Reviewing the Pixel Buds, Android Central's Andrew Martonik said:
While the Buds did (and still do to some extent) have teething issues at launch, Google has promised to fix them with upcoming updates, including one which it pushed out just a few weeks ago.
Pixel Buds (2020)
The 2020 Pixel Buds are a well designed, very Googly take on wireless earbuds. Their software features are useful if you buy into the usefulness of digital assistants, but it's the sound quality and physical design of these AirPods contenders that draw the most accolades.
The new colors will be available and sell out in seconds because they'll put out a small stock. That's one thing I hate about Google. They never put out enough product, ever!! You don't see Apple doing that..
Cause they know people won't buy them.
Why would I buy what is a poor imitation of Apple's superior Airpods in the latest failure from Google? The Pixel flop Buds.
