Amazon Echo Buds Offer Alexa, Bose ANR, Passthrough Mode
Amazon's new Echo Buds are true wireless Bluetooth earbuds with Amazon's Alexa voice assistant, although they are also compatible with Siri and Google Assistant. Using three microphones in each bud, they offer Bose Active Noise Reduction, as well as Passthrough Mode for bringing in ambient noise when desired. Each bud has two premium, balanced armature drivers for better sound. They're rated IPX4 to withstand "splashes, sweat, or light rain." The buds alone last 4-5 hours, and the case provides three additional charges. Using Alexa requires the Alexa app on your connected phone. Echo Buds will cost $130. They are available for pre-order now and will ship October 30th.
