Google’s New Pixel Buds Pro Boast ANC
Google are looking to take on earbud giants Samsung and Apple, and have announced their Pixel Buds Pro. One of the many products announced as part of their Google I/O 2022 developers conference, the Pixel Buds Pro are the first set of Google earbuds that feature Active Noise Cancellation (ANC).
For a seamless ANC, Google have implemented a feature called ‘Silent Seal’, which adapts to the shape of your ear and ensures that the maximum amount of noise possible is cancelled out. Furthermore, built-in sensors will adjust the fit based on pressure measurements in your ear canal, allowing the Pixel Buds Pro to be comfortable for extended periods of time.
Battery life is rather substantial at 11 hours, or 7 with ANC activated. Google also claim that a 5 minute charge will give the earbuds an hour of battery life.
Google have implemented several features to make connectivity simple and quick. Alongside fast pair capabilities, the Pixel Buds Pro can be simultaneously connected to multiple devices, and are simple to switch between commonly used Android devices without needing to go into Bluetooth settings.
Audio is delivered via a custom built six-core audio processor that makes use of Google algorithms and custom drivers, ensuring crystal clear playback. Other features include spatial audio, volume EQ for adjusting loudness based on environment, wind-blocking mesh covers, beamforming microphones, a voice accelerometer, transparency mode and Google Assistant support.
An IPX4 rated water resistance, and an IPX2 rating for the case mean that the earbuds are sturdy, but far from waterproof.
The Google Pixel Buds Pro will be available for pre-order starting July 21, and freely available for purchase on July 28.
