Since outlets are meant for charging your device, the Flex comes with a USB port to let you continue the task. As a result, the Echo Flex is a smart device that is packed with a good amount of features and comes at a considerable price.
While it is a little different from the rest of the products, it is worth the money and you will have a fully functional small Alexa at home.
12. Amazon Echo Buds (2nd Gen)
Price: ₹. 9,000
A hand-free Alexa voice control was a much-needed update and quite important at the time. And by all means, Amazon put forward another great product that justified the price tag. The wireless earphones came with great sound quality, offered noise cancellation, and were an upgrade for anyone who used a pair of earphones without the added benefit of noise cancellation. Not only was it small but was lightweight and easy to carry around. With this being the second update, people were ready to change the old one and stick to Echo Buds 2nd Gen.
13. Amazon Echo Wall Clock
Price : $49.99 (₹. 3,480 approx)
The Echo Wall Clock was a product in line with a set of other gadgets that were called Alexa Gadgets. It had to be connected to Echo smart speakers and helped people model their house with Alexa in another form. While it does stand to offer benefits, it did not click for the Indian market and was nowhere in sight when compared to the rest. And to take things further, Amazon also went ahead to launch a Mickey Mouse edition in the US, which came close to its original price tag.
14. Amazon Echo Sub
Price: ₹. 12,999
A sub-mass can always change things up for good and bring about a difference in a manner like no other. And with the Echo Sub, Amazon managed to achieve just that. While it cannot create a huge impact like a home theatre, it does provide the right kind of benefits that go a long way to make sense. Due to that, one could easily classify it as a smart speaker and move ahead to explore the different kinds of benefits that it brings to the table. While Bluetooth streaming does look weird for a device of this nature, there are other positives that come out of this device.
15. Amazon Echo Link
Price: ₹. 19,999
Amazon Echo Link helps you control music by connecting to existing stereo equipment. It was launched in India way back in 2019 and did create a small impact in the market. While there were better products on offer, the Echo Link stood out on a few aspects and went ahead to get established. With audio streaming services like Gaana, Amazon Prime Music, TuneIn, and so on, the Echo Link had what you needed in terms of music streaming.
16. Amazon Echo Link AMP
Price: ₹. 29,999
A built-in 60W and a 2-channel amplifier were the main attractions that were predominantly featured in the Echo Link Amp. And with these features, the product did generate a buzz and help people get used to a different system. A left-right speaker binding post output was also a part of the process and it went on to bring in some form of change or the other. With all these being added to the mix, both the Echo Link and Echo Link AMP came into the scene and were featured in the Echo lineup.
Alexa has always been a huge part of households as it makes our life a lot easier. And with Echo products creating a stable atmosphere, things tend to keep getting better. As a result, we don’t expect the Echo lineup to end but to keep on going till the end of time.
