Amazon Echo Buds Wireless Earbuds
Amazon’s own Echo Ear Buds with Alexa interaction!
Echo Buds Wireless Earbuds: Last but not least we are at the final stage and comparison of our headphones review. This list can’t be complete without a pair of earbuds. Over the last years these little friends have become more and more popular thanks to their size. They are easy to carry and barely noticeable when you are wearing them. Although, if you lose things very easily, especially small ones you might want to be extra careful with them! Since they are made by Amazon, they fully support the Alexa Software as well as the most popular streaming Apps like Apple Music, Spotify and Pandora.
Compared to our #1 and #2 on the list, the Echo buds have the best microphone option of the 3 as well as the best immersive sound system. Each earbud has 3 different mics so the other end can hear your voice clearly. Compared to the other 2 models as well, they have the newest technology available in the market with sensors that even recognize if you have them on or not and pausing any music or audio you are listening to. The Echo Buds have by far most of the characteristics people look for, the only downside? They can be pricey. Which can also be an issue with what we mentioned earlier, losing one earbud (or both) will definitely hurt your wallet.

- 3 microphones for each earbud
- Supports Amazon Alexa software
