Amazon’s latest Echo Buds dropped below $ 100 for the first time since Prime Day. Best buy offers active noise canceling headphones for $ 80, up from their regular $ 120 price tag. Alexa-powered buds were already affordable, but the latest deal should help influence neutrality. Moreover, they were released only in April.
Amazon has improved its Echo Buds in all the right places with the second generation model. With the Alexa app set up correctly, you can amplify the sound and take full advantage of the powerful bass thanks to the new high-performance 5.7mm driver. Amazon’s digital assistant can also perform a range of tasks, from playing music and podcasts to setting reminders and even getting transportation information for some US cities.
The overhaul extends to the design as well. Headphones and charging case are 20 percent and 40 percent smaller, respectively. However, at this price, some decline can be expected. One of the few areas that remains unchanged is battery life, which offers five hours in total and two hours in just 15 minutes of charging. The only other drawback is that the bumps do not always block the noisy background on calls. But with a little tweak in the app, you can raise your voice to overcome this.
