Critic Reviews


Macworld

An excellent value plagued by small annoyances

from Macworld

A good value for the money, but not as refined as its competitors in the premium wireless earbud market. A good choice for those married to the Alexa ecosystem.

Expect some growing pains with these Alexa-enabled noise reduction earbuds

The Amazon Echo Buds bring a lot to the table and with a much more attainable price than the direct competition. Bose’s active noise reduction technology works rather well to reduce background noise and the featherweight earbuds are comfortable for day-long listening. If you’re ok with Alexa knowing even more about you, these earbuds are a bargain.

Active Noise Reduction at a good price

from MajorHifi

The Echo Buds have left me with a mixed impression. If we forget for a moment that they’re the only earbuds with built-in Alexa integration, what are we left with?

The Echo Buds have left me with a mixed impression. If we forget for a moment that they’re the only earbuds with built-in Alexa integration, what are we left with? Battery life, fit, design, and sound quality are all middle-of-the-road average. The Noise Cancellation is great, but the Bluetooth controls are not. If the price were $99, the Echo Buds would be amazing. But they’re only $20-$30 cheaper than the next shelf up in true wireless. If you don’t use Alexa, I can’t really imagine why you’d want these over a slightly pricier alternative.

Alexa lays a smackdown

from Digital Trends

At $130, the Amazon Echo Buds are a great value. It’s their sheer number of useful features, like hands-free Alexa access and awesome Bose ANR, that make them a great purchase.

Wired

The company's first wirefree earbuds let you take Alexa anywhere

from Wired

You might want wirefree buds with more than the five hours of battery life, or with earfins that aren’t annoyingly difficult to put on correctly. You might want touch controls that always work. The Echo Buds can frustrate in these basic ways, but with Alexa they're still quite usable, and they sound fantastic.

Sound that rivals AirPods, plus Alexa on the go

from Cnet

The Echo Buds are likable earbuds with always-on Alexa and solid Bose-powered noise reduction -- just consider waiting until they're on sale before buying them.

Great sound at the right price

Apple’s noise-canceling AirPods Pro are no doubt going to have a huge impact on the wireless earbuds category, but Amazon has managed to do a lot right on its first time out.

Apple’s noise-canceling AirPods Pro are no doubt going to have a huge impact on the wireless earbuds category, but Amazon has managed to do a lot right on its first time out. And I think the $130 price is going to hit the right buttons for a lot of people when they’re comparing the Echo Buds against $200 and $250 options from other brands.

Put Alexa in your ears

from Business Insider

The Echo Buds feel good, they sound good, and talking to Alexa without pressing any buttons feels very convenient. Their sound and noise reduction is at least comparable to those of Apple's AirPods.

Good sound quality and battery life

from Stuff

As they enter an increasingly overcrowded market, it’s too early to say whether or not the Echo Buds will be a success. But when you marry their impressive feature set with the low price, you’d be surprised if they weren’t.

If good voice control is something you crave in a pair of wireless earbuds, then it seems pretty clear you'll be wanting to audition the Amazon Echo Buds. Amazon's a little late to the party compared to many rivals, but price point and feature set both appear competitive for the money. However, it's the audio quality that will really need to stand up to scrutiny.
