    A pair of Pixel Buds for everyone

    Google designed and developed the Pixel Buds A-Series to look and feel a lot like their predecessors, the Pixel Buds. The earbuds themselves have the same form factor, while the case is the same size and weight. What’s different on the outside is your choice of colours, with the A-Series coming in either rock candy or olive.

    The case doesn’t provide wireless charging, though does charge quickly via USB-C. Plugging in for 15 minutes provides up to three hours of audio playback. To fully charge the earbuds, it only takes about 60 minutes.

    The standard Pixel Buds have touch-based swipe controls for volume, whereas the A-Series do not, focusing on the other included playback controls. When you remove one of the A-Series earbuds, audio may not pause quite as fast as with the standard Pixel Buds, but that is the extent to which these earbuds are different from their namesake predecessors.

    What the Pixel Buds A-Series can do

    Google didn’t change how the Pixel Buds A-Series sound, so their audio capabilities are unchanged, despite the fact they’ve been made with greater affordability in mind. That means they still quickly pair with Pixel smartphones, and work with all Android devices, including Apple’s iPhone.

    The same custom-made speaker drivers push the quality audio the standard Pixel Buds were known for. And with the same physical design, you can expect the same level of comfort when wearing them. With no fundamental changes to the overall design and audio output, the Pixel Buds A-Series carry on with the same level of performance in those areas.

    That does include the features and settings available in the Pixel Buds app (or settings on Pixel phones), like Bass Boost, for an additional bump to the bass of every song you listen to, as well as Adaptive Sound, which adjusts the volume of what you’re listening to based on how much noise is in the background around you.

    Google Assistant at your beck and call

    Google made the Pixel Buds A-Series with its Assistant in mind by way of hands-free access. Just say, “Hey Google,” and the digital voice assistant responds—all without having to touch your phone to wake it. That kind of convenience lets you ask a question or control a smart home device with ease and on demand.

    The Pixel Buds A-Series also have access to notifications through Attention Alerts, where Google Assistant can read out incoming notifications directly to the earbuds. When travelling, they can also take advantage of the integration (and a data connection) to translate or transcribe from a variety of languages.

    The level of integration with Google Assistant is unique to the Pixel Buds and Pixel Buds A-Series, and not something you will necessarily find in other true wireless earbuds. Solid onboard microphones prove to be more than capable when using the Assistant, or taking phone calls where privacy and clarity are always appreciated.
