However, the forthcoming Pixel Buds variants would be oh so orange, quite mint, and almost black and dark olive when it announced the headphones in April. All five colors are on display on the US Google Store, but can't only clearly white can be purchased as of now.
The Pixel Buds A-Series comes with custom-designed 12mm dynamic speaker drivers for full, clear, and natural sound. They have a spatial vent to reduce in-ear pressure, and a stabilizer arc certifies a gentle but secure fit.
Other specifications include Adaptive Sound to turn up/down the volume based on your environment, beamforming mics to focus on one's voice and reduce outside noise, nearly five hours of listening time on a single charge, or up to 24 hours usage of 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.
In comparison to the earlier launched Pixel Buds, the Pixel Buds A-Series lacks wind reduction, wireless charging, swiping for volume control, and notification alerts.
