo Buds for just $80, saving you $50 on the usual price. If you’re keen to embrace all things Alexa and Echo related, you’re sure to be happy with these earbuds, which offer active noise reduction and much more. If you’re keen to check out the competition, we’ve also got plenty of other great headphone deals out there for you to take a look at.
The Amazon Echo Buds are pretty inexpensive for true wireless earbuds while offering plenty of useful features. Although they didn’t quite make the cut in our look at the best true wireless earbuds guide, they’re still worth checking out given what they offer. That includes Alexa support, which means there’s no need to touch anything once you’ve got these earbuds in. Simply speak to Alexa to stream music, play Audible audiobooks, make calls, or get directions. You can use her to set up devices in your smart home or even to order dinner. Being with you at all times is sure to make Alexa support even more practical than before.
The Amazon Echo Buds don’t just stop there though — they also offer active noise reduction technology courtesy of Bose. That means that while these earbuds don’t cancel out all surrounding noises, they do a good job of reducing the sounds around you. In our Amazon Echo Buds review, we found the feature to be very effective at cutting down on background noise when you want to avoid it.
So, what’s the catch? Well, the Amazon Echo Buds don’t offer the best of battery life. It’s just fine with up to 5 hours of music playback per charge with up to 2 hours gained from a quick 15-minute charge. Include the charging case and you get up to 20 hours of listening. That’s good enough but it’s not exactly remarkable in the field any more, although you do need to bear in mind the low price here. For the majority of users, this won’t be a major issue.
Crucially, with a $50 price reduction, the Amazon Echo Buds just got a whole lot more appealing. That works out to nearly 40% off the usual price of $130 which makes these earbuds an even better value than before. If you’re extra keen to have Alexa support wherever you go, these earbuds are a particularly appealing proposition.
