Google has just unveiled the Pixel Buds Pro, the most premium version of its TWS earbud offerings at the Google I/O 2022 event. It was introduced alongside the Pixel 6a and teased devices.
The Pixel Buds Pro is the first pair of the series to feature active noise cancellation. It does this via a custom 6-core audio processor and custom algorithms. Additionally, the earbuds feature Silent Seal to adapt to the shape of your ears to maximize the noise cancelation.
They also feature a transparency mode like many other earbuds on the market.
Inside the earbuds are a custom 11mm driver. It also has Volume EQ to automatically adjust the sound based on the volume. This is coupled with a 5-band EQ for further customization.
They are also said to have a pressure sensor to actively measure pressure in your ears. The earbuds are then said to relieve the pressure for a more comfortable experience. How exactly it relieves the pressure though wasn’t mentioned.
The Pixel Buds Pro features beamforming microphones, a voice accelerometer, wind-blocking mesh covers, multipoint connectivity, and touch controls. The earbuds themselves have an IPX4 water resistance rating, while the case is rated at IPX2.
Speaking of the case, it is said to offer 20 hours of playback with ANC and 31 hours with it turned off. Meanwhile, the earbuds on their own are rated to give 7 hours with ANC and 11 hours without ANC. The case also supports wireless charging.
According to Google, the Pro variant will also receive an update later this year for spatial audio support.
The Google Pixel Buds Pro is available in Charcoal, Fog, Lemongrass, and Coral colorways. They are priced at USD 199.99 and will hit the shelves on July 21.
