INTRODUCTION

Google Pixel Buds

These are the new Google Pixel Buds, and with possibly one exception. Apple deserves credit for pioneering some of my favorite features that are also found on the new Google Pixel Buds. For one thing, pairing them to a Pixel 4 is as easy as flipping open the lid and tapping the notification that pops up. Of course, like any Bluetooth device, you can also manually pair them to something else which is almost more interesting to me than the buds. Visually it hues to Google’s minimalist industrial design without the kind of anonymous glossiness of Samsung’s Galaxy Bud’s pill or the suitcase-like AirPods Pro Carrier, and once you touch it, it’s really this grand slam of facility. It takes the matte finish of the Pixel 4 a step further into eggshell territory. In fact, it really feels like an egg. Of course, it’s much thinner than an egg. You can even slot it into a coin pocket.

Apple Airpods Pro

Apple has released the AirPods Pro. Apple has finally ditched the one-size-fits-all style of the ear pods and created a brand new revolutionary magical new way to get these to fit with everyone’s ear tips. The design is actually functional, the earbud is slightly angled and curved so it now sits in my ears better.

You can even slot it into a coin pocket.

Apple Airpods Pro

It technically brings the microphone further from your mouth but they sound just as good for phone calls than at the bottom of the stem you have a force sensor instead of touch sensor now so you’re squeezing to play pause double squeezing to move to the next track long squeeze to turn on noise cancellation it was annoying at first because the shorter stem is a bit closer to the side of your head the way they fit but then when got used to just squeezing the sides normally the only bummer is there’s no volume control from the buds at all, honestly think that might be my least favorite thing about the design. You really don’t want to have to ask Siri to change the volume every time.

COMFORT

Google Pixel Buds

In terms of comfortability factor, they feel nice and snug. It’s better for the gym. You can just barely see them from dead-on, and from the side, they just kind of look like someone put a Mentos in your ear. Comfort-wise, they’re, about average. They’re simple rubber instead of the fanciful space-age foam of my longtime favorites, the Earing M2s, and like most buds, after about two hours, they start to get a little itchy or sore.

Apple Airpads Pro

This doesn’t have the suction problem that so many other true wireless earbuds have when you’re pushing the earbuds into your ears and the force causes them to go in even further and it’s just an uncomfortable experience these are just more comfortable and reliable. You can walk around move more than normal work out and they create a nice little seal and that’s already a big functional difference.

FEATURES

Google Pixel Buds

As you’d expect, the Pixel Buds have the deepest possible level of integration with Google Assistant. You can swipe for volume, menu tap to skip tracks or confirm commands. Also like some other earbuds, these know when they’re in your ear and when they’re out, and they’re quite good at pausing playback when you take them out and resuming when you put them back in. One of the things that earbuds are almost always bad at is the voice call.

Apple Airpads Pro

You can still pause music and skip between tracks by squeezing each earbud has a mesh-covered microphone along the outside with other sensors and another microphone on the inside that Apple uses for things like auto-pause when you’ve removed one from your ears now keep in mind that’s a feature that you’ll only get with iOS devices so the charging case itself really isn’t a big deal here it’s pretty much the same exact thing just slightly bigger and now it also opens along the wide horizontal side instead but it’s just as portable and easy to carry as ever so there are no real concerns here the air pods also both perfectly snap back into place magnetically just like the originals so no real changes in that aspect.

BATTERY

Google Pixel Buds

You’re getting five hours worth of battery on a single charge, with an additional 19 hours using the charging case. So that’s a total of 24 hours battery now you’re getting fast charge 10 minutes of charge will give you 2 hours left the playtime. It comes with USB type-c charging and you also got wireless charging. Build quality in this charging case is excellent you’re gonna love this smooth matte feel to it.

Apple Airpads Pro

The battery life to be shorter than the original air pods but that really isn’t the case, you will get 5 hours and 6 minutes of constant playback with active noise canceling turned on. It’s way better than average which tends to be around 3 to 4 hours of constant playback.

CONNECTIVITY

Google Pixel Buds

It comes with Bluetooth 5.0. Over the50 feet there is no drop connection at all. The Bluetooth range to be very good indoors. The buds can only maintain a connection to one device at a time, and at press time, there’s no automatic audio cue to tell you which device they’re connected to.

Apple Airpads Pro

If you’ve ever used a pair of headphones that have apple’s h1 chip like the original AirPods or any of the newer Beats products but there’s really nothing new here it’s the same process as soon as you open the case near an iOS device a card will pop up that will allow you to click to connect automatically. Once you do so it will connect to all other devices on your iCloud.
