  • Smaller and better fit
  • Hands-free Alexa access
  • Improved ANC performance
  • Maintains EQ support
  • Great support on both iOS and Android
  • Faster charging


  • No real difference in battery life
  • No multipoint Bluetooth
  • Finicky touch controls

The debut Echo Buds don’t look to be here for long, as Amazon looks to go all-in on the second-generation successors. But since they’re still available, you can decide whether the sequel is worth it, so long as you accept that these earbuds come firmly in second place here.
