Amazon Introduces All-New Echo Earbuds—Smaller, Lighter, Even Better Sound—Just $119.99
The all-new Echo Earbuds are 20% smaller and deliver dynamic audio with Amazon’s custom-designed Active Noise Cancellation technology for better music or podcast listening.
The ear buds come with a Hands-free Alexa on-the-go—just ask to get playlists and podcasts, make calls, get updates on your train or bus status, find your buds and more.
The New Echo Buds are available in Black or Glacier White, with a redesigned compact case that offers wireless charging capabilities.
Purchasing this product means you’re helping the earth because the buds are made of 20% recycled black material, 98% of the device’s packaging is made of wood fibre from responsibly managed forests or recycled items. Amazon is also creating solar and wind farms to provide clean energy, equivalent to the energy produced by the new Ear Buds.
What a way of enjoying podcasts and helping the planet in a sustainable way!
“It’s never been easier for customers to bring Alexa with them throughout their day—whether at home, walking the neighbourhood, or commuting to work, all they have to do is ask to play music or podcasts, call to check in on a loved one, add an item to their to-do list, and so much more.” – says Tom Taylor, Senior Vice President, Amazon Alexa.
Built with a high-performance driver in each earbud, Echo Earbuds deliver crisp, balanced sound with extended dynamic range—so you get the most out of your music or podcast. The premium speakers are optimized for increased fidelity in bass and treble, which reduces distortion during media playback, delivering vibrant melodies and clear spoken word.
Featuring Amazon’s new Active Noise Cancellation technology, the all-new Echo Buds cancel twice as much noise compared to the first generation, making them ideal for when you’re on the go or quiet in a library or at home.
To turn on Active Noise Cancellation, simply press and hold either earbud or just say, “Alexa, turn on noise cancellation.” When you want to hear what’s going on around you, enable Passthrough Mode with a press and hold on either earbud or by saying, “Alexa, turn on Passthrough.”
Listen to podcasts using Amazon Echo earbuds
You can already ask Alexa for podcast recommendations and soon, you’ll be able to listen to podcasts you follow on Amazon Music by just saying, “Alexa, play my followed podcasts.” You can also ask Alexa to play music for a set amount of time. When you want to take a short walk to soak in the sun, simply say, “Alexa, play relaxing music for 15 minutes.” When the tunes stop, it’s your cue to head home.
Echo Buds offer up to five hours of music playback on a single charge with active noise cancellation and hands-free access to Alexa. Purchase your set of Amazon Echo earbuds and you get unlimited music (qualifying customers only).
