Google Takes Aim At Apple With A More Affordable Pair Of Pixel Earbuds

Jun 7, 2021

Category: Tech

Upon release last year, Google’s first pair of true wireless Pixel Buds were met with widespread praise for their sleek design, intuitive functionality, and top-notch build quality. No matter if you were an Android embracer or even just an Apple defector, they offered a pretty solid alternative to joining the droves of the Airpod army.

But with the launch of the Pixel Buds A-Series, Google has just made its case against choosing Apple even more compelling. For starters, they come with a set of custom-designed 12mm dynamic drivers, an addition that ensures crisp, clear sound from base to treble. What’s more, Google has given the A-Series earbuds Adaptive Sound for automatic, environment-informed volume adjustments, as well as Fast Pair functionality for consistent, stable smartphone connection. Add to that features like IPX4 water-resistance, capacitive touch control, and, of course, support for Google Assistant, and you’re left with some pretty capable earbuds. But when you consider that the Pixel Buds A-Series also offer 24 hours of playback (with the help of the case) and 15-minute top-ups — for just $100 — they make for a value proposition that seems too good to be true. You can pre-order them at the link below.

Purchase: $100
