Amazon is one of the largest companies in the world. I mean, we all know that. I feel like I’ve written about Amazon so much, but they just keep coming out with new things. What’s their newest thing you might ask? Well, it’s their second-generation Echo Buds.

Amazon first launched Echo Buds in October of 2019. They were these small and cool looking ear buds that were Bluetooth and had a snug fit, but they couldn’t compete with Apple’s AirPods. Apple was such a large brand that by the time Echo Buds came out, everyone already had a pair of AirPods.

However, this second-generation might be a game changer. Like all Amazon products, Alexa is in your ear and ready to give you all the information you need. From navigation to controlling what you’re listening to, Alexa can help you with anything and everything. Not only is Alexa a nice benefit, but these Echo Buds have noise cancellation, they’re smaller than the AirPods, and they’re rumored to have a better sound quality.

Amazon Echo Buds 2 launches on May 13th of this year for $100.00, which is half the price of AirPods and $50.00 cheaper than the AirPod Pros. And with all that added together, Apple might really have a competitor on their hands.

Be that as it may, Apple still has some tricks up their sleeves. We all know that the recent Apple Event didn’t have any information on new earbuds, however I think that they are going to drop something this year that will blow everyone out of the water (in typical Apple fashion). And let’s just say it, no one can really compare to Apple. They are a continuously growing company that come up with new ways to excite us all.
