Google Pixel Buds Vs Apple AirPods – The Battle of the Earbuds


Google Pixel Buds Vs Apple AirPods – The Battle of the Earbuds


On October 4, Google delivered its new flagship Pixel phones, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. However, the biggest motive for which Google saved on mocking Apple last yr seemed like a joke while Google announced their flagships without the headphone jack. Yes, this time, they traded it off for purchasing IP sixty-seven water resistance score.

As an alternative, Google announced its personal new branded wi-fi earbuds referred to as Pixel Buds. The buds observe in the strides of Apple’s own wi-fi earbuds, the AirPods, that implies everyone can be comparing the 2 wi-fi buds choosing which one to head for. We have assembled this assessment to help you out with your choice.

Getting the greatest obstacle off the overwhelmed direction, initially, there is little or no to examine among these selections, as the AirPods and Pixel Buds are each predicted at $159. The important trouble is inaccessibility because the Pixel Buds will no longer dispatch until November, and that is if Google no longer preserves going for walks into any delivery issues.


Physically, each company’s wireless earbuds appearance basically changed. Apple’s resembles a white theoretical blossom with a long stem and a fat bud that suits your ear. Google’s then again looks are round and greater massive. Everything is scrunched together. Likewise, a length of rope fastens Google’s Pixel Buds collectively, which is a pleasing contact because it implies it can save you one of the buds from tumbling to the ground. So design-wise, Pixel Buds have the upper aspect. However, AirPods are the one who completes the definition of wireless.


Both earbuds have faucet controls. However, the Pixel Buds provide more. Apple’s AirPods allow you to play and pause tune through a faucet. The Pixel Buds enable you to do that as nicely, but they likewise have a hint surface that enables you to swipe crosswise over them to alternate the volume.

AI Assistants & Translation

Obviously, each earbud provides every corporation’s AI assistants (directed via your cell cellphone). The AirPods offer Siri, and the Pixel Buds gives Google’s Assistant. I trust it’s far simple that’s advanced: Google’s Assistant. Nevertheless, if you are a non-English speaker, Siri wins, as it’s far reachable in several more dialects.

In any case, one place with the Pixel Buds wins clearly is their potential to translate conversations continuously. Nobody has virtually attempted this aspect yet, so we should hold as much as understand how nicely its capabilities.

Battery Life

The best motive of the dispute regarding our mobile telephones or Bluetooth earphones is battery existence. Who desires to manage to charge their earphones in the wake of utilizing them for best an hour or two?

Yet, it seems that Apple and Google may also have matters made the feel of. Both the AirPods and Pixel Buds are evaluated for as much as five hours of utilization with every charge.

Moreover, both Apple and Google declare that their charging instances will surrender to 24 hours of battery life for the earphones. That is a wild declare, but in my possibility with the AirPods, it sincerely holds up.

Talking about charging, Apple ensures that charging the AirPods for only 15 minutes will supply users with 3 hours of extra battery lifestyles. With admiration to the Pixel Buds, Google asserts that 15 minutes of charging will provide customers an extra hour of battery life. Clearly, Apple gets approval right here, yet mileage may also differ if you utilize them with an Android machine, which no longer makes the most Apple’s W1 chip.

Considering how the Pixel Buds aren’t launched, we can want to preserve a watch out if Google’s instances maintain up after some time.


Both gadgets are well-matched with the company’s unique devices. For instance, AirPods are supposed to be applied (and feature everyone in every one of its highlights handy as properly) with iPhones, iPods, Apple TVs, and Macs. Google’s Pixel Buds (as the name proposes) are supposed to paintings with the agency’s Pixel smartphone line and with the recently launched Pixel Book. In any case, considering both earbuds make use of Bluetooth, they may work with different telephones- most effective, the greater a part of the highlights will now not be handy to the one’s telephones.


This is, by way of ways, my maximum preferred thing, approximately the AirPods, and I can’t clarify that I am so eager to look at something comparative originating from Google. When you open the AirPods abruptly around your iPhone, a set-off suggests up requesting you to attach them.

As indicated by way of Google, comparable usefulness will go to the Pixel Buds, implying that when your case opens, you will have the capability to companion together with your system with only a facet of the button. This is HUGE as it expels the want to experience and manage the hectic matching method that proprietors of Bluetooth earphones want to manipulate right now.

The first-rate element about the Pixel Buds is that this selection will now not be restrained by the Pixel 2/2 XL. Rather, you’ll require a machine running on any occasion Android 6.0 Marshmallow and feature Google Assistant delivered on the machine. Which, advantageously enough, in reality, advanced onto the Play Store as an impartial application.


The AirPods are absolutely high-quality, thinking about the way that the wires are long past. However, you no longer get any extra usefulness whilst using them on an Android cellphone because the extra part of the amusing stuff is held for its clients.

In this manner, the precise response right here for Android customers is self-evident on the occasion that you haven’t pre-ordered your Pixel Buds but do it right now. As somebody who right now claims AirPods, I surely can hardly wait to get my palms (or ears) on the Pixel Buds to place them thru hell. Tell us what you observed, and on the occasion that you’ll be grabbing a couple for yourself.
