Google Pixel Buds Pro are the company’s new flagship headphones. They replace the 2020 Pixel Buds, which were discontinued in 2021 following countless reports of failed logins and other bugs. The Pixel Buds Pro cost $200, varying by country, doubling the price of Google’s budget headphones, the Pixel Buds A-Series.
Pixel Buds Pro carries over the basic design of the Pixel Buds series, even using the same charging case, but removes the “wing” tips that some users have learned to dislike. The new headphones also add additional microphones to enable active noise cancellation (ANC). This feature is also built on top of a custom audio processor in headphones that can better adjust the noise cancellation. There are also active pressure adjustments to get rid of the ‘wired’ feeling that so often plagues ANC-equipped headphones. Google also claims the headphones will be capable of 11 hours of continuous playtime on a single charge.
