Wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation (ANC) are convenient. Not so great: pricing. AirPods Pro sell for $250; Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro for $200; Master & Dynamic MW08 go for $300. That’s a lot of moolah. Amazon’s ANC Echo Buds 2 are way more affordable: only $120 ($140 with wireless charging).
The Echo Buds 2 improves on the first-gen Echo Buds in every way and not just on price. The buds are sleeker and 20 percent smaller; the charging case is 40 percent smaller and supports wireless charging (optional); and there’s real ANC now (OG only had active noise-reduction).
