On the various Echo devices Alexa is listening all the time, although you can disable the microphone by pressing a button on the device. On the Firestick Alexa is only listening while you hold the mic button down. As soon as you let go it is no longer listening.
There is also a remote for the Echo series and that also only listens when you hold the mic button down. The Echo will respond to commands spoken into the remote even if its own mic is disabled. If the button and the ring on an Echo device are blue it is listening but if they are red then it is not
