Since the release of Apple’s iconic AirPod, the market for truly wireless earbuds has seen constant contention. Numerous companies have admitted their own take on the personalized peripheral, seeking to steal the show from the industry’s leading proprietor; but few iterations have come as close to the throne as Amazon’s newly-introduced Echo Buds.

With a company like Amazon at their back, the Echo Buds hope to provide a capable alternative for consumers who aren’t ready to buy into the Apple ecosystem. As you might expect, the company has found a way to integrate a number of proprietary features, including seamless access to hands-free Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant, customizable fit options that are tailored to different ear sizes, and Bose Active Noise Reduction technology to keep you focused on the task at hand. With up to five hours of battery life, an IPX4 water resistance rating, and a comfortable, in-ear seal to keep the Echo Buds secure, they’re the perfect pair of capable headphones to utilize at the gym, in the office, or on the trail. Head to Amazon’s website to pre-order the Echo Buds for $130, before their October 30 launch date.
