Google Pixel Buds Pro review: Shut up and take our money


Maybe it's not fair to always view Google and Apple as locked into some kind of gadget death-match. But when it comes to wireless earbuds, comparisons are inevitable. And let's face it: Google has struggled to create a version of its Pixel Buds that...

Compact and comfy Very good sound quality Very effective ANC/transparency Wireless charging Bluetooth Multipoint

No real EQ adjustments No high-quality/low-latency codecs Still no iOS Pixel Buds app

Android fans wishing they had a true AirPods Pro alternative will be thrilled with the Pixel Buds Pro. They’re comfortable, sound great, and have everything they need to become your go-to earbuds for work, play, and everything in between.

Pixel Buds Pro review: Google’s best earbuds yet


There's still a defined circle on the outside of this IPX4-rated Pro model, and that's where the earbuds accept taps and swipes for the on-board controls. Those are mirrored on both sides, with single (play/pause), double (skip tracks forward) and...

Deep punchy bass Solid ANC performance Reliable touch controls Wireless charging

Priciest Pixel Buds yet Call quality Pairing could be quicker Spatial audio isn’t ready Transparency mode

Google’s best earbuds yet are also its most complete package thus far. All of the features that made 2020’s redesigned Pixel Buds and the A-Series follow-up such compelling options for Android users, especially Pixel owners, are back. And while the...

Google Pixel Buds Pro Review: Better Fit, Better Sound


The $200 (£179, AU$299) Pixel Buds Pro are Google's first earbuds to feature active noise canceling. While it's nice that they finally have a feature that a lot of true-wireless earbuds have had for a while, what ultimately sets the Pixel Buds Pro...

Tapered design allows for secure, discreet, comfortable fit Very good sound and impressive noise canceling Natural-sounding transparency mode Good voice-calling performance Good battery life Hands-free Google Assistant for Android users

No support for aptX or LDAC audio codecs for Android users A few features not available for Apple users Spatial audio feature not available at launch

While the Pixel Buds Pro are fairly pricey at $200, they measure up well against other earbuds in this price range, including the Sony LinkBuds S and Beats Fit Pro, and offer excellent performance overall. As I said, the key for me was how well they...

It wasn't a sure thing that the Pixel Buds Pro would turn out to be good. Google has had a mixed, inconsistent track record with wireless earbuds so far. The original Pixel Buds in 2017 had such an unconventional design that something as fundamental as...

Good active noise cancellation Improved sound and lengthy battery life Multipoint support No more frequent audio dropouts

Transparency mode isn’t as good as it could be No support for advanced Bluetooth codecs Audio fidelity falls short of the very best earbuds Mic quality could still use some work

The Pixel Buds Pro are Google’s best set of earbuds yet. They’ve shed the connectivity flaws that sank the second-gen model while adding respectable active noise cancellation, longer battery life, and superior sound. And the inclusion of multipoint...

Google Pixel Buds Pro Review


Powerful bass depth and bright, sculpted highs ; Quality noise cancellation ; Supports hands-free and translation features on Android ; Qi-compatible wireless charging case

No AptX support ; Lacks customizable in-app EQ

The Google Pixel Buds Pro deliver satisfying audio, effective noise cancellation, and some unique Android-only features, but lack the codec support to deliver the best sound quality on Android devices.

ANC makes everything better

Google Pixel Buds Pro


Google delivers a user experience rivaling the one iPhone users get with AirPods.

Beautiful design ; Slick integration with Android ; Great battery life

No iOS app ; No support for the aptX or LDAC codecs

Google Pixel Buds Pro offer a combination of flawless integration and solid performance that hasn’t previously been available to Android users.

Google Pixel Buds Pro review: AirPods Pro, but for Android


Google's first attempt at truly wireless earbuds, the Pixel Buds, were good but not great. They lacked high-end features such as the active noise cancellation and transparency mode found in Samsung's Galaxy Buds and Apple's AirPods Pro. And Google's...

Great sound Long battery life Deep Android integration Comfortable ANC

No Spatial Audio

At $199, the Pixel Buds Pro is priced between the $249 Apple AirPods Proand the $149 Samsung Galaxy Buds 2. And despite their name implying the earbuds are only for Pixel phones, that's not the case at all. I've connected the Buds Pro to multiple...

Google Pixel Buds Pro review


Google gifted the Pixel Buds Pro with active noise cancelling (ANC), so now you can perform your usual productivity tasks while dampening the outside world. Conversely, if you'd rather invite the world in, the Pixel Buds Pro has a few Android-specific...

ANC and Transparency mode Hands-free Google Assistant access Water resistant case and buds Fast, wireless, and USB-C charging Battery life Fast Pair and multipoint

No equalizer AAC and SBC codecs only, no aptX Fit is a bit loose Price Missing features at launch

Promising on paper, the Google Pixel Buds Pro brings active noise cancelling (ANC) and a redesigned earbud to the table. The case now sports an IPX2 water-resistant build to go with the buds' IPX4 rating. The vastly improved battery life and noise...

I tested the Google Pixel Buds Pro - and they blew me away


For $199, you won't find a better pair of wireless earbuds for Android.

Comfortable design ; Great sound quality ; Long battery life ; Tight integration with Android ; Multi-device support

ANC and transparency are good, but not as good as other earbuds ; Mic quality could be better ; No advanced features like hi-fi support or Spatial Audio
