Using the usual wake word, Alexa, will activate the voice assistant, or by tapping and holding one of the buds, a separate voice assistant on your phone (such as Siri or Google Assistant) can also connect. You can toggle between noise reduction and the outside world by double-tapping the side of the buds.
Amazon promises up to five hours of battery with a single charge and 20 hours when using the charge in the included case.
