Just as with other technology products, issues can arise and be frustrating for the user. We are going to take a look at some of the common problems that users are facing with their EcoBuds and how to remedy them.

For a full-featured overview, see our review to find out why we gave EcoBuds our Editor’s post of choice. Otherwise, if you’ve already grabbed a pair, learn to set them up with your phone in our handy walkthrough guide.

Contact issues

Your echo buds may indicate that they have connection issues, such as not playing audio or sound properly in one or both earbuds. To fix these and most connection issues with your echo buds, such as non-accountability, there are a few things you can do.

Start by soft resetting them: Begin by placing your Eco Buds back in their charging case and closing the lid. Next, wait for 30 seconds, then take the echo buds out of their case and see if the problem is resolved.

Restart your device: If no reset is done, you can also start your smartphone or tablet to see if it is the source of the problem. If your issue still persists, you may need to factory try to reset your EcoBuds, which we’ll get to at the end of this guide.

Alexa is not responding

If Alexa has left the house and stopped responding to your requests, we recommend checking a few things to make sure everything is set correctly.

Check your Bluetooth connection: Make sure your Eco Buds are actually connected to your device by going to your phone or tablet’s Bluetooth settings. If your buds are connected correctly, then next check that your Alexa app is open in the background of your device.

Check quantity: It seems so obvious, but it is perfectly normal that Alexa cannot go, but simply speaking softly. Make sure your device’s media volume is on. It is also possible that your EcoBuds are silent. To check that microphones are active for Alexa, open the Alexa app and select equipment Tab at the bottom of the screen. Select after Machinery Options and find your EcoBuds in the given list – tap on them. From here, you can check to make sure the microphones are active and not silent.

Then, if your issue is still there, you may need to try a factory reset of your EcoBuds.

Bad audio problems

When in doubt, reset: If the audio coming through your echo buds sounds bad, we recommend you follow similar steps if you are experiencing connection problems, and first try the reset as described above. Remember, you will need to use your EcoBuds within your device’s Bluetooth range – about 30 feet.

Hardware check: It is possible that your EcoBuds may have a hardware problem if the sound is thundering or stable. Start by trying to use your buds with another device. If the problem is solved while using a different device, then you know that the problem is with your original device and not with your EcoBuds. Otherwise, if the problem persists, you may need to reach Amazon for the warranty service described at the end of this guide.

Danger of overheating

In July 2020, Amazon sent an email warning customers that in very rare cases “it is possible for EcoBuds to overheat in a charging case,” the email stated. As a result, you will need to make sure that you have the latest firmware for your buds, which has fixed the problem. Check your buds firmware by opening the Alexa app, selecting equipment, EchoAndAlexa, and then EchoBuds. Buds no longer affected will have a firmware version under 318119151 or greater about Section.

Amazon eco buds

No battery as promised

Your Echo Buds should give you up to five hours of music playback on a single charge; The charging case extends the total time up to 20 hours. Keeping the EcoBuds in charge for only 15 minutes can provide a quick charge of up to two hours. If your battery seems to be draining down too fast, start by making sure that your Eco Bud is charging properly in their case. When charging, the LED light on the case should appear as green.

Additionally, make sure that the buds are properly seated in their case. Amazon notes that the included wingtips can sometimes make it difficult to close the case, so make sure they’re not getting in the way. As before, if the problem persists, you may need to reach Amazon for warranty service.

Try to update your echo buds

Many times, issues can only be fixed by updating your echo buds; However, there is no way to manually implement this process. When they are on their case and connected to the Internet through your phone, your buds will automatically install new updates. To encourage updates, keep EcoBuds in their case and connect to your device for at least 15 minutes.

To check the current firmware installed on your Echo Buds, open the Alexa app and navigate equipment, EchoAndAlexa, and then EchoBuds.

How to factory reset your EcoBuds

If all else fails and you just want to start from scratch (or maybe you are selling your buds or hand them over to a friend), then you just want to do a factory reset. Start opening the Alexa app on your iOS or Android device. Choose to equipment Tab at the bottom of the screen, select Machinery Options, then find your EcoBuds in the given list – tap on them. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and choose Forget device switch.

