Amazon Echo Buds
The Amazon Echo Buds are smaller, lighter, and comfortable, with excellent noise cancellation. They’re sweat-resistant and come with four distinct silicone tip sizes (S, M, L, and XL), as well as three different pairs of optional wingtips. The ear tips are color-coded, making it easier to differentiate between sizes.
Echo Buds, on the other hand, sound amazing regardless of what you’re listening to. You can listen to music and use Alexa hands-free for up to 5 hours on a single charge. They work nicely with the Alexa app, letting you play music, listen to podcasts, and read Audible audiobooks. Finally, the most tempting part of the Echo Buds is their low price – and the exceptional value for money you get in return.

Why is just one of my Echo Buds working?
If only one of your Echo Buds is working, the first thing you can do is make sure both sides are charging.

After that, you can restart Alexa by closing and reopening it. If that doesn’t help, turn on your phone’s Airplane mode, turn it off after a minute and wait for it to finish.
Do I have to keep the case near me when using Echo Buds?
No! The case’s primary use is to charge and store buds. The Echo Buds should be kept in their case when not in use.
