New design, new features

The first thing we are going to see in these new headphones from Amazon is a renewed design. Now they are somewhat smaller (20% according to Amazon) and eliminate items that are protruding or apparently unnecessary. A simpler and more organic design to reduce its volume and improve user comfort. The headphones come in black or white.

Once we enter the interior of the headphones we find active noise cancellation improvements. According to the company, the second generation now cancels “twice the noise compared to the first generation.” This is partly due to the new inward and outward facing microphones. That is, they monitor what is heard from outside but also how it is heard inside the user’s eardrum.

Likewise, the headphones have a transparency mode that allows you to listen to the outside live. This mode is activated using Alexa with voice commands, the same happens with noise cancellation, it is Alexa who is responsible for activating and deactivating it. The assistant of course has the functions that it has in other devices such as setting reminders, making calls, making purchases or managing the calendar among other things.

The other important aspect to consider is the battery and autonomy of the headphones. Amazon promises 5 hours of playtime on a single charge, noise cancellation turned on, and Alexa listening turned on. A total of 15 hours if the charging case is added. Without active noise cancellation the autonomy goes up to 6.5 hours and 19.5 hours respectively.
