This week, Google unveiled its latest generation of wireless earbuds, which are said to offer “premium sound quality, along with hands-free help from Google Assistant and real-time translation, available at an affordable price”.
The New Pixel Buds A-Series are available for pre-order at just $99.
Wireless Earbuds Designed to Offer a Premium Audio Experience
The new Pixel Buds A-Series are said to pack a custom-designed 12 mm dynamic speaker drivers to deliver full, clear and natural sound, with the option for even more power in the low frequencies with Bass Boost.
“To experience the full range of the speaker’s capabilities, especially in the low frequencies, a good seal is essential. We’ve scanned thousands of ears to make Pixel Buds A-Series fit securely with a gentle seal. In order to keep the fit comfortable over time, a spatial vent reduces in-ear pressure.”
The new Pixel Buds A-Series come with Adaptive Sound, which increases or decreases the volume based on your surroundings–such as moving from a quiet environment to a noisy street.
The buds also use beamforming mics to focus on your voice and reduce outside noise, help making your calls ‘crystal clear’. Once the call is over, quickly get back to your favorite music with a simple “Hey Google, Play my music.”
Pixel Buds A-Series include up to five hours of listening time on a single charge or up to 24 hours using the charging case. And with the ability to get a quick charge — about 15 minutes in the case gives you up to three hours of listening time.1
The earbuds are also sweat and water-resistant.2
Pixel Buds A-Series are now available for pre-order in the U.S. and Canada, arriving to customers by June 17. For more country availability and waitlist options, visit g.co/pixelbudsaseries.
