The 12 best Amazon Echo and Alexa speakers (2022): headphones, soundbars, displays

The Amazon Family of Alexa-enabled devices continue to grow. From the spherical Echo to the rotating Echo Show 10, you can bring Alexa into your home in many ways. These devices can answer your questions, help you sort essentials, set timers, play all kinds of audio content, and even serve as the control center for your growing smart home. These are our favorite Echo and Alexa-compatible speakers for every household and budget.

The best time to buy any Amazon speaker is during a big sales event like Black Friday or Amazon Prime Day, as the company often offers huge discounts. If you’re trying to decide which smart devices might be best for you, be sure to check out WIRED’s picks in our roundups: Best Smart Speakers, Best Bluetooth Speakers, and Best Google Speakers. We also have guides on setting up your Echo speaker, creating Alexa routines, and Alexa skills that are really fun and helpful to help you get started.

Updated September 2022: We have updated links and prices.

Editor’s note: Amazon has an event on September 28th where we expect new products to be announced. We will update this guide once we have tested the new items.
