Google’s truly wireless headphones Pixel Buds were announced in October last year and have now hit shelves in the US. Google has also launched a new Pixel Buds app on the Play Store to further improve the app. Google Pixel Buds 2 will naturally challenge the upcoming second-generation Apple Airpods.

The predecessor of the Pixel Buds 2 were not true wireless as the two buds were connected with a cable. Also, the old Pixel Buds were not exactly impressive.

Google Pixel Buds 2 Features

The Pixel Buds 2 were designed after scanning thousands of ears for a comfortable fit, the company says. The earbuds weigh just 5.3g each and Google claims that they have solved the issue of earbuds falling out of the ear. The Pixel Buds 2 are IPX4 rated which makes them sweat and water-resistant.

Google uses custom-designed 12mm dynamic speaker drivers supporting passive noise reduction. The Pixel Buds sport dual beam-forming microphones and a voice accelerometer that suitably improve the voice call quality. The Adaptive Sound technology of the earbuds can adjust the music in real-time based on the environment just like auto-brightness works in smartphones.

Google Pixel Buds provide up to 5 hours of music and up to 2.5 hours of talk time while the charging case can add another 24 hours. A 10-minute charge from the case enables 2 hours of listening time. The charging case is Qi-certified empowering the users to go for wireless charging. A USB-C charging port is provided as well.

Under the hood, Pixel Buds is packed with capacitive sensors for music, calls, and Google Assistant. To play and pause automatically, dual IR proximity sensors are inbuilt with a motion-detecting accelerometer and gyroscope.

Google Pixel Buds 2 Price and Availability

The company is selling the Pixel Buds for $179 in the US. Currently, only Clearly White color variant is available while other variants – Oh So Orange, Quite Mint, and Almost Black – will be made available soon.

Seeing the global COVID-19 crisis, the company might not be able to roll out these buds in other countries anytime soon.
