Amazon Echo Buds Puts Alexa in Your Ear

Amazon Echo Buds are truly wireless earphones that combine the convenience of hands-free Alexa voice functionality with Bose Active Noise Reduction.

Hands-Free Alexa With Bose Audio Technology

Amazon recently announced Echo Buds, which are truly wireless earbuds that combine Bose Active Noise Reduction Technology and hands-free access to Alexa on-the-go. With a tap and hold, they can be used to talk to Siri on iPhone or Google Assistant on Android smartphones. However, it’s the always-on convenience of just asking Alexa that sets them apart from AirPods and Google Pixel Buds.

Each earbud has two outer microphones and one inner microphone that work together to reduce ambient noise so Alexa can hear you whether you’re walking to class, on your lunch break, or commuting home on the train. All you have to do is ask to hear your favorite playlist, find the nearest coffee shop, or order an Uber. By late-2019, Alexa will be able to advise what’s in-stock at Whole Foods Market and which department and aisle to find it in.

Echo Buds have two premium, balanced armature drivers in each earbud—the driver design is inspired by in-ear monitors used by professional musicians, to deliver crisp, clear vocals and dynamic bass. This design makes Echo Buds perfect for listening to your favorite music, Audible book, podcast, or radio station. Plus, with Bose Active Noise Reduction Technology, you can choose to minimize the noise around you. If you’re in a crowded coffee shop or working in an open office space, double tap either earbud to turn Active Noise Reduction on. When you are walking down a busy street or at the train station—places where you want to hear the world around you—double tap either earbud again to turn Passthrough Mode on.

Echo Buds come with three different sized ear tips and wing tips for a secure fit you can wear throughout your day. Each earbud is IPX4-rated to withstand splashes, sweat, or light rain. And with one full charge, Echo Buds have up to five hours of music playback or four hours of call time. The included charging case holds up to three additional charges—15 hours of music playback or 12 hours of call time. Echo Buds connect to Alexa through the Alexa app on your mobile device and use your existing device’s data plan to access a range of features such as music, navigation, calling, and more.

Price & Availability

Amazon Echo Buds will be available October 30, 2019 for $129.99 at Amazon.com.
