Pixel Buds: Less Awesome Than We Predicted

Pixel Buds: Less Awesome Than We Predicted

When Google released Pixel Buds alongside the Pixel 2 phone, we thought they were the star of the event. However, as reviews are surfacing, it appears they’re less awesome than we originally thought. Complaints include an awkward case, constantly cord slipping (causing them to fall out of the ear), an overly sensitive touch sensor, lack of ambient noise control, and more. Granted, this is Google’s first try, but it appears this one may not catch on. Still, we think it’s a great idea and we anxiously await version 2.
