Amazon announced the launch of the second generation of Echo Buds, so the new wireless earbuds have been improved over the original version with a more ergonomic design (20% volume reduction) and improved active noise reduction.

The price of the earbuds and USB-C port charging case for the 2021 Echo Buds wireless earbuds is $ 119.99. If the charging box is upgraded to the wireless charging version, the price is $ 139.99.

Amazon offers discounts for a limited time. The regular set price will be reduced to $ 99.99 and the wireless group price will be reduced to $ 119.99. The new Echo Buds will be released on May 13th.

In addition to reducing the size, Amazon has also made some design changes that focus on the comfort of Echo Buds, as the speaker now features a design with openings like AirPods Pro and Pixel Buds that can be used to reduce unnecessary hearing pressure.

The company shortened it so the Echo Buds wouldn't go too deep into the ear canal, reducing the outer depth to increase flow, and the earbuds - which include four sizes - are now oval.

Now, the outward facing is no longer the smooth tactile surface of the original Echo Buds - it's rather matte.

Amazon put a logo on the headphones this time, and the headphones are not only black, but white as well.

The company said that the second-generation headphones can remove twice as much noise as before, and the Transition Mode lets you adjust the amount of ambient noise you want to transmit.

According to an Amazon press release, the sound quality has also been improved: Echo Buds provide clear, balanced sound and a wide dynamic range, so you can get the most out of your music, regardless of type.

The statement added: The speaker has been improved to improve the accuracy of low-frequency sounds, reduce distortion during media playback, and produce gentle tone and clear sound.

The second-generation Echo Buds are water and sweat resistant. Amazon said: Compared to the previous generation of headphones, the microphones on these headphones have also been upgraded to pick up the lower frequencies for better quality audio calls.

Battery life is estimated when the noise canceling function is activated after 5 hours of listening, and it will take a total of 15 hours when charging twice.

The protective case now contains LED status lights for each individual earphone. If the battery is nearly empty, you can play for about 2 hours after 15 minutes of charging via USB-C.

Amazon hopes that a large part of the Echo Buds appeal is the ability to use Alexa anywhere.

Amazon announced that it will add a VIP filtering feature later this year, which was first shown by Echo Frames. This feature allows you to choose which notifications you want to listen to and skip the remaining ones.
