The wireless earbuds market is only getting more competitive, and companies are always jumping in with new releases that are better and cheaper than anything we’ve been hearing before. This is far more true in the case of Google’s Pixel Buds Pro, the fourth release in the Pixel Buds series, and easily one of the best. Normally, the Buds Pro retail for $200, but right now they’re on sale for just $175 ($25 off) on Amazon.
When we reviewed the Pixel Buds Pro, Google’s premium ANC wireless earbuds, we really liked them—hence the nearly perfect 9.0 rating. We were already happy to recommend the Pixel Buds Pro at $200 as a solid pair of earbuds, and that $25 discount makes them all the more appealing.
Google broke its streak of decently mediocre earbuds this year with the release of the Pixel Buds Pro. The company kept the best aspects of previous Pixel Buds offerings – mainly good audio quality and solid connectivity – while pretty much everything else improved. Now offering ANC as well as an excellent transparency mode, the Buds Pro lets users turn the outside world on or off with a single tap.
The Buds Pro vastly improves on its predecessors in the battery life department, claiming 7 hours of playtime with ANC on and 11 hours with ANC off. With a comfortable fit and IPX4 water resistance, these should withstand any challenge you throw at them—without popping out of your ears, which is a plus. Additionally, the Pixel Buds support multipoint audio for quick switching between connected devices.
There’s already a lot to like here for $200, and at $175, the Buds Pro actually starts to look even more appealing. If you grab this deal, you can rest assured that you’ve bought an incredible pair of earbuds for a cheap price.
