We have recently reported about the second generation of the wireless headphones of Apple, AirPods, and their cool features. It seems like this gadget has become quite monopolistic, since there is no decent competition so far. But if the situation is about to change? According to the report made by Bloomberg, compiled with the help of the information provided by anonymous sources, the e-commerce giant Amazon is working on the development of wireless earbuds, similar in design and functions to Apple’s all-time favorite, AirPods.
FeaturesAllegedly, the new device will have an embedded access to the personalized assistant Alexa, which can be used for performing a wide range of tasks. Moreover, it will compete with AirPods due to the better quality of sound, a more convenient feeling when worn and a cheaper price point. As mentioned in the report:
“The headphones will let people use their voice to order goods, access music, weather and other information on the go. The Amazon digital assistant will be summoned by saying "Alexa." There will be physical gesture controls, such as tapping to pick up and end calls and switch between songs.”
