Billie Eilish Echo Studio price and release date

You can now pre-order the Billie Eilish Echo Studio on Amazon. The smart speaker costs $ 230 and October 14 is the expected release date.

The standard Echo Studio costs $ 30 cheaper at $ 200. Both versions support high quality audio formats such as Dolby Atmos spatial audio, HD music and Ultra HD. This sets them apart from the standard Amazon Echo, which offers less robust audio performance with smaller drivers.

How is the Billie Eilish Echo Studio different?

The fabric design of the Billie Eilish Echo Studio features the cover art for the musician’s “Happier Than Ever” album. In addition, the limited edition smart speaker comes with six months of Amazon Music Unlimited. Amazon’s music streaming service typically costs $ 10 per month ($ 8 per month with Prime).

That said, all of the changes found on this special Echo Studio are purely cosmetic. The device does not appear to have any different features or internal parts compared to the standard Echo Studio released in 2019.

Like the regular Echo Studio, the limited edition model comes with five speakers in total: a 5.25-inch woofer, a 1-inch tweeter, and three 2-inch mid-range speakers. The speakers inside the Echo Studio are louder than the base Echo’s 0.8-inch tweeter and 3-inch woofer.

Do you need to pre-order the Billie Eilish Echo Studio?

The holiday shopping season is just around the corner and this premium smart speaker could be a great gift for big Billie Eilish fans. The included Amazon Music Unlimited trial also makes it a great deal for music lovers.

An Echo Studio insider review found that the smart speaker gives you a great listening experience at home for a reasonable price. We expect the performance of this model to be exactly the same.

That said, buyers who buy a smart speaker who aren’t big fans of Billie Eilish are definitely better off saving $ 30 and going for the regular Echo Studio. And people who don’t care as much about premium audio quality are better off with the cheaper Echo or Echo Dot.
