  • - Hey everybody, I am Dieter.

  • We are at Amazon's Fall Hardware Event,

  • and I am holding in my hands the all-new Echo Buds.

  • Now these are 129.99 dollar earbuds

  • and they go in your ear and they sort of noise isolate,

  • but what's special about these, at least for me,

  • isn't necessarily the Alexa integration,

  • it's the Boss integration.

  • These do noise reductions.

  • Not quite noise canceling, but it really is effective.

  • So you put them in your ears and then you double tap,

  • and now you hear all the noise that's happening around me

  • but I don't hear it basically at all.

  • Which is pretty great.

  • But if you're worried about it,

  • you can double tap again.

  • And then you can get pass-through audio.

  • And there's little voice prompts

  • that let you know what it's doing.

  • Now, if you want to use it for the Alexa, you can.

  • You can, of course, just say something like

  • Alexa, what's the weather?

  • And Alexa is now currently telling me the weather.

  • You can ask Alexa to play music, or any other Alexa thing.

  • And when you pull them out of your ear,

  • they auto-pause just like air pods

  • or some other ear buds.

  • Because they have a tiny little optical sensor there.

  • Some other options you can do with this thing,

  • you can actually customize what all are the taps are.

  • By default, a double-tap switches between

  • noise reduction and pass-through.

  • A long press lets you access the

  • digital assistant on your phone.

  • So either Siri or the Google Assistant,

  • depending on your phone.

  • But you can also set them to other things,

  • like track, volume, etc., etc., etc.

  • Now the case here is actually pretty large

  • relative to other wireless earbuds.

  • It charges by micro USB.

  • (sighs)

  • And it doesn't charge wirelessly.

  • These buds will last about five hours

  • on a single charge on their own.

  • Or twenty hours total with the case.

  • And you can also get them fully charged in about an hour.

  • Amazon says that these 130 dollar buds are

  • gonna be available in time for the holiday.

  • But you can pre-order them right now.

  • And I gotta say, 130 bucks for noise almost canceling

  • ear buds is really darn good.

  • And I've listened to just a little bit of

  • music on them, they sound pretty good.

  • But of course, we're gonna need to

  • go out in the world and not inside this

  • demo room to give you a full picture of how they sound.

  • And we hope to do that very soon.

  • There's a lot more happening here at this

  • Amazon event so please keep a lock on the Verge,

  • because there's more videos coming.

- Hey everybody, I am Dieter.
