Hear ye, hear ye: Your favorite wireless earbuds got better! Amazon has just announced second-generation Echo Buds

New for 2021, the latest earbuds from the retail giant introduce a wireless charging case and active noise-canceling (features that were not available with the extremely popular first-gen). Now you can enjoy your favorite music and podcasts in peace — free from annoying background noise.

If that sounds good to you, then you can score a pair for $100 (with standard charging case) or $120 (with wireless charging case) for a limited time. These are the introductory period prices. After the period is over, the prices will go up to $120 and $140, respectively.

Bonus: They come with a six-month free trial to Audible Plus for unlimited audiobook access! Preorder now. The new Echo Buds drop on May 13.

Shop it: Echo Buds (second generation) with standard charging case, $100 (was $120) | with wireless charging case, $120 (was $140), amazon.com

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Here's the lowdown:

Comfort meets durability

The second-gen earbuds are built for long-lasting comfort with a new, sleeker design that fits securely in your ears (unlike Apple AirPods). They're sweat-resistant too, so feel free to wear them during your next power workout or five-mile run. These babies are durable and tough, with up to 15 hours of battery life per charge (and an extra two hours with a 15-minute quick charge). 

Crystal-clear audio

They also deliver high-quality audio that's well-balanced and clear with deep bass to get the most out of your tunes, podcasts, audiobooks and phone calls when synced to an Android smartphone or Apple iPhone. The new Echo Buds work great with both!

Alexa inside

And best of all, your trusty Alexa voice assistant is built-in. You'll have seamless voice controls, as well as the latest news reports, weather updates and sports scores accessible with the sound of your voice. Just ask!

The new Echo Buds also come in Black and Glacier White for both the standard case and wireless charging case models.
