Amazon’s Echo Buds are a decent option for customers looking for a pair of cheap earphones. They not only work with Alexa, but also with Google Assistant and Siri, you just need to press and hold the earbud to access any of the supported assistants.
More importantly, the original Echo Buds come with Active Noise Reduction technology developed by Bose, which promises to offer crisp, dynamic audio while on the move. Unlike many other earphones in the same price tier, they are sweat-resistant, and feature sealed in-ear design to limit background noise.
As far as the battery goes, the Echo Buds (1st Gen) offer up to 5 hours of music playback per charge, up to 2 hours with a 15-minute quick charge, and up to 20 hours with the charging case.
Unfortunately, the earphones are no longer sold by Amazon since the company has already released the second generation. However, if you’re looking for a bargain, Woot has the Echo Buds (1st Gen) on sale for just $40, which would make them $90 cheaper than the retail price.
