Amazon's new true wireless headphones have a design similar to what we're used to, in black. While not the smallest wireless headphones on the market, they are quite lightweight: 7.6g per headset. The case, also black, is quite small and weighs 70g.
In terms of specifications, Echo Earbuds have Bluetooth 5.0, active noise reduction from the hand of Bose, IPX4 protocol for splash resistance and up to 5 hours of autonomy (joined to about 15 hours if we are carrying them with the case.
They also have an accelerometer, proximity sensor, and tactile control; besides the most important thing, the total integration with Alexa simply by means of the voice. It also includes compatibility with Google Assistant and Siri via touch control.
The price? It will be €122.90, and can already be booked. They will go on sale next October 30th.
Samsung's alternative, similar in size to the Amazon Echo Earbuds, is available in three colors: black, white and yellow. Their case is smaller and is compatible, in addition to Siri, Google Assistant, and Alexa, with Bixby (Samsung's personal assistant).
On a technical level, they grant up to 6 hours of autonomy, something more than their rivals, and have IPX2 resistance protocol. They also have in-ear pads and a case compatible with QI wireless charging, so you can charge it with a charger or device with this technology.
The price is €149 on the official Samsung website, but you can find something cheaper on.
Although they were criticized for the lack of differences with the first generation, it is clear that AirPods are the most important wireless headphones in the current scenario, both by trend and by sales volume.
In terms of design, they differ from the Amazon Echo Earbuds in the lower projection, characteristic of Apple headphones. In addition, they are not in-ear, i.e., they do not have a cushion to fit in our ear. With a weight of 4 g per headset and a case substantially smaller than Amazon's true wireless, AirPods have a similar autonomy: about 5 hours of playback.
We must not forget that the Apple AirPods only have compatibility with Siri. logically they are the ideal companions if you have an iPhone, but, if you do not have it, perhaps you should think twice. And more if you look at the price: 180€.
Recently introduced, the Huawei Freebuds 3 also position themselves as a tough contender for Amazon's new wireless headphones. They have a very similar design to Apple's AirPods, nothing new, and will be available in black and white.
With active noise cancellation as its main feature, the Freebuds 3 has a slightly larger size and weight than the AirPods, and their case has a somewhat unusual circular shape. They have Bluetooth 5.1 and can give us a little more than 4 hours of autonomy, a negative point against their rivals.
As for their price and availability, they are still unknown, but we imagine that it will be around 130 or 150€, as well as their direct rivals. Let's hope they don't take too long to be launched. Let's imagine.
As a special mention, Sony WF-1000XM3, high-quality true wireless, with spectacular noise cancellation, the autonomy of up to 6 hours and a sound of 10. They are at a price of 249€.
