Google Pixel Buds A-Series TWS is launched for a very pocket-friendly price ($99) after their previous expensive buds, which cost around $179. It’s price is one of the great reasons to grab these buds.

This A-Series are the latest competitor in the Market, like the most significant plus point is its pricing. These are the best hand pick options for android users. Talking about its performance, then it does a pretty good job with devices that handle Bluetooth 4.0 and above. Battery life as the previous one, which is 5hrs with a further 19 hrs of charging with the help of a bundled charging case. But yes, Google has cut costs to some extent and that’s why these buds are valued for money at this price.

Google Pixel Buds A-Series- Review:

Let’s review the newly launched Google Gadget and its features in detail.

Some Highlights:

  • It is currently available for pre-order.
  • Comes with adaptive sound
  • It also reassembles previous buds in many features.

Release Date:

As per Google claims, these buds will be available to buy from 17 June in the U.K. and U.S.

(BUT) Pre-Order of these pocket-friendly google earbuds are available in the U.S. Market and soon be officially launched. Soon coming in India as well via Flipkart.

So, get these buds for $99 starting this month. The price is much lower than the previous model. Other than the U.S. and U.K.

Design:

These newly launched Wireless buds are almost similar to their predecessors with few differences. It comes with a stabilized arc in each bud on the inside and the same egg-shaped charging case as previous google wireless buds. These are made available in two fantastic eye-catchy Colors: Dark olive and white.

And these are made of pretty good stuff and finished with matte plastic. There is a small button at the back of the case for Bluetooth pairing. If you have a pixel, it’s pretty much easy to connect as it gets an automatic connection just by opening Bluetooth, whereas other phones need to use the pairing mode. The charging case and earbuds come with a matte finish and give a different level of a premium experience. The material used in these buds is really strong enough to face day-to-day challenges.

Google Pixel Buds- Key Features & Specifications:

In terms of features, it’s almost the same as the previous one, including real-time translation, Google Assistant and IPX4 water or sweat resistant or splashproof. It’s suitable and fits well while running, workout or playing etc.

In these new buds, there is no sound cancellation feature. But it’s ok as its price is low. But it offers adaptive sound features which automatically high or low the volume based on your surroundings.

These buds are ideal for android users but also work amazingly with iOS, tablets or laptops etc. You can use Google Assistant to enjoy it fully. It gives access to many benefits. And another great feature is when you miss one or both buds somewhere in the house or workplace, it has a find my device feature.

One can efficiently operate these buds as it’s pretty straightforward:

  • Tap once to start or pause
  • Tap double to go forward with a music track
  • Triple tap for rewind or back

In Case of Call:

  • Single tap to answer the call
  • Double-tap to reject or end the call

Unlike previous google buds, It doesn’t provide touch volume control, so it needs to change the volume via Google Assistant, simply starting with ”Hey Google”. Another drawback is it’s not offering wireless charging having USB-C charging, but at this price, it’s expected.

Comfort and Fit:

It’s available in two colours and comes with a charging case and three different sets of ear tips. The larger one is more comfortable than the medium. It fits very well. These are a bit lighter than previous google wireless buds. It weighs around 5 gm each and firmly provides in ears with delight and comfort.

Sound and Call Quality:

Google Buds A series sound quality is another reason to make it a competitor. It’s sound is absolutely clear and clean. Google research claims that sound is balanced, pure and natural. And we are impressed with trying it. While testing, we found a rock-solid connection, and no signal loss has happened almost if we are away about 20-30 steps from the device.

Its performance is also decent, and both buds work well in listening and voice goes clear. We have tried on google meet, and the report comes out happy as there is no issue in voice, and one can hear a clear voice. Overall, the sound is fantastic with such an affordable piece.

Battery Life:

Battery wise there is also nothing changes in these Google buds like previous ones. Google claims a continuous battery life of about five hours. And two and half hours while calling or talking. Also, get 24 hours total, including a charging case. We have tested them out, and definitely, it lasts for approx five hours in a go. It also offers three hours of battery life by charging for 15 minutes if you forgot to charge or travel. Overall, the battery life is decent and not at all bad.

Some Pros & Cons (You Should Know): 

 Pros Cons
  • Clean and Clear sound; especially during calls
  • Voice assistant available
  • Command based google as
  • IPX4 Sweat and Water resistant
  • It’s charging case is so much compact
  • Noise Cancellation Feature is not available

Final verdict:

The main advantage of these earbuds is their affordability. It comes out as the best option for android users with budget control. Although these are not the best sound earbuds in the Market, the deal-breaker is its pricing. A fantastic solution if you are using pixel or android. They also fit well even when shaking or doing the movement. It’s battery life also doesn’t run out before four to five hours. In terms of sound, these are decent, not that best or worse.

At last, Google Pixel Buds A-Series are worth buying and top pick with just $99.
