The second gen of Echo Buds are supposed to have better sound, ANC, calls and sound quality.
The Echo Buds 2 include stability fins (silicon jacket with earhooks) that help earbuds fit more securely and comfortably in the ear than the first gen. However the IPX rating remains the same as IPX4.
The Echo Buds are powered by Realtek RTL8763C, the SoC that support SBC, and AAC-LC audio codecs, but it’s specfied which codec, but I guess it’s AAC-LC.
