Google Pixel Buds A-Series: was $99 now $59 @ Amazon
Lowest price: Google's answer to Apple's AirPods are now $40 off at Amazon. In our review of the Pixel Buds A-Series, we said they offer a decent range of features for the money and are perfect for Pixel owners. While the A-Series aren’t the best-sounding earbuds out there, they sound better than competition like the first-gen Amazon Echo Buds at a price that can't be beat. If you’re a Google Pixel owner or have a modern Android phone, these are a really good option.
Price check: $59 @ Best Buy
In our Google Pixel Buds A-Series review, we had plenty of praise for these buds. We liked their slick design, build quality and integration with Google Assistant.
In terms of sound quality, the Pixel Buds A-Series are far from the best out there, but they’re good for the price; we heard crisp vocals and some good bass. Our reviewer found that mid-range frequencies lacked clarity, though, and heard some distortion at high volumes.
The Google Pixel Buds A-Series are also good on calls. On a Google Meet call, dialogue came through clearly on both ends. The Google Pixel Buds A-Series even offer a cool feature that can translate a conversation for you using Google Translate.
Google claims the A-Series buds can last for 5 hours of listening time, which we found to be accurate. This extends up to 24 hours with the included charging case. If you're in a hurry, the earbuds took 30 minutes to charge up to 56%, netting 2.5 hours of listening time. Bluetooth 5.0 and 4.0 support are included, as is IP4X water resistance.
The Google Pixel Buds A-Series are a great deal at $59, so snap this deal up before it’s gone. Or, for more options, check out our headphone deals coverage.
