Amazon’s new Echo Buds hit a record-low price in an early Prime Day deal

    SAVE $15: As of June 28, the new Amazon Echo Buds(opens in a new tab) are on sale for $34.99 as part of a Prime-exclusive deal. That’s a discount of 30% off their suggested retail price of $49.99, and their lowest price yet,

    Vigilant shoppers may recall that Amazon knocked $10 off the price of its new Echo Buds(opens in a new tab) during their preorder phase back in late May and early June. If you missed out on that offer, worry not: These bad boys just got even cheaper as part of an early Prime Day deal.

    As of June 28, members of Amazon’s Prime subscription service(opens in a new tab) can snag a pair of Echo Buds on sale for just $34.99 — a 30% discount on their $49.99 MSRP and their lowest price to date. (Non-members still have to pay full price, FYI.)


    Prime Day 2023 isn’t for a few weeks, but these deals aren’t waiting

    Announced as part of a surprise refresh of the Echo lineup in mid-May, these new Buds are effectively a pared-down, entry-level version of the Echo Buds from 2021 (now called “Echo Buds with Active Noise Cancellation” — they’re also on sale(opens in a new tab) for Prime members ahead of Amazon’s flagship summer savings event). Their simpler semi-in-ear design features a built-in Alexa voice assistant for hands-free control in addition to individual tap controls that can be customized via the Alexa app. They also support multipoint pairing, which means you can switch between two Bluetooth devices (like a phone and a laptop) without needing to re-pair them.

    The new Echo Buds’ most obvious shortcoming is their battery life: They last a meager five hours per charge. On the plus side, they come with a charging case that holds an extra 20 hours of playback. Said case also has a 15-minute fast charging feature for up to two hours of juice on the fly.

    Mashable hasn’t reviewed the Echo Buds, but our comrades at PCMag(opens in a new tab) (which is owned by our publisher, Ziff Davis) gave them a solid 4/5: “If you do prefer an open-ear design and are willing to fiddle with the fit, these earbuds can provide a quality audio experience after all, and they offer plenty of personalization options, too,” writes Contributing Editor Tim Gideon.
