Someone got Pixel Buds Pro too soon
Written by admin

Google’s Pixel Buds Pro are available for pre-order now ahead of their July 28 release, but one user has already gotten their hands on the earbuds, giving us a preview of what to expect and showing how they compare to the A Series.

u/Linkakox posted on Reddit to the r/GooglePixel subreddit this morning, revealing that Pixel Buds Pro had somehow already landed on his doorstep.


The order was through, a French retailer. Apparently the pre-order was placed on July 21st, but the site hadn’t implemented the “pre-order” restriction yet, which apparently allowed this user to slip through the cracks and get their order early.

Whatever it is, what does that tell us?

Well, first we get some early impressions on the earbuds. According to u/Linkakox, the Pixel Buds Pro sound better than the A-series Pixel Buds when it comes to music and that the buds are also physically slightly larger than the A-series. In terms of fit, it mentions that they “feel less secure” compared to the A-series Pixel Buds.

Active noise-cancellation (ANC) seems to be good too, and multipoint audio seems to work.

As seen below, a brief gallery of images shows the earbuds’ packaging and a comparison to the Pixel Buds A Series. Looking at the earbuds themselves, the Pro model appears much more bulbous than the A series and of course lacks the “fin” of previous Google earbuds. The housing of the Pixel Buds Pro looks noticeably wider and thicker. Another image shared with us shows a small tube containing extra earbuds. There is no charging method at all in the box, not even a USB-C cable is included. Of course, Pixel Buds Pro can use the same charger as your Pixel, even if it’s a wireless charger.

Delving a little further, we asked u/Linkakox about the software situation with the Pixel Buds Pro, which seems to be the only thing stopping these earbuds from being ready for everyone based on these first impressions.

The existing Pixel Buds companion app does not support all Pixel Buds Pro features such as B. ANC settings. However, the touch controls seem to work to switch between ANC and transparency modes. Pressing an earbud for two seconds toggles between the two modes.

Multipoint can even be accessed from Android’s settings menu. Apparently the Buds are working with a Windows machine with multipoint functionality – after all, multipoint is a Bluetooth feature, it’s just Google’s smart switch runs through fast pair.

Google will ship the Pixel Buds Pro to all users on July 28th. with the $199 earbuds alongside ANC, up to 31 hours of battery life, a custom audio chip, and more. stay tuned for more
