Amazon continues to expand across a variety of tech categories, including true wireless earbuds with its new, second-generation Echo Buds, which are now available in Canada.
The Amazon Echo Buds feature premium audio and balanced sound, says the company, along with custom-designed Active Noise Cancellation technology. Like other true wireless earbuds, they can be wirelessly charged and feature microphones for using them with phone calls as well as music, podcast, and Audiobook playback.
Naturally, they also offer hands-free control via Amazon Alexa. Simple ask Alexa to play music, call a friend, family member, or business contact, or even to try a new recipe so you can listen to audible directions, and she will oblige. You can also use Alexa when the buds are connected to your phone to do things like set reminders, add items to your shopping list, start a meditation session, and more. The Buds do support Google Assistant and Siri as well,
They are lightweight and sweat-resistant and offer up to five hours of battery life per charge, up to 15 with the included charging case. Pop them inside for 15 minutes to get an additional up to two hours of listening time.
The new Amazon Echo Buds will be available in Black or Glacier White starting at $155, and are now available for pre-order.
