Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) review

The Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) are a great pair of true wireless earbuds that are priced to compete with Apple’s AirPods.

However, it has a variety of user-friendly features such as ANC, many fit choices, and improved performance in some areas. For most people, this is the superior option if you’re seeking for the most bang for your buck.

ANC is a feature that will improve the quality of your music while reducing the amount of noise that is around you. ANC will reduce the amount of background noise by up to 50%, which makes it ideal for travel.

The sound quality of these earphones is also very impressive, with a rich bass and clear treble. However, if you are looking for the best sounding true wireless earbuds, you should look elsewhere.

The battery life on these earphones is also pretty impressive, with a battery life of 5 hours at full volume and 10 hours at half volume. This can easily be solved by charging them once per day, and also using them less often than Apple’s AirPods.

The biggest issue with these earbuds is that they are designed to be used in conjunction with an Amazon Echo device. This means that it’s not possible to use them without an Echo device in your home or office; however, this can easily be solved by purchasing and setting up an Echo device yourself (see below).

Pros and Cons

·          Pros:

  • Great price for what you’re getting.
  • Excellent sound quality and ANC.
  • Good battery life (5-10 hours) at half volume.

·         Cons:

  • Only compatible with Amazon Echo devices.
  • No support for Bluetooth connectivity.
  • No Apple AirPlay compatibility.

The only way to use these earbuds is to purchase and set up an Amazon Echo device, which can be purchased for as little as $50 (see below).

What’s it like to use the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen)?

The Echo Buds (2nd Gen) are designed to be used in conjunction with an Amazon Echo device, and this is the best way to experience them. While they can be used without an Echo device by pairing them with your phone, it’s not possible to use these earphones without a device that can recognize voice commands.

This means that you will need to purchase and set up an Echo device yourself in order for these earphones to function properly.

These earphones are also very easy to use and install. Simply remove the buds from their packaging, take off the plastic film, and attach them into your ears. Then you’ll need to pair the buds with your phone using Bluetooth or NFC (depending on which version of the buds you purchased).

The buds can be paired with up to 5 different devices simultaneously, which makes it easy to switch between devices while listening too music or making calls without having to pair each time.

After pairing, you should activate Alexa by saying “Alexa” followed by a command such as: “Alexa play music.” Alexa will respond by playing a song that she finds relevant for you based on usage patterns.

You can also ask her questions about news items or weather forecasts; however, she won’t answer any other questions unless she recognizes your voice through speech recognition software or if asked via text message.

How to control the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen)

While the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) are designed to be used with an Amazon Echo device, they can also be controlled using voice commands. This means that you can control the volume of music and calls without having to touch your phone, which makes them much easier to use than other Bluetooth earphones.

To do this, simply say “Alexa play music” or “Alexa pause” followed by a command such as: “Alexa play music on my phone,” “Alexa pause on my phone,” or whatever you’d like your buds to do for you.

You can also ask Alexa questions about news items or weather forecasts; however, she won’t answer any other questions unless she recognizes your voice through speech recognition software or if asked via text message.

If you do not have an Echo device, you can use the Amazon Echo app to control the earbuds. The app will recognize when you say the name of the device, which means that you can switch between devices without having to pair them with your phone every time.

Equalizer control

The Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) come with an equalizer that allows you to adjust the sound. By default, the buds are set to deliver a flat sound, which means that they produce the same sound in all frequencies.

This is useful for listening to music and other audio content without any distortions or overtones. However, if you prefer a more lively sound, you can adjust your equalizer to deliver bass-heavy tones and increase the overall volume of your music.

You can also use your voice to change the equalizer settings. To do this, say “Alexa play” followed by any command such as “Alexa play on my phone,” “Alexa play at low volumes,” or whatever you’d like your buds to do for you.

To control the equalizer, simply say “Alexa play on my phone” followed by a command such as: “Alexa play at low volumes,” or whatever you’d like your buds to do for you.

Remember that you can always adjust the equalizer manually if it doesn’t work for you. To do this, simply turn your buds around so that the logo is facing away from you and then press and hold the button on the left bud. You can also use this method to turn off the equalizer altogether.

Power saving mode

The Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) can be turned into a power-saving mode by turning on the feature. To do this, say “Alexa save battery” followed by a command such as: “Alexa save battery on my phone,” or whatever you’d like your buds to do for you.

You can also use the Alexa app to make sure that your buds are in power-saving mode. Simply open the app and tap on the menu icon in the top right corner. Then, select Settings and make sure that Power Saving Mode is enabled.

To turn off power saving mode, simply say “Alexa power off” followed by a command such as: “Alexa save battery on my phone,” or whatever you’d like your buds to do for you.

Remember that you can always turn off power saving mode manually if it doesn’t work for you. To do this, simply turn your buds around so that the logo is facing away from you and then press and hold the button on the left bud until it turns off.

Conclusion

The Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) are a great pair of wireless earbuds. They have excellent sound quality and are easy to use. You can also control your music, adjust the equalizer and even power off your buds using the Alexa app. Overall, these headphones are worth their price and will work well for most users.