Next, navigate to your device’s Bluetooth via Adjustment App and tap to unpair your echo buds. Finally, put the Eco Buds back in their case, close it, and hold the button at the bottom of the case for 15 seconds. Once the reset is complete, the LED on the case will turn yellow. Now you have to reset your Echo Buds with your device.

Calling in experts

If you have exhausted all options and need to call in the cavalry, EcoBuds come with a one-year limited warranty, and we recommend reaching out to Amazon Customer Service for further assistance. If your hardware is defective, your EcoBuds may need to be completely swapped for a new pair.

Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) review

Though Amazon’s original model of Echo Buds from 2019 isn’t exactly long in the tooth, two years is an eternity in the world of true wireless earphones. However, the new Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) offers a host of upgrades and design improvements worthy of attention for anyone looking for a pair of sub-$150 true wireless earphones.

Editor’s note: this Echo Buds (2nd Gen) review was updated on August 5, 2021, to address Amazon’s Climate Pledge.

Who are the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) for?

Though nondescript, the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) are unmistakably an Amazon product at a glance.

  • Alexa users with heavy investment into Amazon services: while these earphones do a decent job for anyone, they don’t really shine without a heavy need for Amazon’s Alexa or content delivery services.
  • General users with a passing need for voice assistant support.
  • Gym rats with Amazon Music HD will find a good pair of TWS earbuds in the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen), as they offer water resistance and voice control.

What are the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) like?

It’s clear that Amazon doesn’t want anyone to mistake its product for the AirPods. Don’t get us wrong, AirPods are fine, but they’re not exactly the product you want to emulate when you need water resistance, isolation, or a snug fit. In those regards, the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) is the complete opposite of the eponymous Apple earphones—and that’s a good thing.

Start here: What makes a good set of in-ears?

The Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) definitely isn’t the flashiest product we’ve ever seen, but that’s probably wise, even if it means the earbuds look a little nondescript. A matte plastic exterior without feature might be a welcome change for those that don’t want to attract attention to the ear candy they’re wearing. The only branding you’ll see is a slightly off-color print of the Amazon smile… and that’s really it.

Proximity sensors pause your music when you remove the buds from the ear, and resume playback when reinserted.

The Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) comes with three sizes of ear tips, along with two sizes of rubber ear stays (three pairs total) to accommodate differently-sized ears. Ear stays are an additional bit of silicone or rubber that push against the inside of your outer ear to force the earphones to stay in place, so that way you’re not constantly adjusting the fit of your earbuds. Finding the right ear stay should only take 5-10 minutes, and you won’t have to take them off before replacing the Echo Buds in the case. The ear tips themselves are pretty standard fare—they’re made of the same smooth silicone that graces most earphones nowadays. While it’s a little disappointing that there are no foam options, it’s to be expected given the price.

Having several options to manage your earphones’ fit is a decent plus, and speaks to a desire to make sure those little plastic bits stay put. For true wireless earphones, managing your potential fit failures is the most important thing you can do; so it’s nice to see some improvement here over the original Echo Buds—and attention paid to something largely ignored by most manufacturers.

The rubber ear stays and fit test ensure the best possible performance of the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen).

However, the real star of the show is Amazon’s integrations via the Alexa app. Even though most headphones have some form of voice assistant functionality, the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) definitely plays to its strengths as an Amazon device. By using the app, you gain:

  1. Equalizer control
  2. Find my device
  3. ANC settings
  4. Enable wake words
  5. Adjust tap controls
  6. Ear Tip Fit Test (this is more important than it sounds)
  7. Workout data
  8. Live battery data for each earbud, and the case
  9. Power saving mode

Of course, these are just features laid on top of the Alexa voice assistant, so all the other features that come baked into that platform also work with the Echo Buds. If you have a lot of smart home products, these earbuds offer plenty of utility. Take a look at Amazon’s overview of the service if you want to learn what else Alexa does.

How do you connect the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen)?

When you first open the box, you could be tempted to rush in and pair your earphones like you would any other set of earbuds, but we recommend installing the Alexa app first. While installing anything that collects data about me gives me the willies, the lifeblood of these earphones is the Alexa integration. There are too many features reliant on Alexa to go without it.

Be sure to download the Alexa app before connecting your buds to your phone if you want all the features to work.

