So you have a mute button a volume up and down button and that right circular button at the top right is actually like an action button so if you have alarm set pressing that button will turn off the alarm, at the back is powered by a micro USB port for power and a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack if you want to connect to a headphones or speakers the bottom is kind of a soft texture so you want to put it on its surface and will scratch anything built-in sight is a bluetooth and Wi-Fi adapter.

Sound quality has been improved again! 3rd time's the charm.

So it’s been an interesting first few weeks with the Echo and am happy to say Echo 2nd Gen has finally delivered on its promise of improved sound quality over 1st Gen Echo, with the 3rd firmware since launch. If you are confused about a lot of the negative reviews, old firmware is the likely cause of most of them regarding poor sound quality.

Very nice!

Bought this for my wife for Christmas. I gave it to her today and this thing is awesome. Easy to set up which is what I worried about the most. Great sound, and does exactly what it's supposed to do. Pretty cool little chunk of technology.
