  • I wish you did the mic quality for calls. Wondering if they are good for work.

  • Hi, do you guys know if there is still this volume issue? I heard that these buds are lacking on volume

  • I had to return my pixel buds gen 2. The audio was cutting off with my pixel 3 xl, and that is unacceptable with $200 earphones. Aesthetically they were awesome, and in house were awesome. Just couldnt run outside with them. Google Support tried for 1.5hr to help me debug with no success. :(((

  • I just recently got a pair and had to get a replacement and now I'm gonna get a refund because apparently they have a huge problem with them abruptly disconnecting and reconnecting which makes it sound like you lost sound for a brief second which has been my experience with both of the pairs I had which is sad cause I really enjoyed them

  • My daily earbuds are the airpod pros for calls and the Sony mx4 for content/music. It’s just the call quality on the airpod pros is more clear even without canceling the background sound.

    Daniel SDaniel Sپیش 3 ماه
  • The pixel buds are hot garbage! Mine were a technological disaster! Apparently some people have received a set of good well functioning buds while others like me received a pile of dog food. Google just cannot get their act together. And I've been going through a nightmare of a process with them to get a replacement set of buds or a refund of my money.

    Tomer abitbul eizenTomer abitbul eizenپیش 3 ماه
    • I agree Galaxy Buds+ seem to offer some of the best bang for the buck, but I must confess I'm not a huge fan of their design or the low IPX2 rating. Personally, I ended up buying Anker's Souncore Liberty 2 because I like their design more, the case extends battery life further and reviews seem to indicate they might have better sound quality (though that might be a matter of taste). Still, I really dislike the AirPods because they are so uncomfortable with their all-plastic design, they fall out of my ears and they don't sound like $200 earbuds.

    nathan thebenathan thebeپیش 3 ماه
  • Why do people like that it turns off automatically when you take ONE earbud out?! It pisses me off so much. I like to occasionally take one out to scratch that particular ear during long listens, and it's a pain in the ass for the playback to pause. Make it switchable!

    Jacob CarJacob Carپیش 3 ماه
  • I've just got my new Pixel buds and I'd like to correct one small thing from this video The Google assistant tap on the headphones doesn't always give you the time and notification report. If you tap and hold for a sec, then let go without saying anything, you get the report. If you tap and hold, wait a sec for the beep, say what you want and THEN let go, she doesn't give you your notifications. Otherwise great review and I love the Pixel Buds. I also love controlling my lights like an FBI agent.

  • I like the AirPod Pro because they are not so big in the ear, and the stem is nostalgic. Most of the stemless Android buds look to me like people are putting large marbles in their ears.

  • Ordered a pair of the Pixel Buds 2 and they are just pure garbage just like all the comments say, WTF James are you giving good reviews to shit products for cash now? I only ordered these because of your video and the trust you had garnered from your previous videos you and Linus both. Your going to hurt your credibility such a shame.

    David HDavid Hپیش 3 ماه
    • They tested it with the original buds, and honestly, the technology hasn't changed much since. Live translation just isn't here yet (as cool and useful as it would be to have), and its accuracy depends on your phrasing, word choice, and which languages you are using. It's all the same tech as google translate's live conversation feature.

    Alex CAlex Cپیش 3 ماه
    • If you are using them with other Apple devices... Apple's AirPods are equally as finicky over a standard Bluetooth connection when connecting to Android or Windows devices. It's a lot easier to establish wireless connections and integration when you control the entire ecosystem. That said, I'm sure the experience as an iPhone user is great, which is why people pay extra for something that "just works".

  • Hey this is more of a question for those who already own these. I want to get a pair of these for not just daily use as music earbuds but also as my earbuds to use while playing VR and more specifically Beat Saber. I'm tired of getting my Arctis 7s soaked in sweat after a really good workout sesh in beat saber, and i'm sure the heat the big cans trap in only add to the amount of sweat I produce making the problem only worse. My only hesitation right now in seeing the pixel earbuds as an option is if there is noticeable delay since it's a non-wired connection. It's been a long time since I've gotten them but I have a set of bluetooth headphones that have great sound quality but noticeable audio delay and I am unsure if that's a problem that's been fixed across the board or not.

    • Only bluetooth headphones with Aptx low latency codec support will cut it for gaming use, and for rhythm games there still is perceivable lag. Also, aptx-ll has limited support on windows and you will need a separate Bluetooth dongle. Here is the current list of aptx-ll certified buds . Best bet is wired buds with short cord for VR.