Once you’ve installed the Alexa app, open the case of the Echo Buds and ensure your Bluetooth is enabled on your phone. The Alexa app will ask you to sign in to your Amazon account, and prompt you to link any of its other services you may use (for example, Amazon Music HD or Audible). Setting up is quick, and relatively uninvolved. If you’d like to connect to a different device you can do that easily. Just be sure to hold the button on the back of the case to enter the buds into pairing mode, and connect to them via your device’s pairing protocol.

Become an expert: Understanding Bluetooth codecs

Though these earphones only support SBC and AAC, they perform well enough on either codec that you won’t really notice any performance issues from using either on Android. However, the response time when using SBC is a little on the long side at 360ms. You’ll notice a very short lag between actions you perform on your phone and the audio catching up, but most apps nowadays can help mitigate things like video delay, so it will probably only pop up rarely. Another thing to bear in mind: these earphones have a 6.1-meter wireless range which is quite a bit shorter than the standard 9-10 meters of wireless connectivity.

How to control the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen)

Controlling the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) is fairly straightforward. A capacitive touchpad on either earbud allows you to perform basic actions without engaging the voice assistant. By default, the actions are set as described in the table below.

ActionCommand
1 tapPlay / pause
2 tapsNext track / answer or end call
3 tapsPrevious track
HoldToggle ANC or passthrough

However, you can use the Alexa app to customize these controls to suit your needs. This is especially important for those who want to use either Siri or Google Assistant instead of Alexa, as you can change the long press to activate those voice assistants if you wish.

How to update the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen)

Like most other main functions of the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen), updates are handled from within the Alexa app. From the main screen, you can head to “device settings,” then select your Echo Buds after you’ve linked your device with them. From there you can navigate several options related to the operation of your earphones including (you guessed it) firmware updates.

How do the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) sound?

The Amazon Echo Buds (Gen 2) sounds decent enough that most people will enjoy them. However, these are not the earbuds you buy if you’re looking for a high-end experience, or critical listening.

The Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen, cyan) has an interesting sound, but you may want to tweak it a bit if you can.

The frequency response is a little quirky, but inoffensive if you’re used to a more consumer-friendly sound. The Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) tests very similarly to most other mass-market TWS earphones in this price bracket. However, even people who prefer sound like this may find it a little uneven.

All in all this is a pretty standard error curve for true wireless earphones, but that dip from 200-500Hz will be noticeable.

Take the chart above: it’s adjusted to show the deviation between our target and audio output of the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen), and it shows that these buds don’t actually sound especially bassy. The rather tepid output up to around 400Hz also means vocals won’t always be all that clear in the presence of other music. While speech intelligibility will be decent enough on a phone call, you may have difficulty picking out the words to a new song, or singers with high-pitched voices.

For example, it’s a little difficult to pick out Robert Plant’s vocals in Kashmir by Led Zeppelin, as they get a little lost in the lower guitar riffs, unless he’s really belting it out. It’s minor, but with earphones this small it’s quite common to run across this sort of issue.

We encourage anyone who can to mess about with the equalizer a little to see if you can get the music sounding to your tastes. Our suggestion is to drop the “Treble” and “Mid” sliders down a notch or two and see how that sounds to you. Unfortunately, there isn’t a more comprehensive graphic band equalizer, which makes it difficult to get the results you may want.

If you’ve performed the fit test to find the right ear sleeve sizes, these earphones aren’t going anywhere you don’t want them to.

One of the most clever things that the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) do for your sound quality is the Ear Tip Fit Test, which is buried in the Alexa app. We’ve screamed ourselves hoarse about how fit is the single most important thing you can get right to improve your sound quality, and it’s really nice to see a company help people achieve this on their own. Sure, you may find out that you can’t get an ideal fit, but there are other options if it comes to that.

The Ear Tip Fit Test will walk you through achieving the best fit possible. It’s short, painless, and a good way to double-check that you’re getting the most out of your earbuds. Passing the fit test will not only mean you’re getting the best noise attenuation you can, but it will also ensure you’re getting the best sound, too.

By being good isolators with active noise cancellation(ANC) on top of that, you’re unlikely to have your music masked out by environmental noise like cars and people gabbing around you. Even though sound quality isn’t the greatest here, it will sound a lot better in practice than it would on something with a poor seal like the original AirPods, for example.

How well do the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) cancel noise?

Isolation and noise cancellation are quite good with these earphones among the best at the sub-$200 price point.

