Google Pixel Buds Vs Apple AirPods – The Battle of the Earbuds

On October 4, Google launched its new flagship Pixel telephones, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. Nonetheless, the largest motive for which Google stored on mocking Apple final 12 months appeared like a joke when Google introduced their flagships with out the headphone jack. Sure, this time they traded it off for getting IP 67 water resistance score.

As a substitute Google introduced its personal new branded wi-fi earbuds referred to as Pixel Buds. The buds observe within the strides of Apple’s personal wi-fi earbuds, the AirPods, that suggests everyone will likely be evaluating the 2 wi-fi buds selecting which one to go for. We’ve got assembled this comparability that will help you out in your determination.

Battery Specs: 60 mAh

Weight:4 grams every

Connectivity: Bluetooth, W1 chip

Charging Case: USB Kind-C


Getting the best impediment off the overwhelmed path, to start with, there may be little or no to match between these two selections, because the AirPods and Pixel Buds are each estimated at $159. The primary difficulty as of now lies in accessibility for the reason that Pixel Buds won’t dispatch till November, and that’s if Google doesn’t preserve working into any provide points.


Bodily, every group’s wi-fi earbuds look essentially modified. Apple’s resembles a white theoretical blossom with an extended stem and a fats bud that matches in your ear. Google’s then once more appears are spherical and extra intensive. Every part is scrunched collectively. A size of rope likewise fastens Google’s Pixel Buds collectively, which is a nice contact because it implies it might forestall one of many buds from tumbling to the bottom. So design smart Pixel Buds have the higher edge. Nonetheless, AirPods are the one who completes the definition of wi-fi.


Each earbuds have faucet controls, nonetheless, the Pixel Buds provide extra. Apple’s AirPods allow you to play and pause music via a faucet. The Pixel Buds allow you to do this as effectively, but they likewise have a contact floor that lets you swipe crosswise over them to vary the quantity.

AI Assistants & Translation

Clearly, each earbuds provide every group’s AI assistants (directed by means of your cellular phone). The AirPods provide Siri and the Pixel Buds gives Google’s Assistant. I imagine it’s simple which is superior: Google’s Assistant. However, in case you’re a non-English speaker, Siri wins, as it’s accessible in quite a few extra dialects.

In any case, one area with the Pixel Buds wins clearly is their capability to translate conversations repeatedly. No one has actually tried this element but, so we have now to carry as much as understand how effectively it capabilities.

Battery Life

The best objective of the dispute regarding our cell telephones or Bluetooth earphones is battery life. Who must handle to cost their earphones within the wake of using them for under an hour or two?

But it seems that Apple and Google might have issues made sense of. Each the AirPods and Pixel Buds are evaluated for as much as 5 hours of utilization with every cost.

Furthermore, Apple and Google each declare that their charging instances will give as much as 24 hours of battery life for the earphones. That could be a wild declare, but in my alternative with the AirPods, it definitely holds up.

Speaking about charging, Apple ensures that the charging the AirPods for under quarter-hour will give customers to three hours of extra battery life. With respect to the Pixel Buds, Google asserts that quarter-hour of charging will give customers an extra hour of battery life. Clearly, Apple will get approval right here, but mileage might fluctuate in case you’re simply using them with an Android gadget, which doesn’t exploit Apple’s W1 chip.

Contemplating the way in which that the Pixel Buds will not be launched but, we might want to preserve a be careful if Google’s instances maintain up after a while.


Each devices are suitable with the group’s completely different units. For example, AirPods are meant to be utilized (and have each certainly one of its highlights accessible as effectively) with iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs, and Macs. Google’s Pixel Buds (because the identify proposes) are meant to work with the group’s Pixel phone line in addition to with lately launched Pixel E book. In any case, since each earbuds make the most of Bluetooth, they may work with different phones- solely the higher a part of the highlights won’t be accessible to these telephones.


That is by far my most favorite element concerning the AirPods and I can’t make clear that I’m so desirous to see one thing comparative originating from Google. While you open the AirPods unexpectedly round your iPhone, a immediate exhibits up requesting you to attach them.

As indicated by Google, comparable usefulness will go to the Pixel Buds, implying that when your case opens, you’ll have the capability to affiliate together with your gadget with solely a faucet of the button. That is HUGE because it expels the necessity to expertise and handle the irritating matching process that proprietors of Bluetooth earphones must proper now handle.

The very best half concerning the Pixel Buds is that this characteristic won’t be restricted to the Pixel 2/2 XL. Quite, you’ll require a gadget working in any occasion Android 6.0 Marshmallow and have Google Assistant launched on the gadget. Which, advantageously sufficient, merely superior onto the Play Retailer as an impartial software.


The AirPods are unquestionably advantageous contemplating the way in which that the wires are gone, nonetheless, you don’t get any extra usefulness when using them on an Android cellphone, because the higher a part of the enjoyable stuff is held for iOS shoppers.

On this means, the suitable response right here for Android customers is self-evident. Within the occasion that you haven’t pre-ordered your Pixel Buds but do it proper now. As someone who proper now claims AirPods, I actually can hardly wait to get my arms (or ears) on the Pixel Buds to place them by means of hell. Inform us what you assume and within the occasion that you may be grabbing a pair for your self.
