The Amazon Echo Buds release with a price under $130 at And they come with a strong charging case. Expect that, amazon will begin to release this product into its market at the end of October this year (2019).

Next, go on to the Amazon Echo Buds review.

Amazon Echo Buds Review – Design for fit

The look is not fashionable, black color design but simple look and seamless. They feel secure and fit enough when wearing them while walking or working.

When it comes to IPX rating (water resistants of earbuds), the Amazon Echo Buds get rated IPX4 against sweat and little rain. So, this product does not suit swimming and any activity which faces truly water.

Whether your ears are big, middle, or small size, the Amazon wireless earbuds will fit your ears. Because in the package, you will get three sizes of ear tips to fit and comfortable in-ear seals for your favorite songs.

Battery and Charging

Echo Buds review

The Amazon Echo Buds are designed to be true wireless earbuds, which means there is no wire connecting between the left and right earpieces or your playback device. Because of their battery on both left and right earpieces. They can play music continuously for 5 hours per one full charge and total battery life of up to 20 hours with a charging case.

The number 20 hours of battery life is not so longest playtime. I have seen some true wireless earbuds have more battery than the Echo Buds. But, that is enough to take you on your trip, exercise, or run in the evening. However; if you focus on battery life try other wireless earbuds such as Earfun Air Pro true wireless earbuds (last up to 32 hours) or Earfun Air wireless earbuds (last up to 35 hours).

Quick charge is another good point of Echo Buds, you can get an additional 3 hours for listening to music just only from charging for 5 minutes.

Echo Buds and Sound quality

If you have read the Amazon Echo Buds review from another site. You may know that Amazon working with the Bose team to offer Active Noise Canceling technology for the Echo Buds. That’s pretty effective to reduce every ambient noise. However, probably still a bit audible at sometimes.

The one thing that I feel is that the Amazon Echo Buds delivered balanced audio but seemed they give a little on the bass.

Alexa and Voice Assistant

The Amazon Echo Buds can work with Alexa App to control smart home devices, play music, and do many things like asking about the weather. Besides, there are many things that you can use benefits from Alexa, such as asking for directions, setting or checking your reminder, and checking the calendar.

Besides Alexa, Echo Buds can very easy-to-use voice assistants, just touch and hold the buds to access the voice assistant whether Google Assistant or Siri on your smart devices.
