We previously named the Echo Buds our favorite budget pick of 2021, and for good reason. Mashable reporter Alex Perry praised their active noise-canceling ability in his review, which is worth the purchase price alone. They come with thumping bass and decent treble, and most listeners will come away pleased with their audio quality. Their five-hour battery life isn’t particularly impressive, but the charging case gives 15 hours of charge (or three full listening sessions) without having to be plugged in.
The Echo Dot (which you get for free with this deal) is a useful smart speaker that’s small enough to fit wherever you need it. It can help automate smart home commands, play music, let you interact with Alexa, and much more. It has a decently loud speaker as well, which makes it viable for smaller spaces. And with the Echo Buds’ Alexa integration, you can issue commands on the go. That’s smart home synergy at its best.
