The end of this year’s Google I/O presentation was dedicated to branded devices. Among them, the company demonstrated a new pair of Pixel Buds Pro.
This model is slightly different in appearance from the Pixel Buds A-Series, although the white cases are almost the same. The earbuds themselves can be completely black, as well as with coral, green or blue outer inserts. Even on the Pro model, there are no additional internal locks (which in fact may be necessary for TWS-earbuds). The case of Pixel Buds Pro is protected from moisture according to the IPx4 standard, and the case – IPx2.
Each earbud has three microphones. They are used for communication as well as for sound processing. The built-in intelligent adjustment system can adjust the sound depending on external circumstances. The earbuds also adjust the sound reproduction in the case the earpads do not close the ear canals tightly. Of course, such earbuds have an ANC system and a separate Transparency mode.
The custom 6-core processor will additionally provide all the “smart” components. The earbuds support multipoint connection and offer minimal latency. There is support for Google Assistant and real-time translation in 40 languages. Later, with the updates, the earbuds will receive support for spatial audio. And if even a single bud is lost, it can be found thanks to the application Find My Device.
Google Pixel Buds Pro can play music for up to 11 hours on a single charge. However, the noise reduction system will reduce this indicator to 7 hours. Given the charge from the case, you can count on 31 hours of work (or 20 with ANC), and the case itself can be charged at induction stations.
Google will start accepting orders for the new earbuds on July 21, and they are priced at $199.
