Pixel Buds Pro: Google announces its new wireless headphones with active noise reduction
It was on the occasion of Google I / O 2022 that the manufacturer lifted the veil on its new high-end true wireless headphones.
So the rumors were true. Google has just announced its new line of true wireless headphones, the Google Pixel Buds, which seem designed to compete for head-on with Apple's AirPods Pro.
Four colors and multi-point Bluetooth for connectivity
On the design side, Google does not change a team that wins and keeps its usual button format. Silicone ear tips allow the headphones to stay properly in the ear but also guarantee passive and active isolation of the headphones.The Google Pixel Buds will be offered in four colors coral, yellow, blue and black. The charging case does not change and keeps its usual white color.
These headphones are compatible with multipoint Bluetooth and can be connected to a smartphone and a PC for example, and switch from one device to another seamlessly.
If the Google Pixel Buds Pro differ very little compared to the classic Pixel Buds, these true wireless headphones nevertheless incorporate some exclusive features starting with active noise reduction, managed by a processor equipped with six cores and a neural engine, responsible for understanding ambient noises and canceling them. A transparent mode will also be available to re-hear ambient noises at any time without removing the headphones.
Pixel Buds Pro will also be compatible with spatial sound but not at launch. We will have to wait a few more weeks and an update to be able to enjoy it.
Google Assistant will obviously be in the game and these headphones can also be added to the "Find my Device" application and easily found thanks to their last position.
Finally, the autonomy is announced at seven hours with active noise reduction and 11 hours if the system is switched off.
The Pixel Buds Pro will be available at a price of € 219/KES 26,548 but Google has not yet specified the launch date in Kenya. American buyers will be able to get their hands on it as early as July 28.
