The first-generation Amazon Echo Buds have just plummeted back down to the lowest price we've ever seen, following the release of the second-gen wireless earbuds. 

Normally costing $129.99, Amazon has slashed the price of the Echo Buds to just $79.99, saving you $50 on the true wireless earbuds. (Not in the US? Scroll down for the best Amazon Echo Buds prices in your region.)

Save $50 –
We've seen this price a few times before, but this is still a pretty spectacular price drop on the Amazon Echo Buds. An affordable alternative to the Apple AirPods, these wireless earbuds come with Alexa smarts onboard, IPX4 water-resistance, and noise reduction.

The Amazon Echo Buds were the tech giant's first foray into the world of true wireless earbuds, and they still offer a capable alternative to pricier buds like the Apple AirPods

They come with Alexa built in, a five-hour battery life (plus 20 hours from the charging case), and an IPX4 water-resistance rating, making them suitable for use while working out. 

They've since been usurped by the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen), which come with some substantial upgrades – not least the introduction of full active noise cancellation. 

However, the latest Echo Buds are pricier, so if you want to try a pair of Alexa earbuds without spending upwards of $100, buying the original Echo Buds is a good compromise.
