Google recently announced a new version of Pixel Buds, alongside the new Pixel 4 phone, introducing the new Google Pixel Buds 2. The new Pixel Buds, however, look much smaller and lighter, although Google hasn’t released full specs yet.
The new Google Pixel Buds 2 was designed to feel like a river stone. It has a rounded, oval shape and matte finish grip. It does feel nice, and has a slight weightiness to it. The Buds are exceptionally light, evenly-weighted, and easy-to-fit. I didn’t have to finagle much to find a secure fit.
The case and Buds have a lovely matte feel to them, kind of like the back of the Pixel 2. They come in Clearly White, Almost Black, Quite Mint, and Oh So Orange options. The Pixel Buds 2 case has the same kind of colored accent around the lid as the Pixel phones do on their frame. The Pixels Buds 2.
Features Of The New Google Pixel Buds 2
The new Google Pixel Buds 2 case can serve up to 24 hours of use while the buds last for five hours of battery. The case can charge through USB-C and wireless chargers.
The sides are touch-sensitive, enabling taps and swipes to pause, play, or skip through music tracks, but you can also just ask Google to do it. As one would expect, we have the Google Assistant on-board, enabling queries, music control, and language translation, but the company also teased a new A.I. feature for the Pixel Buds which will be processed on-device.
Range is another big selling point for these buds. Google claims that these new buds can be an entire (unobstructed) football field away from their source and maintain connection.
According to what one of the rep explained about the indoor use. They have been able to have the buds and source on separate floors and maintain connection.
Working concurrently with this is the voice accelerometer, which uses bone conduction to detect vibrations from your jaw so the Pixel Buds know when you’re speaking, and therefore when to perk the mic’s ears up. This should help eliminate unwanted background noise from disturbing your conversations.
Spatial vents act as a pass-through so you can hear the world around you. This isn’t digitally faked, in this case. Instead, a physical vent allows the sound in. It wasn’t hard to hear anything with the Pixel Buds in my ear, but there was also no music playing.
The Pixel Buds 2 certainly look like a huge improvement over the original Pixel Buds, We won’t know exactly how they sound or how well they’ll work till 2020, since Google won’t be shipping them until then. That’s all for now, hope this article was helpful. More details on this when the buds are released. The Pixel Buds are planned to launch in spring 2020 at $179.
