If you’re a subscriber to Amazon Music Unlimited or just started a free trial, you’re eligible to get 50% off the usual price for selected Amazon Echo speakers and displays for the next week, until midnight on September 22.
The eligible devices are:
- Echo Dot (3rd Generation) – Charcoal, Heather Grey, Plum and Sandstone
- Echo Dot with Clock
- Echo Plus (2nd Generation) – Heather Grey
- Echo Studio
- Echo Auto
- Echo Show 10″
All you have to do is enter the code MUSIC50 at checkout while being an Amazon Music Unlimited paying customer or trial user.
The discount code can only be used once and only for one device, so choose carefully. That makes the Echo Studio and Echo Show 10″ are the best deals.
Echo Studio is a mighty fine deal at half price – just $164.50. When I reviewed the Amazon Echo Studio speaker in late 2019 ago I concluded:
If your home is already part of the Amazon Alexa speaker ecosystem but you were missing a speaker that actually sounded good when playing music, then the Echo Studio is an obvious and easy recommendation to make.
Interestingly Amazon flew in its Senior Manager, Audio Hardware Technology for the Australian launch event of the Echo Studio. Jan Abildgaard Pedersen is a specialist in DSP & Acoustic Technology and has previously worked at Bang & Olufsen – this could explain why the Echo Studio is a similar shape to the B&O M3/M5 speakers (in my testing the Echo Studio sounded just as good as the B&O M5 speaker I purchased a few years ago, quite an achievement considering the relative prices of the devices, and it shows how much audio technology has progressed since then).
