Google Pixel Buds review (2020): Truly smart earbuds

Google Pixel Buds review: second time’s the charm

 

Improved in almost every way, but connection stability is a problem.

Much-improved design ; Wireless charging ; Hands-free Google Assistant ; Easy pairing on Android phones

Connection stability concerns ; Stabilizer arc can cause discomfort after extended listening ; Average battery life ; Vented design lets in a fair amount of outside noise

Update Tuesday August 25th 9:00AM ET: This review has been updated to reflect new features and sound improvements that Google has brought to the Pixel Buds through firmware updates. However, it also now takes into account the Bluetooth stability issues...

Review: Google Pixel Buds (2020)

 

It's taken Google a surprisingly long time to make good earbuds. The original Pixel Buds from 2018 were a bulky, mushroom-shaped mess that made you look like Frankenstein's monster. The charging case was huge, the sound was middling, and when you...

Light and comfortable. Awesome sound. Sweatproof. Amazing integration with Android, including hands-free access to Google Assistant and fast pairing. Supports wireless charging.

Only five hours of battery life outside the case. Expensive.

I like the Pixel Buds for a different reason. One that’s not really quantifiable when looking at a spec sheet. These are made for the traditional AirPod buyer: someone who wants a pair of headphones that work exactly as expected, every time you use...

Google Pixel Buds (2020) Review

 

Comfortable ; Quick access to Google Assistant ; Long range

Background hiss in audio ; Occasional sound cutouts ; No EQ

The true wireless Pixel Buds make it easy to call up Google Assistant, but audio quality isn't their strong suit.

Google Pixel Buds (2020) Review

 

The Google Pixel Buds 2 finally live up to the hype

Rich, precise audio ; Stylish, durable and comfortable design ; Affordable ; Seamless translation technology

Lacks active noise cancelation ; Volume is a bit quiet ; No equalizer

The Google Pixel Buds 2 offer style, durability and great audio in an inexpensive, streamlined package.

Google Pixel Buds Review

 

Google's first-gen Pixel Buds had a lot of strengths, but the wired neckband design was too dated and too niche to really catch on. Now, three years later, the Android maker is back with its first set of true-wireless earbuds, new software tricks and...

Comfortable, secure design Great charging case Strong connection and range Great sound and call quality Excellent controls and Google integration Good combined battery life

Lack of ambient mode

Google Pixel Buds (2020) review: Android's AirPods

 

The new Google Pixel Buds (2020) boast a minimalistic design and premium features like wireless charging and water-resistance, but they're not the best deal around. For those who rely on hands-free Google Assistant access, though, these are the ‘buds...

Auto-pairing on Android is great ; Bluetooth 5.0 ; Wireless charging case ; Sound quality ; IPX4 water-resistance

Uncomfortable after one hour ; Price ; AAC only, no aptX

Google's new Pixel Buds are a huge step up, but are they the best for your money?

Sleek and compact design ; Comfy fit ; Detailed sound

Slightly buggy performance ; No transparency mode ; Poor call quality

For iOS users, the pricey
