Google Pixel Buds A-Series
Still holds up
The Pixel Buds A-Series may be lacking a bunch of useful features, but if you’re in the market for some solid earbuds with a bit of Google magic, you’re in the right place.
When it comes to the world of truly wireless earbuds, the market is packed with plenty of great options. Google began dabbling in the space with the OG Pixel Buds (with the wire) before ditching the wire with the Pixel Buds (2020). There’s even been one iterative release in the Pixel Buds A-Series that kept the same form factor as its predecessor, while removing a few features to reduce cost.
Even after providing a downgraded version in the A-Series, in an effort to meet the sub-$100 price point, Google still had yet to release a version of earbuds with ANC. That’s all changed now that the Pixel Buds Pro are available, aiming to fix many of the concerns that users have had with the various Pixel Buds models over the years.
