We just reviewed the Echo Buds ($130)*, Amazon's first foray into the popular new product category of "true wireless" headphones. The twist is these earbuds have Alexa, the "always on" voice assistant that can play music, turn on your lights and tell you the weather.

We expect the price of the Echo Buds to drop this month, especially around Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Stay tuned on Ben's and remember to set a deal alert!

Read more on The CheckOut...

*Update: Amazon has a trade-in offer that knocks the price down to $98.

Complete piece of junk! Received it last week and sent it back immediately. Ugly, bulky, cheapo, with crappy ANR (it is noise reduction, not cancellation). Amazon is not hardware company

Was hoping for better review(s). Will have to wait on this until they fix (if?) the issues pointed out.

these are awesome. They have Bose quality and Alexa -- I love them for a number of reasons, including the fact that they have a snug fit.

Thank you.

dude - the double-tap feature turns noise reduction on/off. they have 3 sizes of wing tips that allow you to pick the right size for your elephant ears. I guess you prolly didn't hear that, being that the actual hardware resembles the size of the Bose buds that just happen to have been around for a while and these are based on. Oh yeah, with Alexa integration the entire life experience changes for the better.

This comment is on the category of "true wireless" headphones in general, not Echo Buds specifically. I truly don't understand the value. I'd lose one in a hot second. If I couldn't ping my phone I'd be buying a new one every week at minimum. I guess only fastidious people are geared to make use of such a product.

I also got an offer for the Echo Eyeglass Frames, which function much like the ear buds.

Ben's review stated that bass is not good which is a deal killer for me.

Their prime phone was garbage. I wouldn’t expect anything better than a cheap pair of Sony ear buds.

These look so cool, and I have heard great things about Amazon Echo products, and as much as Alexa comes in handy from time to time, these look like they would be a great guy, especially when Black Friday deals kick in.
