Amazon's Prime Big Deal Days sale is still nearly a week away, but if you're looking for a great way to take Alexa with you on the go and don't want to fork over a ton of cash, this early deal is worth checking out. Amazon has discounted its own Echo Buds and Echo Auto devices by up to 46% right now, with prices starting at just $35. There are three models of affordable everyday earbuds available, as well as a device that will add hands-free access to Alexa in your vehicle -- and these early October Prime Day deals make them much more affordable.
If you're looking for a pair of open wireless earbuds on a budget, a pair of Amazon Echo Buds 2023 are a good choice. They offer solid sound quality, multipoint Bluetooth pairing and a battery life of up to five hours per charge -- and right now these $50 headphones are marked down to $35. While these earbuds do not have noise-cancellation technology, they do give you access to Alexa on the go.
For those that prefer headphones with active noise cancellation, Amazon has also discounted the second-gen Echo Buds. Like the pair above, these earbuds offer access to Alexa and multipoint Bluetooth connectivity, but the added noise canceling will allow you to immerse yourself in music, podcasts, audiobooks or even voice calls without worrying about how loud your environment may be. You can nab the version with a wired charging case for $65, saving you $55 on the list price -- or get the model featuring a wireless charging case for $20 more.
And you can also add Alexa to your car for just $35 right now with Amazon's $20 discount on its second-gen Echo Auto device. It has a five-microphone array, which should pick up your voice over the AC, your music and other road noise. Whether you want to stream content from your favorite apps, call or message hands-free or even control your compatible smart home devices from the road -- helping you turn on the lights or adjust your thermostat before you get home -- this device has a lot to offer, especially for those already invested in Amazon's ecosystem.
