Review of the brand-new Google Pixel Buds 2 and its pro’s and con’s
Product Name: Google Pixel Buds 2
Product Description: The new Google Pixel Buds 2 comes with a trendier design, better sound quality, and many new features, which makes this one of the best truly wireless earbuds in the market.
The design makes it convenient for everyday use. The fact that they have gotten rid of the wire makes it cool and easy for the user
The first Google Pixel Buds came with a wire which connected the two buds. These made it uncomfortable for the users, and it was going against the trend. There were enough and more options out there in the truly wireless earbuds category, which did not have any wires. The new Google Pixel Bud 2 comes with no wires. It is two sleek earbuds that fit in perfectly to your ear.
The charging comes with USB Type-C charging port which is the normalcy when it comes to wired charging, but most importantly the case supports wireless charging unlike the Sennhesier Momentum 2 buds. If you are using a power sharing enabled phone you could use to charge the case and extend you usage time. To add to that, the case supports quick charge. A quick 10-minute charge in the case will give 2 hours of uninterrupted playback.
Most truly wireless earbuds such as the Apple Aipod Pro comes with Active Noise Cancelation. Unfortunately, Google Pixel Buds 2 does not have ANC. It only provides Passive Noise Isolation which uses the design and the physical fit to dampen the outside noise to give better and clear sound to the user. The fact that these earbuds have a fixed ear fin and for some user it would not give the perfect fit, the Passive noise cancelation would not suffice. However, after using and going through many comments from the user, there is hardly a complain about noise cancelation. If you are extremely specific when it comes to noise cancelation, you would be a touch disappointed.
Google Pixel buds 2 comes with a guaranteed 5 hours of nonstop playback. This is quite good, but you still find other options with more than 5 hours of battery life such as the Sennheiser Momentum 2. These options could be touch expensive, but for user who value longer battery life would not go for these Google Pixel Buds 2. However, the charging case adds another 19 hours of playback which solves the problem and a 10-minute quick charge gives 2 hours of nonstop playback as well.
The new Google Pixel Buds 2 comes with a brand-new design. It is a big leap forward from its predecessor, which had a wire connecting the earbuds. The two buds come separately with a sleek mat finish, which gives it a rich look. Google launched these initially in white color, but now you can get these earbuds in four colors. The colors are White, Orange, Mint, and Black.
The design comes with a fixed ear fin. This unique feature compared to Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus or the Jabra Elite Active 75t. it comes in an average size to support the ear bud to stay put inside your ear. This helps better fit while you are jogging and clenching your teeth while working out in the gym. The three sizes of ear tips will help you choose what suits you the most so that it provides a good fit for your ear.
