Google has now launched a set of Pixel earbuds with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) which is the first for the brand. The buds were released on the first day of the recent event – Google I/O 2022. Here, we will talk about the specs, features, availability, and the expected price of Google Pixel Buds Pro in Nepal.
Google Pixel Buds Pro Overview
Beginning with the design, Google Pixel Buds Pro looks a lot like the Pixel buds we saw a few years earlier. You can notice the same in-ear design with silicone tips on the buds. It weighs 6.2 grams each and is IPX4 rated against water and sweat resistivity. Likewise, the case is IPX2 rated for the same. Each bud measures 22.33×22.03×23.72mm in dimension.
The buds are designed with a new sensor that measures the pressure in your ear canal to improve your comfort level while you use the buds. The buds come in four color configurations – Coral, Lemongrass, Fog, and Charcoal.
As we discussed earlier, the new Pixel Buds Pro brings ANC (Active Noise cancellation) feature for the first time on the Google earbuds. This was made possible by a new six-core audio processor that powers up with Google-developed algorithms and optimizes with Google’s internal audio team. Moreover, you can see the “Silent Seal” technology on the buds to optimize the aforementioned noise cancellation and compensate for audio leakages.
The buds also offer a transparency option that can be used to be aware of outside surroundings. The integrated 11mm driver works for this effect. Google also claims to enable spatial audio head tracking via an update soon which will make your playlist more immersive.
Moving on, the Pixel Buds Pro features Bluetooth to connect to your phones. Not to forget, you can have a multipoint connection for the earbuds. You can see that the earbuds can automatically switch between the last two devices the earbuds were connected to. This is even prevalent on iOS devices. We have a realization that this is not a new function but since this is the first time Google allowed its buds to have this, we should consider this.
Under the hood, Pixel Buds Pro has a battery life of 7 hours even when you turn the ANC on. Likewise, if you decide to turn it off, it can be extended up to 11 hours. Then, your case increases it to 31 hours which is pretty impressive. It supports quick charging – 5 minutes of charging time can result in an hour of playback time.
