The American company Amazon has officially presented the second generation of branded fully wireless headphones – Echo Buds 2. Compared to the original model, the novelty has become 20% more compact. The earbuds are IPX4 sweat and splash resistant.
At the heart of the new items are 5.6 mm drivers. Also, each earbud received three microphones – for use as a headset and to ensure the operation of the active noise cancellation system. Moreover, in the second generation, Bose’s noise reduction technology was replaced with a proprietary solution, which, according to the developers, doubled its efficiency.
Echo Buds 2 can live on a single charge up to 5 hours (with active noise reduction), and with periodic recharging in the included case, the battery life of wireless headphones increases to 15 hours. With support for high-speed charging, just 15 minutes in the case is enough for another two hours of music playback. Of course, there is also support for the proprietary virtual assistant Alexa. The price of new items is $ 120.
Canon, meanwhile, has unveiled the ultra-fast EOS R3 mirrorless camera.
