Amazon halves the price of its wireless headphones with ANC

Released earlier this year, the second-generation Amazon Echos Buds have had limited success. But with a price going from 119.99 euros to only 59.99 euros, or -50%, the retailer hopes to make them much more attractive.

We were not entitled to the first generation of Echo Buds made by Amazon in France. But the most powerful retailer in the world has not forgotten to go through our beautiful country with regard to the second generation of its wireless headphones. And if they were considered a bit expensive for their release at the beginning of the year, it is possible to find them at half price, in their classic version and with the induction charging box.

The strengths of the second generation Echo Buds

  • Full Alexa ecosystem integration
  • Convincing sound dynamics
  • Compelling activity tracking

Initially sold at 119.99 euros, the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd gen) are now available at half price from the retailer, i.e. 59.99 euros.

We also find the same reduction for the model accompanied by a wireless charging box: they thus go from 139.99 euros to 69.99 euros.

A pleasant choice of format for comfortable true wireless

The Amazon Echos Buds 2 largely take up what made the success of Samsung’s Galaxy Buds: a rounded bean-shaped design that offers excellent support when placed in the ears. They come with silicone tips to help them fit better in the auricular pavilion. The Echo Buds 2 are IPX4 certified, which ensures that they are resistant to splashes, sweat and rain.

They also have controls on their surfaces that can be configured via Amazon’s Alexa app. The voice assistant is also central to the use of the Echo Buds, because the entire connected ecosystem can be managed simply by wearing the headphones, such as turning your connected light bulbs on or off, playing music on Amazon Music or Spotify, programming a alarm or reminder. In short, everything is controllable by voice and it simplifies everyday life.

We are far from the best headphones with ANC, but the sound is convincing

The Echo Buds 2 have active noise reduction, which is supposed to erase surrounding noise when listening. This reduction will however be a bit average, since it only removes light noise in the surroundings, and will not be able to filter out louder sounds in the middle of the street, for example. On the other hand, it may be suitable for those who above all wish to isolate themselves from ambient noise that is not very intrusive, such as in an office for example. The transparency mode is much more convincing.

The Echo Buds 2 are compatible with SBC and AAC on the Bluetooth codec side, but aptX or LDAC. For the sound quality itself, it is more focused on the mediums, with a satisfactory dynamic. Finally, on the autonomy side, the brand announces an autonomy of five hours by activating the noise reduction, 6.5 hours without. A duration that can go up to 15 hours thanks to the charging case.
