reviews and today we're gonna take a look at the
Amazonand you heard it right they are the best sounding year but as I
reviewfor 130 bucks let's get right to it and this video we're gonna do an unboxing
echoBud's not only will we do the unboxing and we'll take a look at the audio
qualityas well as all the features but we're gonna do an EVP man style
testand I have to tell you spoilers these things sound amazing let's get right to it make sure you hit the subscribe button and tap the little bell icon to get notified when new videos become available now the
Amazon's first true wireless ear
budsand have to say they hit it out of the park taking a look at the box itself pretty simple unboxing you have your ear
budsright here and underneath this you have some additional accessories you do have a micro USB charging cable you heard that right microUSB yoy who knows but it is what it is and it's a very long cable probably one of the longest cable I've seen in a while over here you have accessories so you have a healthy accessories or complement of ear
budsand they're all color-coordinated as you can see here so you have additional your tips that you can swap out and you also have additional stabilizing fins to make sure that you...
have the best secure fit and from a battery life perspective they do extremely well you're talking about five hours of battery life per charge in addition to that if you do use the battery up in one of those uses you can get two hours of battery life with just 15 minutes and that's also really good so a 15 minute chart you're gonna get you two hours more and if you use them for the full five hours guess what you can also use an independently so as we take a look at these ear
budscan be used independently five hours each one in one year for one for five hours another than the other ear for five hours and then if you put them in the case for 15 minutes you get two hours more so overall battery life experience is extremely good now with the case you're gonna get 20 hours of total battery usage now as you take a look at the case the case is pretty straightforward so you have a microUSB charging cable we won't go into that but it is what it is there but it's relatively thin and if we compare to some of the other cases that we looked on the market this is the master in dynamic so you can see it's a little bit chubbier and it's a little bit wider if we compare it to the air Potts Pro you'll notice that the earpods case is much smaller and again in both ways but this is a decent case I think it's very competitive but what you're seeing in the market it's nice it has when you close it like this it locks really nicely if I...
open it up the ear
budsthemselves are magneti
cally charged and placed you do have a little LED marker here as well that's gonna tell your battery level and as you can see the ear
budsactually lock into place really nicely and it's gonna give you a really secure fit now this is one thing that I have not seen yet so if you've seen this before let me know the case itself the battery level is also reported in the app so if you go into the Alexa app not only will you see the battery level for the ear
budsbut you're also gonna see the battery level for the case never seen this before so I think it's a first but I'd love to hear if you see another product that does the same thing now as we take a closer look at the ear
budsare really lightweight you're talking about 7.6 grams so relatively light in the class you'll notice that you have a write marker contact points this is your gel I don't have the wing tips on mine you have your mics on here and it's it's it has no physical buttons all you do is tap to get the controls to go as we put these in our ears you can see what they look like they look really good and as they turn to the right and to the left you'll notice that they don't stand out that much they are a little bit larger than I would say some of the smaller ear
budslike if we were to consider what the air pods Pro look like but for this type of model they seem to fall into the same look and feel as many of the...
ones that we
reviewed on the channel they do not fall out of your ears and you can use the stabilizers to give you even more stability in my case these feel well in my ear and I can use them for a relatively long period of time but I'll say that they're not as comfortable as the air pods Pro but at this price point at 129 dollars they're amazing they feel
greatthey will be you can use them independently so I can actually put one away in the case and actually just operate with one both for phone
calls and listen to music and then when this one's dead I can swap out and then do this back and forth event like or I can use them both at the same time now these ear
budsalso work well in the gym setting they're ipx4 rated which means they're gonna be sweat resistant and then if you do get caught in the rain in the light sprinkle you shouldn't have any problems like from a mic perspective the ear
budsdo have two mics two beamforming mics for phone
calls and then has one for noise canceling when we do our
testwe'll see how they perform tonight we're gonna do a claw
Amazonconnected but we're in a 360 environment having simulated noise all around us you can see that the decibel ratings range from anywhere from 40 to 80 for nesting this is what the korfball was something like we may be an oompah how did
budsthat's one two three
tests let me know what you thought hot dog the next category is music...
