Amazon Prime Day is supposed to occur sometime in October, but if you can't wait till then — Amazon has one of the best headphone deals we've seen this summer.
Currently, Amazon has its Echo Buds on sale for $89.99 (opens in new tab). That's $40 off and the cheapest price we've ever seen for Amazon's Alexa-powered wireless earbuds. It's only the second time these headphones have been on sale.

The Echo Buds offer good sound quality, solid noise cancellation, and great integration with Alexa. They're on sale for $89.99 ($40 off) for the second time ever.
If you're in the market for new earbuds, the Amazon Echo Buds are an excellent pair of wireless headphones. In our Amazon Echo Buds review, we loved having Alexa at our beck and call no matter where we went. In fact, we found Amazon's digital assistant is much more helpful than Siri.
Just like the Apple AirPods Pro, the Echo Buds are IPX4 rated for resistance to sweat and light splashes of liquid. In terms of audio quality, they're not ready to compete with heavy hitters like Bose and Sony (we found the volume level to be on the low side), but they're not bad either. Especially given their current sale price.
Amazon partnered with Bose for the Echo Buds' active noise cancellation. The technology won't give you complete silence, but it'll reduce surrounding chatter to a mumble. They also have an adjustable Passthrough mode that lets you change the volume of your ambient noise. The Echo Buds offer up to 5 hours of battery life and up to 20 hours with their charging case.
