Simple buds worth $100 can be paired with your phone immediately and are very simple to use, but they sacrifice some of the features of the higher-priced buds. However, when you have a comfortable fit, good sound, and anti-perspiration level of AirPods for exercise at a reasonable price, you really don’t need much other things. For most people, the A series is the best entry-level product, but for Android users it is a matter of course.
Sleek and slender
In many ways, the A series is Higher-level pixel buds Starting in 2020, Google is still selling.Just like the company’s Pixel smartphone, This A kind Shows that this model is an economical choice with streamlined functions.
They still have an oval and matte white shell, which feels like the standard configuration of Stormtroopers. Flick opened the top hatch, and the familiar round earplugs appeared in the field of vision, this time in white or elegant olive green.a little bit G Let you know who made it on each earplug.
Earrings like elephant trunks pop up on the top of each bud to ensure they are safe in your ears, and I have seen some critics complaining that they are not removable. It’s not me to blame. The earplugs are very small, basically one size fits all, and the earplugs are flexible enough to fit any ear evenly.
Technically, these buds are smaller and lighter than the previous Pixel Buds, but only a few milligrams. They are light enough to stay comfortable during strenuous exercise. In fact, they are one of the most comfortable and stable earplugs I have tested in some time, and they can easily withstand long-distance running, drumming, and various games with my dog.
Open the case, unplug the headset, the phone with Android 6.0 and above will recognize the headset, download it now Pixel bud applicationAnd pair with them. When I put them in for the first time, I listened to music within a few seconds.It’s worth noting that this quick pairing Bluetooth function for Android is already available on many recent headsets From SamsungWait, it’s always nice to see it working. This is the first time I have encountered such a cheap pair, it is flawless.
Several owners complained that the Bluetooth connection problem was related to the audio interruption on the previous Pixel Buds, which sometimes occurred due to interference or weak signal, so you will be happy to hear that I did not encounter this problem on the A series. Before things got choppy, I was able to be 20 to 30 feet away from the phone in the backyard, which is not surprising.
The touch control on the outside of each bud works well and fully meets your expectations. Click to play or pause, double-click to change the song, click and hold to activate Google Assistant, and so on. Unfortunately, the volume cannot be adjusted without unplugging the phone. During exercise, touching the buttons usually annoys me because my sweaty hair often triggers them to switch songs or pause music during running, but this did not happen on these IPX4 headphones. They just accidentally paused my tune once or twice.
Shockingly detailed sound
In terms of acoustics, the new A series is very similar to its more expensive counterparts. The internal 12mm dynamic driver can provide plenty of bass, but it will not feel mushy or fuzzy in the bass. It feels weird to say that because I don’t have standard headphones that I wear every day, but the sound characteristics feel very natural. It reminds me of many excellent wired in-ear headphones from Sony, Shure, and other companies that I have tried over the years.
