At Google I/O 2022, Google unveiled its latest true wireless earbuds, the Pixel Buds Pro. Priced at $199, these promise all the capabilities you’d expect out of a premium set of buds today: active noise cancellation, solid battery life, pumping sound, and even goodies like real-time translation and spatial audio (coming soon).
The Pixel Buds Pro are the first in Google’s roster to offer ANC, and Google appears to have taken the matter seriously. In fact, the Buds deliver “one of the best noise cancellation performances in wireless earbuds today,” in Google’s own words. Battery life stands at 11 hours of listening time with ANC turned off. Turning the latter on brings the figure down to 7 hours, which is still enough to last you through a coast-to-coast flight.
Multi-point connectivity is also present. The Pixel Buds will be able to seamlessly switch between compatible devices, such as phones, tablets, or TVs.
The Pixel Buds will be available in 4 colors: black, white, orange, and what appears to be a pale shade of yellowish green. You’ll be able to pre-order a pair on July 21 for $199.
