Google Pixel Buds Pro: everything we know

Advertisements

There’s a new player in town: Google.

Recently, the Google Pixel Buds Pro, a pair of high-end wireless headphones, entered the market. These new buds, which include Active Noise Canceling and are priced to undercut Apple’s AirPods Pro and equal the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, were announced at Google I/O 2022 on May 11 in a surprising cavalcade of new hardware revelations.

The Pixel Buds Pro are the missing piece in the Google Pixel Buds 2 and Google Pixel Buds A-Series debate. Along with Active Noise Canceling, Google also seems proactive in anticipating potential concerns for its users.

Listed below is all the information we have about the Google Pixel Buds Pro.

The release date of Google Pixel Buds Pro

Google has not yet started pre-orders for the Pixel Buds Pro, which it claims will be on sale on July 21.

Price of the Pixel Buds Pro

There will be four colour options: Coral, Lemongrass, Fog, and Charcoal. They will retail for $199 each. Apple AirPods Pro, which provide a comparable set of capabilities but cost $100 more, are $50 cheaper.

If you’re looking for something more subdued, avoid the coral shade in favour of one of the others.

Features of the Google Pixel Buds Pro

On top of a special 6-core audio processor running proprietary algorithms, the Pixel Buds Pro’s ANC is powered by a pair of bespoke drivers.

Google’s earbuds use Silent Seal technology, which is akin to Apple’s Ear Tip Fit Test on the AirPods Pro. Google acknowledges in its news release that “it’s not always feasible for the eartips to achieve a perfect seal that prevents sound from seeping in from the outside,” therefore this is the reason. As a result, sensors in the ear canal assess pressure, which Silent Seal uses to optimise for comfort and noise cancellation.

According to Google, Pixel Buds Pro’s Transparency mode would let you to hear outside sounds for your own safety and adjust to windy conditions.

“Multipoint connection” means that Pixel Buds Pro will automatically swap the audio you hear as you move between “previously linked Bluetooth devices.” On my phone or TV, I might be watching the news or listening to a YouTube trailer, or I may be listening to podcasts on my laptop. For this function, “laptops, tablets, TVs, and Android” phones are all mentioned as supported devices. “iOS phones” are listed as supported devices.

In addition, the Pixel Buds Pro’s Volume EQ automatically adjusts to the new volume level. This is designed to maintain an even balance of audio levels.

They are also certified IPX4, which means that water splashes won’t hurt or delay your listening experience with the Pixel Buds Pro. The AirPods Pro have the same rating. The Pixel Buds Pro case is water resistant to IPX2 standards.

Battery life of the Google Pixel Buds Pro

With ANC turned on, the Pixel Buds Pro have a claimed battery life of up to 11 hours of listening time. The Jabra Elite Active 75t, our top selection for the best noise-cancelling earbuds, is rated for 6.5 hours, which is around half an hour less than the Apple AirPods Pro, which are only certified for 4.5 hours.

outlook for the Pixel Buds Pro from Google

The Google Pixel Buds Pro aren’t going to complete the Google Pixel Buds collection once they’re available. Another AirPods Pro feature coming “later this year” will be spatial audio, according to Google. Allowing viewers to immerse themselves in particular material will enable them to feel as though Vin Diesel and the rest of the Fast family are chatting around them rather than in front of them.

In the coming months, Tom’s Guide will conduct a complete evaluation of the Google Pixel Buds Pro. The question is whether or not they will be included in our list of the finest wireless headphones. What the future holds, we can only speculate.
