If you missed out on Google’s Pixel Buds Pro when they went on sale in August, don’t worry: the tech giant is giving you another chance to buy the wireless earbuds at a discount. Google’s Pixel Buds Pro (in Charcoal and Lemongrass) are currently on sale for $175, or $25 less than their retail price. That’s the same price they were listed for when they first went on sale, and it’s also an all-time low for the model on the website. Given that the headphones only came out a couple of months ago, and they’re the first in the line with active noise cancellation (ANC), that’s already a great deal if you’ve been thinking about buying them in the first place.
Buy Google Pixel Buds Pro on Amazon – $175
We gave the Pixel Buds Pro a score of 87 in our review, where we praised them for having reliable touch controls and solid ANC. They use a six-core audio chip powered by Google’s algorithms for active noise cancellation, and they also have a feature called “Silent Seal” to ensure they can keep out as much ambient noise as possible. This Silent Seal tool uses sensors to adapt the earphones to the shape of your ear when ANC is activated, which also minimizes sound leakage.
We also commend the headphones for delivering pleasingly punchy bass. And if Volume EQ, which adapts the pitch when you adjust the volume, is activated, the bass remains powerful even at low volumes. Another thing we liked about the Pixel Buds Pro is that they support wireless charging unlike their predecessors, and they have a quick charge feature that gives you an hour of ANC listening after just five minutes.
In a nutshell, we found the Pixel Buds Pro to be Google’s best headphones to date. They’re also the tech giant’s most expensive model to date, so you probably don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to get them at a lower price.
