Apple's AirPods pair perfectly with iPhones, but what do you get if you own a Google Pixel 2? As of now, that's a no-brainer: Pixel Buds. Google's own take on wireless earbuds isn't just great for music — the headphones sound a little better than AirPods — but they're also loaded with intelligence thanks to the company's Assistant and real-time translation features that could change communication as we know it. SEE ALSO: How Google's Pixel Buds will kill Apple AirPods It's impossible to test out the Pixel Buds and not compare them to AirPods. They share many similarities and differences. They both cost $159, which is really reasonable for wireless earbuds. Many others wireless earbud models, like the Samsung Gear IconX, cost $199 or more. They both last five hours on a single charge and come with charging cases that can charge them fully four times. And they both come with special technology sauce that helps them pair faster and easier with phones as opposed … [Read more...] about Google Pixel Buds review: They’re great… if you own a Pixel phone
November 15, 2017 - Written By John Anon Easy setup, easy to use, fast charging and Google Assistant makes these an option worth considering During the company’s Oct. 4 event Google introduced two new smartphones, the Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. While they were just the headline products announced, Google also announced a number of other hardware additions including some other second-generation products like the new Google Home(s) (Mini, Max, and Plus), and the new Daydream View headset. In addition, Google also announced a first-generation hardware product in the form of the ‘Pixel Buds’. There are Google’s first Bluetooth earphones, they are now available to buy through the Google Store, and they are priced at $159.99.

Call it a hardware company or not, Google has been making a lot of new physical products lately. Some have been fantastic. Others exhibit the kinds of glaring growing pains typically associated with first-generation hardware. The Pixel Buds are the perfect example of this dichotomy. On one hand, they do some of the wireless earbud basics well, and they mix in some smart features that tease a seemingly inevitable future where we all have computers in our ears. Largely, though, Google comes up short with these $159 wireless earbuds. The Pixel Buds are full of little flaws that make life with them a frustration. Yes, this is first generation hardware. But it’s also coming from Google, which hasn't been shy about raising expectations for its new hardware division. For the Pixel Buds, at least, it's better to lower them. Google’s hardware unit announced Pixel Buds earlier this year, a pair of wireless earbuds (aka corded wireless earbuds aka neckbuds) designed to work best … [Read more...] about Google Pixel Buds review: the future shouldn’t be this awkward
The Google Pixel Buds are now available for purchase and pre-orders have begun to ship to those early adopters. Thanks to Google, we have a review pair in-house to give you a preview before yours arrive or in case you were on the fence about purchasing them. After all, these are Google’s first wireless earbuds and they cost an arguably-steep $159. So we’ll be diving into the Pixel Buds to checkout Google Assistant on them, decide if they sound good enough to replace your current earbuds, and to report back on things like battery life. We’ll see if we can find an opportunity to test the real-time translation magic that Google has baked in as well. Before we get to all of that, though, we figured an unboxing and setup tour would be a good place to start. Here is our Google Pixel Buds unboxing!

From operating systems to smartphones, competition between Apple and Google has effectively defined an era of technology. With the release of the AirPods last December, Apple established a firm grip, if not a stranglehold, on the market for fully wireless buds. Meanwhile, Google just dropped the Pixel Buds, which aren’t completely wireless but do boast some neat, unique features.Frankly, these two sets of earbuds are quite different. For starters, Apple’s AirPods are fully wireless, meaning zero strings attached, and they’re one of the few to cut all the cords while retaining great usability. Google’s Pixel Buds are tethered, meaning, while they do connect to your phone wirelessly, a wire connects the buds. And that’s just for starters. We don’t expect anyone to find themselves choosing strictly between the two (at least, not if they did their homework), but because it’s Apple and Google, comparisons will be inevitable. With that in … [Read more...] about Google Pixel Buds vs AirPods: Two very different sets of Bluetooth earphones

Det är en kamera som tar bilder av ditt livAfter reviewing the slate of new hardware presented by Google at yesterday’s event, a couple of… unusual… products stand out: the language translating Pixel Buds earbuds and the Google Clips camera. The on-stage demos were pretty slick, especially for the Pixel Buds, which Google claims can essentially translate spoken languages in near real-time – the Star Trek Universal Translator made real.But will it work in real life? Executing a rehearsed demo is one thing, executing a major language faux paus in another country due to an inaccurate translation is quite another. Suffice to say, real world use is needed to truly test this tech and we’re planning to bring you an in-depth evaluation as soon as it comes out.As for the Google Clips camera, a sort-of life-logging device, DT’s Andy Boxall is asking the question perhaps few others are: Who wants this kind of tech? And why did Google think it was a good … [Read more...] about Is the timing right for Google’s Pixel Buds and Clip camera?
Google's promising $159 Pixel Buds are now shipping to customers, and they do something no other wireless earphones do. Credit: Google The Pixel Buds offer instant access to Google assistant and offer 5 hours of battery life, but the most intriguing feature is real-time translation of 40 different languages. With the feature, you'll be able to speak to someone in a different language and rely on Google's Translate to help you get the job done. But as Google's own support page, and those who have tried out the feature, can attest, it'll take some legwork to make it happen. Here's how to make Google's real-time translation work with Pixel Buds:For one thing, you're going to need a first-generation Pixel or a Pixel 2 phone. All other handsets won't allow for the real-time translation Google offers with its own line of smartphones. Additionally, you'll need to have the Google Translate app running on your smartphone.Now that you're ready … [Read more...] about How Real-Time Translation on Google Pixel Buds Works
Google has finally made its own headphones, and they do so much more than just play music. On stage at its San Francisco hardware event today (Oct. 4), the company showed off the $159 device, which can translate conversations between people speaking 40 different languages -- but not if you're using an iPhone. Image: Google The Pixel Buds come in black, white, and "kinda blue," and come with a charging case that Google says provides 24 hours of battery life. However, the Pixel Buds don't do the translation all on their own. On Google's product page for Pixel Buds reads: "Use of Pixel Buds as an audio headset requires a Bluetooth enabled companion device. For minimum OS and hardware requirements, go to g.co/pixelbuds/help. Additionally, the Google Assistant on Google Pixel Buds is only available on Android and requires an Assistant-enabled Android device and data connection.