These earbuds are made for commuting, and it shows with the new ANC unit. Offering improved ANC performance over the previous generation, the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) decently mutes out common sounds like car engines, the subway, or an airplane engine (whenever we get to fly again safely).

Related: Best noise cancelling true wireless earphones

You can expect loud droning noises to sound anywhere from half to one-eighth as loud with ANC on. Because the earbuds do a good job of ensuring a good fit, the isolation is pretty decent as well. This is good because instead of relying on a complicated system to get rid of noise present in the ear canal, the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) simply creates a physical barrier to block it from reaching that point in the first place.

Because establishing a good seal works against all types of sounds, it’s much more effective than ANC at getting rid of incidental noise like people talking, office sounds, and street noise. While ANC processing has gotten better over time, nothing will ever be quite as good as physically blocking out the noise in the first place, and the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) gets good marks here.

How good is the battery of the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen)?

All things considered, the battery life of the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) is average. It can’t be overstated just how difficult it is to cram that many electronics into such a tiny package, and still make room for batteries in each earbud. In our standardized test, the earphones lasted 4 hours, 42 minutes before needing a recharge in the case—very average for this product type. Most people we’ve polled use their headphones for no longer than 2 hours a day, so this kind of battery life isn’t really much to worry about.

The case itself is good for a few more charges, and thankfully it has an indicator light to tell you how much juice it has left. If you are diligent about storing your earbuds in the case, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about when it comes to battery life unless you have a super-long flight coming up.

ColorBattery level
GreenGreater than 40%
YellowLess than 40%
RedLow battery

Like most other true wireless earphone cases, these charge via a USB-C port tucked into the back of the case, near the Bluetooth pairing button. The battery is relatively small, so you won’t have to leave it charging overnight just to get a full cell.

Is the mic good for calls?

In our experience the mic isn’t really anything to write home about—but it’s not bad either. You can listen for yourself below, but you may note that the mic sounds a little compressed. That’s to be expected and is extremely typical of true wireless earphones.

Please wait..Loading poll

How good is the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) in the gym?

As far as true wireless earphones go, these are a decent fit for the gym. The Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) does a lot to manage potential fit issues, and it boasts an IPX4 water resistance rating. This means the earbuds can take a splash or sweaty workout without you having to worry about it much.

...they can take a splash or sweaty workout without you having to worry about it much.

If you like to exercise with only one earbud in, the Echo Buds (2nd Gen) supports the use of either earbud independently.

Is the Amazon Echo Buds environmentally friendly?

Sure, Amazon has a badge on the Echo Buds page saying “Climate Pledge friendly,” which sounds like a rebranding of the common term, environmentally friendly. With this Climate Pledge, Amazon vows to reach carbon neutrality in two decades—an interesting goal from the company that normalized compulsory online shopping.

We’d like some transparent and concrete figures when discussing nebulous topics like clean energy consumption offset. All-new Echo Buds (2nd Gen)

The black colorway of the Echo Buds is made from 21% post-consumer recycled plastic. To offset the energy used to produce the Echo Buds, Amazon is building wind and solar farms, though the wording of it suggests they’ve yet to be built to completion.

What happens when the batteries degrade too much?

The elephant in the room Amazon does not address: what happens to the Buds when they no longer work? Ultimately, true wireless earphones are not particularly green. Either the buds turn obsolete or the batteries go kaput. You can’t really replace the batteries in the majority of earbuds without some know-how. Like other true wireless earbuds, the Echo Buds batteries are covered in solder.

See: Where do batteries come from?

Collectively, we often turn a blind eye to the environmental impacts of disposable tech culture and the Echo Buds may very well end up in a landfill the same as other earphones. Amazon’s in a powerful global position; it could pave the way for major changes in responsible green tech but to some, this Climate Pledge could come off as lip service.

Should you buy the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen)?

Yes. Amazon chose to look at the Echo Buds (2nd Gen) as a tool rather than a flashy gadget, which means there are plenty of creature comforts here that offer an actual leg up when it comes to its users’ experience. As much as I hate to say it, more companies would do well to emulate Amazon here. The Ear Tip Fit Test is something I’d love to see more often.

The Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Generation) are a solid set of true wireless earphones, if nothing Earth-shattering.

