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


On October four, Google launched its new flagship Pixel telephones, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. Nevertheless, the largest purpose for which Google saved on mocking Apple final 12 months appeared like a joke when Google introduced their flagships with out the headphone jack. Sure, this time they traded it off for getting IP 67 water resistance score.

In its place Google introduced its personal new branded wi-fi earbuds known as Pixel Buds. The buds comply with within the strides of Apple’s personal wi-fi earbuds, the AirPods, that suggests everyone might be evaluating the 2 wi-fi buds selecting which one to go for. We’ve got assembled this comparability that can assist you out in your choice.

Getting the best impediment off the overwhelmed path, to start with, there may be little or no to match between these two selections, because the AirPods and Pixel Buds are each estimated at $159. The principle difficulty as of now lies in accessibility because the Pixel Buds is not going to dispatch till November, and that’s if Google doesn’t hold operating into any provide points.


Bodily, every group’s wi-fi earbuds look basically modified. Apple’s resembles a white theoretical blossom with a protracted stem and a fats bud that matches in your ear. Google’s then once more seems to be are spherical and extra intensive. Every little thing is scrunched collectively. A size of rope likewise fastens Google’s Pixel Buds collectively, which is a nice contact because it implies it may stop one of many buds from tumbling to the bottom. So design sensible Pixel Buds have the higher edge. Nevertheless, AirPods are the one who completes the definition of wi-fi.


Each earbuds have faucet controls, nevertheless, the Pixel Buds provide extra. Apple’s AirPods allow you to play and pause music by way of a faucet. The Pixel Buds allow you to do this as properly, but they likewise have a contact floor that allows you to swipe crosswise over them to alter the amount.

AI Assistants & Translation

Clearly, each earbuds provide every group’s AI assistants (directed by way of your cellular phone). The AirPods provide Siri and the Pixel Buds provides Google’s Assistant. I consider it’s plain which is superior: Google’s Assistant. However, in case you’re a non-English speaker, Siri wins, as it’s accessible in quite a few extra dialects.

In any case, one area with the Pixel Buds wins clearly is their capability to translate conversations repeatedly. No one has actually tried this part but, so we now have to carry as much as understand how properly it features.

Battery Life

The best goal of the dispute regarding our cell telephones or Bluetooth earphones is battery life. Who must handle to cost their earphones within the wake of using them for under an hour or two?

But it seems that Apple and Google could have issues made sense of. Each the AirPods and Pixel Buds are evaluated for as much as 5 hours of utilization with every cost.

Furthermore, Apple and Google each declare that their charging instances will give as much as 24 hours of battery life for the earphones. That could be a wild declare, but in my alternative with the AirPods, it actually holds up.

Speaking about charging, Apple ensures that the charging the AirPods for under 15 minutes will give customers to three hours of further battery life. With respect to the Pixel Buds, Google asserts that 15 minutes of charging will give customers a further hour of battery life. Clearly, Apple will get approval right here, but mileage could fluctuate in case you’re simply using them with an Android gadget, which doesn’t exploit Apple’s W1 chip.

Contemplating the best way that the Pixel Buds usually are not launched but, we might want to hold a be careful if Google’s instances maintain up after a while.


Each devices are appropriate with the group’s totally different gadgets. As an illustration, AirPods are meant to be utilized (and have each one in all its highlights accessible as properly) with iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs, and Macs. Google’s Pixel Buds (because the title proposes) are meant to work with the group’s Pixel phone line in addition to with lately launched Pixel E-book. In any case, since each earbuds make the most of Bluetooth, they’ll work with different phones- solely the larger a part of the highlights is not going to be accessible to these telephones.


That is by far my most favorite part concerning the AirPods and I can’t make clear that I’m so wanting to see one thing comparative originating from Google. While you open the AirPods unexpectedly round your iPhone, a immediate exhibits up requesting you to attach them.

As indicated by Google, comparable usefulness will go to the Pixel Buds, implying that when your case opens, you should have the capability to affiliate along with your gadget with solely a faucet of the button. That is HUGE because it expels the necessity to expertise and handle the irritating matching process that proprietors of Bluetooth earphones must proper now handle.

One of the best half concerning the Pixel Buds is that this characteristic is not going to be restricted to the Pixel 2/2 XL. Somewhat, you’ll require a gadget operating in any occasion Android Marshmallow and have Google Assistant launched on the gadget. Which, advantageously sufficient, merely superior onto the Play Retailer as an unbiased utility.


The AirPods are unquestionably advantageous contemplating the best way that the wires are gone, nevertheless, you don’t get any further usefulness when using them on an Android telephone, because the larger a part of the enjoyable stuff is held for iOS purchasers.

On this approach, the suitable response right here for Android customers is self-evident. Within the occasion that you haven’t pre-ordered your Pixel Buds but do it proper now. As someone who proper now claims AirPods, I really can hardly wait to get my arms (or ears) on the Pixel Buds to place them by way of hell. Inform us what you assume and within the occasion that you’ll be grabbing a pair for your self.
