The $ 99 Pixel Buds A-Series are more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time than more expensive headphones. They keep the same nice sound quality, and hands-free “Hey Google” access to Google Assistant and features like real-time translation are always helpful tips available to you.
The carrying case is just as fun to handle as it was before and has the same satisfying sound when you close it. Google promises the same five hours of continuous battery life, with a total of 24 hours when you include case charges.
Each earbud comes with capacitive touch sensors for music, calls, and Google Assistant controls, a single IR proximity sensor for in-ear detection to play and pause automatically and a motion-detecting accelerometer. They are now available for pre-order in the US and Canada. They will go on sale in the two countries starting June 17. There is no word on when they will arrive in other parts of the world.
