Google announces wireless Pixel Buds

2019-10-15 18:06 by


At its annual hardware event in New York on Tuesday, Google revealed a brand-new wireless version of its Google Pixel Buds. The new headphones are nice-looking, maintaining the same pastel color scheme Google offers on its Pixel handsets. They have updated speakers and sensors, while still remaining lightweight and comfortable, thanks to a new spatial vent design that reduces the "clogged ear feeling" experienced with other headphones.

According to Google's senior vice president of Devices & Services, Rick Osterloh, the upgraded earbuds come with a long-range Bluetooth connection, making it possible, for example, to leave your phone in your locker at the gym and still be able to listen to your music wirelessly.

The original Pixel Buds delivered access to Google Assistant, but the implementation was clumsy, requiring tap prompts. The new Buds, though, promise hands-free access to Assistant, letting you ask for walking directions, control your music playback and translate languages in real-time (among other tasks) with just a verbal "Hey Google" prompt. Google says the new Buds will include "on-device machine learning chips," suggesting Assistant tricks should improve over time.

The new Pixel Buds won't be available until 2020. And when they do ship they'll cost $179, which is $20 less than AirPods with a wireless charging case.
