Google released its Pixel Buds in 2017. They sounded decent, but our reviewer ran into some connectivity issues and found them uncomfortable to wear.
But 2019 has been a year of assistant-equipped AirPod competitors, from Amazon’s Echo Buds to Microsoft’s Cortana-enabled Surface Earbuds.
On Tuesday, Google threw its hat into the ring with the All-New Pixel Buds. Unlike its predecessor of two years ago, the new pair is “truly wireless” — meaning there’s no cord connecting the two earbuds.
The buds also have hands-free Google Assistant and support a long-range Bluetooth connection. You can stay connected from up to three rooms of a house away indoors or up to a football field outside, according to the company.
Google claims that the new Pixel Buds will have five hours battery life, while the case will carry 24. And with built-in microphones, the buds can adjust their volume to your surroundings to give you the best audio experience.
You can buy the new Pixel Buds in Spring 2020 for $179.
