Garbage. Worked for 5 minutes and now nothing. I’ve reset them and still nothing. All I hear with pass through is white noise. When putting in the left ear, there was a very high pitch sound. Talk about damaging ears. These will be returned.
I bought these after owning the 1st Gen Echo buds, and these are a huge improvement! Better sound, an upgrade to full ANC (instead of just "noise reduction"). The earbuds seem smaller and the case is WAY smaller. Priced way below earbuds with comparable specs.

The Echo Buds cannot read incoming texts, but it does give you an alert that you got a message. You can make calls and send messages from the Echo Buds just by asking Alexa. I hope that information helps. Have a great day!
A:AnswerHello Raymond49er! Thanks for your question! You can absolutely use these Echo Buds one at a time. You are even able to still utilize the noise cancelling feature with only one Echo Bud in as well. I hope this helps and you have an awesome day!
A:AnswerHello RK200! The full access required for the Echo Buds is so that you can utilize Alexa to do tasks such as making a phone call, telling you the weather, letting you know what is next on your calendar, etc. In order to listen to music only you do not need to allow access. By allowing access to these on your handset, you will have full access to the suite of features that come with Alexa. These permissions would be accepted used through use of the Alexa app necessary to set the Echo Buds up. I hope this clarifies further for you and answers your question! Have an amazing day!
The Echo Buds are just like any other bluetooth headphones, with the exception of a few things like they have Alexa built into them for hands free help. As long as the device you would like to connect them to has Bluetooth capability, yes, you can connect them to the device. I hope this information helps. Have a great day.
