One can go ahead and ask Alexa if Amazon is making earbuds that will probably rival with Apple’s airpods. It wouldn’t definitely answer, but yes, they are. Amazon will release these Alexa airpods in competition with Apple’s airpods generation 2. Alexa earbuds will have three main advantages over Apple’s wireless earbuds: a lower price, better sound quality and instant access to a smarter assistant.
There are a lot of airpods that have been inspired by the apple airpods already in the market. The wireless earphones have changed the whole industry to a new level. Airpods have become an ultimate success after the users have realized that having no cables is a better advantage to a better music experience. While some of them have had a huge market due to a lesser costing and better sound quality like Samsung airpods, some have flopped the market in a terrible way. However, Amazon will hopefully be able to capture its targeted market with its trust and loyalty.
Though Amazon uses a competitive pricing strategy for most of its products, for the airpods, it has decided to reduce the costs to a bare minimum price that will entertain all segments of consumers. Apple airpods go until $199 with the wireless charging case. But Amazon will reportedly only cost $99 and will come in a storage case that doubles as a charger. This might be a disadvantage for the Seattle-based company as there will be no wireless charging.
But there is a catch: since Amazon does not make their own electronic goods and are only the third party sellers, they will have to merge with other systems to launch and set up their airpods. For which, they will have to go back to android or apple. Since Alexa is just an assistant that works on any device, Amazon will have to rethink now for cellular connectivity.
Amazon’s Alexa is a successful assistant, just like Hey Siri and Ok Google sensors. There is a huge market for assistants in today’s world. Alexa makes playing music, shopping on Amazon, adding things to to-do lists, or querying for general information relatively easy. The generation 2 of apple airpods will come with Hey Siri assistants. Competitively, Alexa airpods will come with gesture controls. It enables tap to start and end calls, as well as switch between songs.
