Echo Buds Return Smaller and More Efficient
Amazon has persisted their efforts to edge out the competition (Apple) by upgrading the Echo Buds with a near-future return. Jeff Bezo’s company guarantees some of the features found in Apple’s $249.99 AirPods Pro.
The Buds will launch on May 13th in “white and black” colors. It’s well reported that these enhanced earpieces will be $99 for the regular model (by pre-ordering), then come in at a standard $119.99 for a version with a wireless charging case (on the launch date).
The new product will be 20% smaller than the preceding earpiece — while still posing a shorten nozzle, vent, and it will retain the IPX4 rating which is very repellant for sweat and water. The case is also reported to be 40% smaller. The two buds will come in two classic colors: Black or Glacier White.
The most polarizing aspect of the new version of the Echo Buds lies in the full active noise cancellation — the company promises 2x of what the original display. No thanks to an expired relationship with Adobe, Amazon went ahead with creating a more resilient noise eliminator. One of the more necessary additions is also in play for the Echo Buds: a VIP filter. It will let you strategically choose what notifications you want to hear aloud.
