Just when you thought Amazon had the interactive home electronics market all but cornered, the consumer mega-giant has just announced another wave of awesome devices. Our friends at Gizmodo are already pumped about the all-new Echo Buds, a $40 alternative to Apple’s AirPods that may reset the earbud market entirely. The small-yet-robust Alexa-powered Echo Pop speaker will be one of the hottest buys of the season at just $40, and the Echo Show line of touchscreen smart speakers gets two new entries: the 3rd Gen Echo Show 5 and the upgraded Echo Show Kids.
New Amazon Devices | $40 - $100 | Amazon
The Echo Buds are $40 during their introductory period, after which they will settle in at $50 — still vastly more affordable than the AirPods. People with privacy concerns will love the Echo Pop speaker’s microphone-off button, which allows you to keep enjoying your music or podcast without concern that the device is picking up your conversation. And both the new Echo Show 5 and Echo Show Kids come with a faster processor, an additional mic for Alexa interaction, and vastly improved audio. The Echo Show Kids still comes with a free year of Amazon Kids+ and easy-to-use parental controls. Amazon’s all-star lineup of devices has gotten even better — check it out now!
