Apple, Google, and Samsung have their own wireless earbuds, but only one of them is guaranteed to stay in your ears

  These three pairs of wireless earbuds from three of the biggest tech companies in the world all look completely different from each other, but at the end of the day, they're all pretty similar.  They all offer similar sound quality, so you're likely to enjoy your music with one pair as you would with the other.  The Google Pixel Buds edge out a higher recommendation because of their sweat and water resistance — a feature that Samsung's Galaxy Buds Live and Apple AirPods don't have. It's an a...

OnePlus just announced its own pair of $80 wireless earbuds — here's what they're like compared to Google's $180 Pixel Buds

  Google's Pixel Buds and the OnePlus Buds are two options for Android buyers that provide similar design and functionality as the AirPods do for iPhone users.  The $179 Google Pixel Buds are $100 more than the $79 OnePlus Buds. The Pixel Buds have better sound quality, a better and snugger fit, and they look better than the OnePlus Buds.  If you're willing to spend $179, I'd recommend you buy the Pixel Buds. If not, the OnePlus Buds can be a good and cheaper option, but I'd also look at othe...

The OnePlus Buds sound great at $79, but they just don’t fit my ears

OnePlus may be best known for its affordable phones, but alongside those devices, it’s also released some pretty decent earbuds too. Today the company revealed its first go at the increasingly saturated ‘true wireless’ headphone market with the OnePlus Buds. The go on sale July 27 and majorly undercut competition like the AirPods and Pixel Buds with a price of just $79. That’s why I wish I could say I like them. I’ve had a few days to play with the OnePlus Buds prior to launch and they feature a...

Inside the Google team that dreams up colors

How do you bring a new color to life? Just ask Isabelle Olsson, who leads Google’s Color, Materials and Finish team. “Every year we work on hundreds of new colors, but maybe one or two make it,” she says. They dream up colors for things like Nest Minis and Pixel phones and develop them from scratch. Their goal is to create colors you’d love to see, not hide away in a cabinet or case.  Isabelle Olsson Among the latest to make the cut can be found in the new Pixel Buds: Oh So Orange,...

Google's $180 Pixel Buds are a great AirPods alternative for Android buyers, but despite recent improvements, they're still far from perfect

  Google's new Pixel Buds get the basics right for earbuds: they sound good, they look good, they're comfortable, and they're compact.  Sadly, however, there's no noise cancellation feature, background static is noticeable when listening to quiet songs (despite a firmware update designed to address this particular issue), and I continue to find Google Assistant to be an awful mess in earbuds. For $180, you'd be overspending on the Pixel Buds. That's because there are lots of wireless earbuds t...

Google promises to improve the Pixel Buds’ connectivity problems ‘in the coming weeks’

When it comes to design, features, price, and usability, Google’s 2020 Pixel Buds get almost everything right. As I wrote in my review, they’re Android‘s first real alternative to Apple’s AirPods, and one of the best true wireless earbuds you can buy. But try as I might to offer useful insights for buyers, a single user’s limited review period does not always translate to long-term experience. Case in point: many users have complained about connectivity issues plaguing their new Pixel Buds, incl...

Google's new $180 Pixel Buds sound better than Apple's AirPods, but they're ultimately too expensive for what you get

Google's New True Wireless Pixel Buds Mimic Two Key AirPods Features

Google launched its second-generation Pixel Buds this week to generally favorable reviews, thanks in part to a couple of new features that AirPods owners have appreciated for some time. The new Pixel Buds use a pairing process on Android 6.0+ phones called Fast Pair: Hold the case near your phone, flip the lid, and a screen pops up on the screen to indicate automatic pairing, which links them to the user's Google account. Apart from the obvious UI differences, that's pretty much identical t...

The 2020 Google Pixel Buds Feel and Sound Great, But There's a Problem

The original Pixel Buds were a strange product. They came out a full year after the AirPods, and despite having the same $160 price tag, they weren’t very comfortable, they weren’t very smart, and they weren’t even truly wireless, as they still had a cable connecting the left and right buds. But for the new 2020 Pixel…Read more...

Fast Pair makes it easier to use your Bluetooth headphones

Bluetooth headphones help us take calls, listen to music while working out, and use our phones anywhere without getting tangled up in wires. And though pairing Bluetooth accessories is an increasingly common activity, it can be a frustrating process for many people. Fast Pair makes Bluetooth pairing easier on Android 6.0+ phones (learn how to check your Android version). When you turn on your Fast Pair-enabled accessory, it automatically detects and pairs with your Android phone in a single t...

Google’s much improved Pixel Buds are finally here

The original Pixel Buds weren’t very good. No way around it. Here’s a thing I wrote about them in a review titled “A disappointing debut for Google’s Pixel Buds“: As recently as a couple of years ago, they would have been a contender for the most compelling Bluetooth headphones on the market. But given the strides much of the competition has made, they mostly land with a dull thud.” And we weren’t alone. Google’s first attempt at wireless earbuds were met with a pretty resounding “meh,” when ...

Google Pixel Buds 2 hands-on review: All about the assistant

The new Pixel Buds are lightweight, comfortable, and fit securely. They're far more svelte than Microsoft's Surface Earbuds or Apple's AirPods, but they won't hit store shelves until Spring 2020.
