Engadget Review

Amazon got some things right with its AirPod rival. Hands-free Alexa is great for voice control and works well. But, the sound quality is decent at best, the touch controls are limited and battery life is less than what the competition offers in 2019. Still, these are much cheaper than rival options.

Pros
  • Hands-free Alexa works well
  • Affordable price
  • Customization
Cons
  • Battery life
  • Limited touch controls
  • Mediocre sound quality
  • micro-USB charging
