Ok I spent some time with the Pixel Buds Ppro and I didn’t rush to do a review just three days after receiving them as it would be unfair and just lies being honest to get an honest opinion too, I was also hoping the full EQ suite would come now, but it hasn’t but when that update drops I’ll be back with more and frankly this is a PRO pair of headphones this should have been included at launch but it is what it is and that’s how things work on the technology. world.
I gave a first impression when the review embargo was lifted, but as mentioned there wasn’t enough time and since then my thoughts are even better again, minus the EQ upgrade, having said you could get away with even using it. The headphones are so good, reaching. for the price they are some may feel let down but having used the pixel buds now since their inception let down is not the word I would use at all but again they are on the higher side with the price there are other manufacturers charging more and give less for your hard-earned money.
We’re not going down this road or “are they worth buying” clickbait as with any review and we’ll just tell you how it is and that’s it and that’s how we always operate and the same applies to our video review below where we have a look at them in our hands and get a real context.
The case and battery
The case is slightly larger as it looks unboxed, unless I need to have my eyes examined, which is still fine. I love the design though and it feels like a rock in your hand and it also comes with wireless charging which is great for me, the lids snap shut. it also seems sturdy and shouldn’t pop open and the earbuds shouldn’t fall out even though the magnet is strong. If you’re not into wireless charging, you should also note that just 5 minutes of charging from a mains network will get you up to an hour. They mostly live up to expectations and what manufacturers claim, but shed around 30-45 minutes at max volume and ANC over the total time, which is 7 hours.
size and fit
So as in the unboxing nothing has changed here they are bigger than before they are missing their wing tips but they don’t stick out too much either people may be used to smaller mint shaped pixel buds A series that They are still a great pair of headphones today but these fit well and won’t fall out as they stay secure and stay put.
The app is once again excellent and has all the expected features except for the full EQ suite at the time of writing this review. they can be called if necessary, as they are often lost in the house, especially if you have children. The connection is super fast, as you will see in the video review, which is great.
Also in the app you have the Google Assistant battery levels touch controls, which are swipes/gestures, single, double or triple taps, and tap and hold, though the latter is for the Assistant, which can also be customized. to toggle active noise control left or right. side. In general, all the controls mentioned worked very well for me during the test.
Yes it has ANC which has improved it also has transparency and Off and again everything worked fine for me the ANC is really good this time however everyone’s ears are different but they are up there with headphones ANC ok acquaintances.
The most important part but I still think it’s better to come with the full EQ suite being honest this has happened before with a previous couple and as it is they do a great job they’re just well balanced with a bit of bass but I think they could be stronger though, that’s more of a personal preference, but they are decently strong nonetheless and work with custom 11mm drivers.
Treble, bass and mids are fine too and for musical movies and more you’ll be happy with what’s on offer overall even some brand loyalists may be impressed here you also need to do the seal test to get the best results as with any headset that offers this feature which is now seen more often especially in the high end and make sure you have the right tips as well. Depending on what you listen to you may find some differences with instruments, voice and genres but overall not much to complain about, calls were also fine on both ends for me and there was a problem before calls dropped on his first pair of headphones, but this seems to have been fixed by now anyway from what I’ve seen for myself.
The Assistant here is also really cool, which will allow you to read messages and emails etc without touching your phone. I love this feature and it should become the standard today with the added benefits of multipoint connection. you are a user of multiple devices at home or in the office.
For 219 euros which is considered a high and high end price they are one of the cheapest offerings out there its a bit better for less but the design may not suit them but if you like the aesthetics and the good sound overall, this is something to look at. We’ll come back when the EQ settings are updated and see what’s improved and we look forward to that.
