High-end wireless headphones just got new competition: the Google Pixel Buds Pro. Announced at Google I/O 2022 on May 11 in a bit of a surprise cavalcade
Google says it will start selling the Pixel Buds Pro on July 21, but it has not opened up pre-orders at this stage.
Pixel Buds Pro will cost $199, and they'll be sold in four colorways: Coral, Lemongrass, Fog and Charcoal. That's $50 less than the Apple AirPods Pro, which have a similar set of features.
The Pixel Buds Pro's ANC runs on a custom 6-core audio chip that's running proprietary algorithms, and blasting tunes on custom drivers.
