The Google Pixel Buds 2 is yet to go up for sale, and during the times of the coronavirus pandemic, any possible commercial availability is certain to be delayed in any case. Nevertheless, the Pixel Buds 2 recently appeared on US store Abt Electronics, revealing what is possibly the full set of features of the new true wireless earbuds, as well as the expected price of the Pixel Buds 2. According to the listing, which has since been deleted from the website, the Pixel Buds 2 is priced at $179, or about Rs 13,500.
According to the listing, the Pixel Buds 2 would come with 12mm dynamic drivers, through which Google promises “high quality audio”. The listing also claims that the Buds can automatically detect phone calls and attenuate background noise to make the voice sound clear. In terms of the fit, the Pixel Buds 2 appear to come with a three-point anchor system in order to keep them at place, as well as a “spatial vent” that does not make the fit too tight, something that can be an issue for claustrophobic users.
The Pixel Buds 2 also have sweat and water resistance, and touch control on the outside to play and pause music, receive phone calls, and swipe up or down to adjust volume. Expectedly, the earphones come with voice search integration for the Google Assistant, and supports fast pairing (plus one-tap pairing with a Pixel device). The Pixel Buds 2 case can be charged wirelessly with the Pixel Stand, which sums up an expected set of features for the Pixel Buds 2.
With the mentioned price tag right now, the Pixel Buds 2 does come across as slightly expensive, since a myriad assortment of decent sounding earphones with similar features are available in the market, possibly at a lesser price as well. Going forward, it will be interesting to see if the Pixel Buds 2 comes to India later this year, and the eventual price that Google decides for the earbuds in the country.
