Google just announced its latest wireless earbuds, the Pixel Buds A-Series.

The Pixel Buds A-Series come with custom-designed 12mm dynamic speaker drivers for full, clear and natural sound. They also have a spatial vent to reduce in-ear pressure, and stabiliser arc to ensure a gentle, but secure fit.

Other specs include Adaptive Sound to turn up/down the volume based on your environment, beamforming mics to focus on your voice and reduce outside noise, up to five hours of listening time on a single charge or up to 24 hours using the charging case, a quick charge of 15 minutes for up to three hours of listening time, USB-C port, IPX4 rating for sweat and water resistance, and Google Assistant.

Compared to the earlier launched Pixel Buds, the Pixel Buds A-Series lacks features such as wind reduction, wireless charging, swipe for volume control, and attention alerts.

The Pixel Buds A-Series come in Clearly White and Dark Olive. Priced at US$99 (S$131), they are now available for pre-order in the US and Canada with shipping from June 17. If you're interested to get a pair, do join the waiting list on Google Store Singapore.
