As the succession of rumors surrounding future Google phones continues, the Mountain View company has released your new Pixel Buds headphones on an international level. This new True Wireless model, also known as Pixel Buds (2020), arrives to succeed those semi-wireless Pixel Buds that we met back in 2017.
And precisely the main novelty regarding the previous model is that they are completely wireless, without even a cable connecting both headphones. What does remain, as expected, is its full integration with the Google assistant, to which must be added its integrated touch controls and autonomy that can reach 24 hours of playback thanks to the additional load provided by its case.
Price and availability of the new Pixel Buds
The new Pixel Buds are available starting today in the Google online store at a official price of 199 euros. At the moment, they are sold in a single color (white) with the matching charging case.
To deliver high-quality sound, the Pixel Buds feature 12mm dynamic speakers and Adaptive Sound technology, which adjusts the volume to suit your surroundings. Plus, built-in microphones and sensors focus on your voice to reduce background noise and ensure clearer calls.
Google assures that, when designing them, have studied the shape of thousands of ears so that you can adjust and place them to your liking safely; Meanwhile, space ventilation lets you hear what’s going on around you. They also have touch controls and are resistant to water and sweat so they can be used when it rains or you exercise.
As in the previous model, just say “Ok Google” to send a message, get directions from Google Maps, or play a music list. You can even receive real-time translations directly to your ear.
They are compatible with any computer, tablet and Android or iOS device that has Bluetooth 4.0 or higher. As for autonomy, they offer up to 5 hours of duration on a single charge, which can be extended up to 24 hours thanks to the charging case; It is powered through a USB-C port.