Of course, this all comes with the caveat that by using the Alexa app you’re coughing up a lot of personal information. That may not bother you as much as it does other people, but it’s a really important issue to note because these earphones are not the same product without Alexa. We understand that it’s almost impossible to offer stats tracking and voice assistant functionality without a certain level of data collection, but it’s still something to be aware of. For some, it’s a dealbreaker.

At $119.99 USD for the wired charging and $139.99 USD for wireless charging earbuds, these are well-positioned to compete with the AirPods Pro, but they fall a little short when it comes to sound quality. Nevertheless, the features packed into the Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen) make a very strong case for your dollar if you’re invested in the Amazon ecosystem already.

Are Your Amazon Echo Buds Not Connecting? Try This!

Don’t despair because there are a couple of things you can do to solve the issue. Hopefully, one of these ideas will help you connect them to your Android or iOS device, and you’ll be able to enjoy the experience to the max.

What’s Causing the Issue?

Sometimes, it’s something as simple as a missing update, So, before you try anything else, go to Google Play Store or App Store and make sure your Alexa app is up to date. Also, check the battery on your buds because it may be running low and causing the buds to lose connection.

Of course, check your device to see if Bluetooth is on. Double-check the name of the device you’re pairing the Echo buds with because you might have chosen a wrong one the last time.

Connecting the Echo Buds

The devices should automatically connect when you open the Echo buds case. If you already have Alexa on your smartphone, make sure it’s active when you’re opening the case. If you do so, a prompt will appear on your phone’s screen. You only need to follow the instructions to pair the buds with your phone.

If this doesn’t happen, you may have to do it manually.

  1. Turn on Bluetooth on your phone.
  2. Launch Alexa.
  3. Open the case of your Echo Buds.
  4. Find a button under the lid. Hold it until a blue light starts flashing. The pairing mode is on.

  2. Enable the Airplane mode and leave it on for around a minute before turning it off.
  3. Restart your smartphone.
  4. Disable Bluetooth on the device and turn it on again after a minute.
  5. Now, unpair the Echo Buds from your device within the Alexa app.
  6. Unpair the buds and reset the settings to factory defaults. Then set them up again and pair them to the device.

To unpair the buds, do the following:

  1. Tap on the Alexa icon to open the app.
  2. Tap Devices to see the list of paired devices.
  3. Choose All Devices and go through the list to find Echo Buds.
  4. Tap Echo Buds and choose the Forget Device option.

  5. That will unpair Echo buds from your smartphone so you can now pair them again.

Restarting the Echo buds is done in two simple steps:

  1. Put them in the case they came in.
  2. Close it and wait for 30 seconds before you take them out again.

If this doesn’t work either and you still can’t connect them to your device, try resetting the buds to their factory settings. Here’s how:

  1. Unpair the buds from your phone, as we previously described.
  2. Put the buds in their case. Close it and find a button on the bottom. Press and hold it for 15 seconds.

  3. When the reset is complete, the LED will turn yellow.
  4. Perform the setup again and pair the Echo buds to the Alexa app and your phone.

My Echo Buds Are Connected, but Alexa Isn’t Responding

You’ve checked for potential updates and paired the buds to your smartphone. However, Alexa is still not responding to your voice commands. Try one of these things:

  1. Check if both Alexa and Echo buds are connected to the internet.
  2. Make sure the volume on your phone is high enough and adjust it if needed.
  3. Check the Echo buds settings within the Alexa app – you might have muted the microphone.
  4. Make sure that your phone’s Wi-Fi connection is working.

These are more or less the same steps you can take to check why music isn’t playing on the buds. One of the solutions should fix the issue.

Sometimes Simple Means the Best

In most cases, connectivity issues require a straightforward solution, such as restarting a device. Technology is not perfect, and temporary bugs may occur. However, you don’t need to be a tech wizard to solve the problem. One of the suggested ideas should do the trick.

Common Echo Buds problems, and how to fix them

You’ve purchased a pair of Amazon’s Echo Buds, and now you’ve got Alexa in your ear assisting you throughout the day — or at least that’s how they are supposed to function. Just as with other tech products, issues can arise and can become frustrating to the user. We’re going to take a look at some of the most common problems users are facing with their Echo Buds and how to remedy them.

