The new Google Pixel Buds Pro stand out for their surprising autonomy and price

In addition to presenting the Pixel 6a, the Pixel Watch, the Pixel Tablet and even the first images of the Pixel 7, those from Mountain View also dedicated a space to talk about their new wireless headphones. The Pixel Buds Pro are here, and they come loaded with new features that will attract the attention of an increasingly competitive market.

The Pixel Buds Pro are, of course, the top of the range of their family of headphones. In fact, its main rival in the sector is Apple's AirPods Pro, whose second generation is just around the corner.

The first thing you should know about the Pixel Buds Pro is that they boast a compact design that, according to Google, can fit all types of ears. They mention that they have dedicated efforts during their development stage to make them as comfortable as possible. For its part, the charging case maintains the appropriate dimensions to fit in your pocket.

Internally, the Pixel Buds Pro integrate a processor signed by Google. Let's remember that the company already develops its own chips for Pixel smartphones and is now following the same strategy in headphones. Google points out that this has allowed them to design the best mobile sound experience in its history. The six cores of the SoC, accompanied by the drivers and a series of algorithms, promise a great audio quality.

Of course, the Pixel Buds Pro have active noise cancellation, a proposal already common in its range. We will also have a transparency mode available so as not to miss any sound from the outside when, for example, we walk down the street.

For those who enjoy listening to music while exercising, the Pixel Buds Pro are waterproof thanks to their IPX4 certification, while the case stays at IPX2. A feature that will be essential for many is that it will have quick pairing and Volume EQ. The latter automatically adjusts the volume based on what is happening in the environment. Obviously, they have support for Google Assistant.

What about your battery? According to Google, the Pixel Buds Pro offer a autonomy of seven continuous hours of playback with active noise cancellation enabled, and 11 hours when it is paid. Without a doubt, these numbers place them above other proposals on the market.

The Pixel Buds Pro will be available starting in July for $199 dollars in the United States. However, it seems that they will not take long to reach other territories. You can choose them in one of four color variants: coral (orange), fog (blue), charcoal (black) and lemongrass (green).
