Google Pixel Buds A-series launched

Google has unveiled the Pixel Buds A-series. The TWS is a toned-down version of the original Pixel Buds launched in 2019.

The Pixel Buds A-series cost $99 (roughly Rs 7,300). In comparison, the original Buds cost $179 (roughly Rs 13,000). Google has cut down on some features to keep the cost low. The budget Google earbuds miss out on wireless charging and swipe controls for volume adjustment. 

However, the company claims that the A-series Buds offer the same sound quality as the original Buds. It features 12mm custom dynamic drivers that aim to deliver full, clear and natural sound. The earbuds also come with a Bass Boost mode to focus on the low tones.

Another key feature available on the Pixel Buds A-series is Adaptive Sound. It increases or decreases the volume based on your surroundings. For a better experience during calls, the buds use beamforming mics to focus on your voice and reduce outside noise.

The earbuds, as expected, come with support for Google Assistant. You can continue listening to music by simply saying commands like “Hey Google, play my music.” It comes with IPX4 tasting for sweat and splash resistance. The earbuds deliver five hours of battery life on a single charge. With the charging case combined, users get up to 24 hours worth of juice. It also comes with quick charge support, which is claimed to offer three hours of listening time within 15 minutes of charge.

The Buds A-series will go on sale starting June 17 in the US and Canada. There is no word on its India availability yet.
