After months of speculation, Google has finally launched its affordable pair of TWS earbuds, the Pixel Buds A-Series. Let’s have a look at the specifications, features, availability, and expected price of the Google Pixel Buds A-Series in Nepal.
Google Pixel Buds A-Series Overview:
To begin with, the Pixel Buds A-Series bears an identical design to its predecessor. On the inside of each bud is a new “stabilizer arc”, which the company claims will give a soft yet secure fit. Similarly, the charging case is designed in the same oval shape as the standard Pixel Buds.
The buds have an IPX4 rating for dust and water resistance and are available in two color configurations: Dark Olive and Clearly White.
Moving on, the Buds A-Series is equipped with the same 12mm dynamic driver like on the standard Pixel Buds. There is a new Bass Boost feature that should deliver deeper bass. Similarly, as one would expect from a TWS in this price bracket, there is no active noise cancellation feature here.
For clearer calls, it does feature noise reduction. Additionally, it also brings Adaptive Sound adjustment that switches between volume levels depending on your surrounding. In order to differentiate it from the more expensive Pixel Buds, the A-Series has a downgraded touch control mechanism.
Here, a single tap lets you play/pause the music or answer calls. Similarly, double and triple tap skips a track or plays the previous track, respectively. You can also press and hold either bud to summon Google Assistant. Yet, the one thing missing here is the volume control. Unlike the costlier Pixel Buds, the A-Series doesn’t let you swipe the buds to play around with volume levels.
There are some more features Google has slashed here from the previous-gen earbuds, like wireless charging. Pixel Buds A-Series has hands-free access to Google Assistant and real-time translations. Using this, you can still change the volume of buds by saying “Hey Google, turn up/down the volume”.
In terms of battery life, Google says the Buds A-Series will last you up to 5 hours on continuous playback—which can be extended up to 24 hours with the case. Furthermore, the Pixel Buds A-Series supports fast charging, which Google claims will deliver three hours of listening time in 15 minutes. Similarly, one hour of charging fuels the buds to their full capacity.
