Affordable price, good sound quality


Bluetooth headset model Amazon Echo Buds that we review today is the second generation version of the product line. To improve product quality compared to the original version of the headset, the manufacturer has reduced the overall size of the charging box (about 40%), and upgraded the performance of active noise cancellation and sound quality.

The new version of the headset also has a few small changes, such as the ability to wirelessly charge the battery or small grooves on the surface of the headset to reduce pressure on the eardrum. listen.

Amazon Echo Buds: Design

The biggest improvement in the external design of the 2nd generation Amazon Echo Buds version is an ever more compact design. The headphones themselves are about 20% smaller than the previous version, while the charging case is reduced to 40% in size, giving it a very different appearance.

The more compact size means that the earphones are also reduced in weight, allowing users to wear them comfortably for a longer period of time.

Another big change is the small slot system located on the inside of the pair of headphones, which has the function of minimizing the level of pressure directly acting on the user’s ears during use. This design was first applied on the Powerbeats Pro product model, and is one of the standard features of True Wireless headphones at the moment.

But despite possessing a compact design and making it more comfortable to wear, the Echo Buds pair of headphones still protrudes slightly from the user’s ears during use.

The Echo Buds are an ideal pair of headphones to use during exercise or running sessions. The reason is that the design of the headphones is IPX4 waterproof and sweatproof, allowing you to enjoy your workout without having to worry about damaging the internal components.

And yet, the pair of headphones also comes with a variety of tips of different sizes, plus several pairs of ear wings that allow you to freely customize for the most comfortable and secure wearing experience.

To control the pair of headphones, you have 2 main options: perform touch controls or command Alexa virtual assistant by voice. For the first control method, you can tap once to play or stop the music; 2 times to skip to the next song or answer a call; and 3 times to return to the previous song.

By default, a long press will change between noise cancellation mode and crosstalk listening mode. This is a pretty useful feature if you need to quickly listen to the sounds of your surroundings without having to remove the headphones from your ears.

The charging box of the pair of headphones has a fairly compact design, allowing you to carry it around easily and conveniently. The only point that we are not satisfied with the box is that the pair of hinges has a not too high level of finishing.

Amazon Echo Buds: Usability Performance

The sound quality of the 2nd generation Echo Buds version is significantly improved compared to the original line of headphones. In the review of the first generation headphones, we said that the bass range of the headphones is a bit too heavy and not clear, while the mid range is not too clear. These limitations have been partially overcome in this version of the headset.

The new version of the headset is equipped with active noise cancellation, providing more flexible use for users. The manufacturer estimates that this feature improves noise cancellation performance by 2 times compared to the original model. This is understandable since the first version of the product line is only equipped with conventional noise cancellation.

However, the active noise cancellation feature of the Echo Buds is not very impressive, especially when compared to higher-end models. This feature has the ability to block out the noise emitted in your home. However, when used in crowded public places, the limitation of this feature will be clearly shown.

The point that surprised us most when talking about the Echo Buds’ noise canceling feature is that this feature can work when you take a phone call. Our actual usage shows that the voice quality of the speaker and listener is very well represented in normal phone calls.

Amazon Echo Buds: Battery life

The battery life of the Amazon Echo Buds is at an acceptable level. According to the manufacturer, the Echo Buds have an estimated battery life of about 5 hours when used with active noise cancellation, and the charging case can be recharged for 10 hours of usage time. this situation. The above battery life figure is quite accurate compared to what we recorded through actual use.

To improve battery life, you can turn off the noise cancellation feature of the headphones. The battery life of the Echo Buds in this case will be about 6 hours and 30 minutes.