reproduction so let's talk about the music playback I have to say that these have for 139 dollars and I have to come back to that price they sound really good they're not gonna be at the level of I would say a Sennheiser's and probably not that at the level of the Sony right the XM 3s but for this price point they sound and I would say probably better here that's pro for the price they have
greatbass mids and highs I didn't experience when the bass came in to any of the vocals that I was listening to that the mids and highs would disappear I found that the mids and highs were clean and crisp I found that the base was punchy and it was appropriate the overall experience was really good and the other thing is is that you can listen to music in two modes with these you can listen to music inactive noise or active noise reduction mode and we'll talk about that in a second and you can listen to music in transparency mode and I have to say that it's very very immersive and when I really listen to music I try to look at what the sound stage is like how much detail my picking up and also do I feel that the music is coming at me or is the music kind of encompassing me and bringing me into an immersive experience and I have to say that these do a really nice job of creating an immersive experience so you don't really hear like the music coming at you but you feel that you are surrounded by it and that's something to say I have to say you know
has to have worked with someone some company and we know that they partnered with Bose for certain features to get this level of I would say fidelity for their first try because I've seen earbud companies that with their first try even well-known companies that are going into true wires here but not have such a
greatproduct with their first run
Amazondid a phenomenal job with these so next let's talk about active noise reduction and you heard that well active noise reduction which is supposed to be different from active noise-cancelling now having
tested countless ear
budsand also over the ear headphones that have active noise canceling I have to say I can't tell the difference these perform phenomenally well they and here's a spoiler they even perform better from an active noise cancelling or reduction than these guys here than the than the pros the ear pad pros so they partner would boast to create this new alcoholic technology or term active noise reduction and they do a fantastic job so if you're looking for the best active noise reduction ear
budsfor 130 dollars these are them the next feature that we're going to talk about is transparency mode and I
callthese transparency plus I actually enjoy these a lot not only can I hear what's going on around me but I feel personally that it gives me a slight or a smidge bump above it so it gives me a little bit more hearing capability not that they are going to be falling to the class of I would say...
hearing aids but as I'm listening and I use the slider to bump it up I can hear that I hear just a little bit more the neat thing about this is that it's not in any way digitized or robotic what I hear but I can hear that it gives me a little bit more hearing than normal now the cool thing is is that you can use these to listen to music and as you're listening to music you can choose an active noise reduction mode or also transparency mode I find that I enjoy it the most and if I want that immersive experience active noise reduction mode is the best thing to use so all you have to do is double tap to turn it on and then you can cycle through each one of the modes just by doing the double tap now to take full advantage of the
budsyou have to have the
AmazonAlexa app installed now it's not mandatory but if you want to get all the features and really be able to fine tune them it's it's definitely recommended so there's a couple things that you're gonna see here first you do see the battery status tiles mentioning both of my ear
budsand then you also see that the case battery life is being rated that is really cool you also have the bose and are feature which you can turn on and off and you notice how they identified their their partnership their and this is the that pass through technology ambient mode or transparency mode you can adjust the level and then this is where I said it kind of gives me an extra bump you can turn that off if...
you'd like and also what you have is an equalizer so you can adjust the equalizer to get something even more personalized what you can also do is do an ear tip
testand we've seen this with with actually the air Potts Pro right so they have that feature let's go ahead and try this you can see what this looks like so I'm gonna play a sound
testand then I'm going to stay quiet for a second all right so this is letting me know that based on the mic because it has an internal mic as well you know has one mic that is gonna be for active noise-cancelling and then two for the
calls that it's
tested out that the size and fit is a good fit I'd recommend this and you can notice that it's saying that everything is
greatnow the other thing that you could do here and will exit out of this let's go back to our devices and our
budsis that you could also adjust a side tone so that's how much do you hear of yourself when you're speaking on a phone
callI enjoy that because I don't like being the guy that's on the elevator or anywhere else that's speaking really loud and telling everybody my business so having this adjustment is a good thing and then the other thing I like is that you can enable or disable likes if you'd like but also you can immune the headphones now you can do that by just pushing this button I mean I really don't use this this much because I use my phone app to do that but it's nice to see that they...
have it there so the app is a really good app it's simple its straightforward and again for 130 bucks these are the best ones on the market so guys that wraps up our
