As part of Google’s offensive in Switzerland, the Pixel Buds Pro are positioned in the upper price segment! Handling and multimedia test: The headphones in the two-tone porcelain/anthracite version are available for 199 francs in the Google online shop.

These Pixel Buds immediately surprise with their look in this two-tone version. Enough to stand out in a bloated market! In this constellation, these tips score points in combination with the ultimate Pixels 8 and Pixels 8 Pro.

Ideal with Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro

They are linked to the latest standards from the world’s leading search engine at the speed of light. Unlike pairing on other smartphone models that require the Pixel Buds application, the settings for the various options are set directly in the Bluetooth settings.

Various screenshots below show the range of features offered on the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, some of which are available on devices from manufacturers that compete with Google. First, check if the HD Sound option is enabled to benefit from the best possible sound quality.

Noise cancellation and AI

Obviously, we are immediately tempted to test the functionalities associated with artificial intelligence (AI). For example, these headphones are able to automatically switch to transparent mode so that the wearer of the headphones can clearly hear the person they are talking to. If this functionality starts quickly, it will take some time for noise cancellation to resume. Improve.

On the Google Assistant side it is possible to ask it to increase or decrease the volume by X% or even go to the previous song. You can also ask him about “Vivaldi’s Four Seasons,” but if you ask him about winter, he offers a playlist dedicated to that time of year. There is also room for improvement with this “AI” that has difficulty understanding us.

Successful ergonomics

As for the ears, we have to admit that they are simply outstanding; both comfortable to wear and with decent passive noise reduction. In the settings, you can use algorithms to check whether you have chosen the right size earbuds and whether the headphones fit correctly in your ears. Well seen!

In a noisy environment, we find that these Pixel Buds are perhaps a little more comfortable to wear than Sony’s, but the active noise cancellation lags a bit, especially when it comes to voices. The default basic volume also seems to be slightly lower than other models.

Valuable options

The application part available in Bluetooth settings is well designed. On the sound side, Google offers transparent mode, ambient noise reduction or deactivation. You can also adjust the left-right balance or opt for mono mode. Interesting.

On the equalization page you have the option of choosing a standard setting, such as “Heavy Bass”, “Vocal Amplification”, “Balanced” or “Clarity”. And if no preset value meets your expectations, there is always the option to individually adjust the equalization of the frequency ranges.

High quality sound

After mastering these different options, it is appropriate to continue listening to these headphones, whose tactile surfaces also allow you to control them. A short tap to pause, a long tap to see the time or status of notifications, and a double tap to go to the next song.

These headphones are definitely very comfortable on the ears as they adapt well to my body shape and provide balanced and detailed sound. The different frequencies are well represented and the bass is powerful without being intrusive: in short, these Pixel Buds Pro deliver high-quality sound, especially in combination with the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro.

After all, Google offers high-quality headphones online starting at around 175 francs. The suppression of ambient noise is considerable without being the most aggressive on the market. Due to their characteristics, these headphones with Qi-compatible wireless charging case offer good value for money, although Huawei offers some very interesting models.