For a full-featured overview, check out our review to learn why we gave the Echo Buds our Editor’s Choice designation. Otherwise, if you’ve already grabbed a pair, learn how to set them up with your phone in our easy walkthrough guide.

Amazon Echo Buds

Connection issues

Your Echo Buds may show signs that they are having connection issues, such as dropping audio or sound not playing in one or both earbuds properly. To fix these and most connection issues with your , such as unresponsiveness, there are a couple things you can do.

Start by soft resetting them: Begin by placing your Echo Buds back in their charging case and closing the lid. Next, wait for 30 seconds, then take the out of their case and check to see if the problem is resolved.

Restart your device: If a reset didn’t do the trick, you may also want to restart your smartphone or tablet to see if it is the source of the problem. If your issue still persists, you may need to try factory resetting your Echo Buds, which we’ll get into toward the end of this guide.

Alexa not responding

If Alexa has seemingly left the house and stopped responding to your requests, we recommend checking a few things to make sure that everything is correctly set up.

Check your Bluetooth connection: Ensure that your Echo Buds are indeed connected to your device by heading to your phone or tablet’s Bluetooth settings. If your Buds are correctly connected, next check that your Alexa app is open in the background on your device.

Check the volume: It sounds too obvious, but it’s entirely common that Alexa might not be gone, but simply speaking softly. Ensure that your device’s media volume is turned up. It also might be possible that your Echo Buds are muted. To check that the microphones are active for Alexa, open the Alexa app and select the Devices tab at the bottom of the screen. Next, select the All Devices option and locate your in the given list — tap on them. From here, you can check to make sure the microphones are active and not muted.

Again, If your issue is still there, you may need to attempt a factory reset of your Echo Buds.

Poor audio problems

When in doubt, reset: If the audio coming through your Echo Buds sounds poor, we recommend following similar steps to if you are facing connection issues, and first try a reset as outlined above. Remember, you will need to use your within Bluetooth range of your device — about 30 feet.

Check the hardware: It is possible that your Echo Buds could have a hardware issue if the sound is garbled or contains static. Begin by attempting to use your Buds with another device. If the issue is resolved when using a different device, you know that the problem is with your original device and not your . Otherwise, if the issue persists, you may need to reach out to Amazon for a warranty service as described at the end of this guide.

Overheating risk

In July 2020, Amazon sent out an email to customers warning that in very rare cases “it’s possible for Echo Buds to overheat while in the charging case,” the email said. As a result, you will need to ensure you have the latest firmware for your Buds, which has fixed the issue. Check your Buds’ firmware by opening the Alexa app, selecting Devices, EchoandAlexa, and then EchoBuds. Buds that are no longer affected will have a firmware version of 318119151 or greater under the About section.

Amazon Echo Buds

Battery not as promised

Your Echo Buds should give you up to five hours of music playback on a single charge; the charging case extends that total time up to 20 hours. Placing the in their charging case for only 15 minutes should yield a quick charge of up to two hours. If your battery seems to be running down too fast, start by ensuring that your are properly charging in their case. When charging, the LED light on the case should show as green.

Additionally, ensure the Buds are sitting properly in their case. Amazon notes that the included wingtips can sometimes make it difficult for the case to close, so make sure they aren’t getting in the way. As before, if the issue persists, you may need to reach out to Amazon for warranty service.

Try updating your Echo Buds

At times, issues may be fixed by simply updating your Echo Buds; however, there is no way to manually force the process. Your Buds will automatically install new updates when they’re in their case and connected to the internet via your phone. To encourage an update, keep the in their case and connected to your device for at least 15 minutes.

To check the current firmware installed on your Echo Buds, open the Alexa app and navigate to Devices, EchoandAlexa, and then EchoBuds.

How to factory reset your Echo Buds

If all else fails and you just want to start from scratch (or maybe you’re selling your Buds or handing them down to a friend), you might want to just do a factory reset. Begin by opening the Alexa app on your iOS or Android device. Select the Devices tab at the bottom of the screen, select the All Devices option, then locate your Echo Buds in the given list — tap on them. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and select the Forget Device button.

Next, navigate to your device’s Bluetooth via the Settings app and tap to Unpair your Echo Buds. Lastly, place the back in their case, close it, and hold the button on the bottom of the case for 15 seconds. Once the reset is complete, the LED on the case will turn yellow.
