Amazon unveiled its next-generation Echo Buds back in mid-May alongside the new Echo Pop smart speaker and we are tracking the first post-launch discount. The new Echo Buds deliver a budget-friendly smart earbuds experience you can score for the summer down at $39.99 shipped. Regularly $50, this is matching the pre-order discount we saw at launch and the best price we have tracked since. Even at $50 they are quite competitively priced if you ask me. As you’ll know for our initial feature, they sport 20 total hours of wireless battery life with the included charging case (plus an extra 2 hours with a 15-minute quick charge), a pair of microphones with “voice detection accelerometer for crystal clear communication,” and direct access to Alexa on-the-go so you can “cue music, play podcasts, listen to Audible, make calls, set reminders,” and more. They also support access to Siri and Google Assistant on iOS and Android. From there, you’ll find customizable tap controls on each earbud and “seamless” switching between a pair of audio source devices. Everything you need to know is in our launch coverage and then head below for more Echo Buds deals.
