Google gave a sneak peek at a revamped version of its wireless earbuds, which will cost $180 when they launch next year


Google announced new Pixel Buds at its October 15 Google Pixel 4 event.

The new Buds will feature hands-free access to Google Assistant, which can be activated by saying “Hey Google.” They will also have a longer Bluetooth range than before: three rooms away, or across a football field.

The Pixel Buds will have five hours of battery life, and up to 24 hours with the wireless charging case, which looks more similar to an AirPods charging case than the 2017 case.

This second edition of Google’s Bluetooth earbuds is entirely wireless, much like AirPods or Galaxy Buds. The Pixel Buds 2 lack the cable connecting the two buds that the first version did, which many users complained was an inconvenience.

The 2019 version is sweat- and water-resistant, and also has interchangeable eartips to accommodate different ear shapes, with a stabilizer arc that tucks into your ear to help with fit. Google also says that volume will “dynamically adjust” depending on the environment you’re in using a feature called Adaptive Sound.
