The all-new Google pixel buds 2 are the follow up from the pixel buds from 2 years ago. They cost $179. The traditional wire is not there anymore and they look way cooler now.
They are shaped like little circles with a flange to hold it in your ear. So, you put it in your ear and they are hidden. They have “Hey Google Support”. The mics have beamforming so it can hear your voice for improved call quality.
They have neat environmental features. If you have a Pixel phone or any other android phone running android N or above, you will get adaptive volume. The pixel buds will sense what kind of environment you are in and they raise and lower the volume of the audio you are listening to on your phone.
They also have passive noise cancelation. So they fit in your ear, but they are vented, so you can hear some environmental sound. That works in conjunction with the environmental sound feature, to give you a little bit of noise cancellation. It’s not active noise cancellation but it has the advantages of Google’s smart AI.
If you have an iPhone, they will act as just standard Bluetooth earbuds. They all last for 5 hours on a single charge and 24 hrs if you use the battery case. The battery case comes with a type C USB and wireless charging. There is a hidden LED light on the front and LED on the inside.
