Google Pixel Buds A-Series TWS Earbuds with Google Assistant Hands-Free Calling and Adaptive Sound Introduced in India


The Google Pixel Buds A-Series headphones were launched in India as the latest True Wireless Stereo (TWS) offering from Google. The new TWS earbuds are designed as a cheaper version of the Pixel Buds introduced in 2019. The Pixel Buds A-series earbuds are equipped with dynamic 12mm drivers that were also found on the previous Pixel Buds. That being said, there are other similarities between the Pixel Buds and Pixel Buds A-Series. The new Pixel Buds A series can deliver up to 24 hours of playback time with the charging case.

Google Pixel Buds A-series price in India, availability

The price of the Google Pixel Buds A series TWS headphones is Rs. 9,999. The Pixel Buds A-Series earbuds will be available in a single Clearly White color option.

Google’s newly launched headphones will be available from August 25th through Flipkart, Reliance Digital and Tata Cliq. Google says more retailers will be selling the TWS earbuds in the future. It should be noted that Google India’s online store has not yet listed the new earbuds.

Google also announced in a press release that it will announce special introductory offers for the Pixel Buds A-series on the day of sale. The TWS earbuds were launched in the United States and Canada in June.

Google Pixel Buds A Series Specifications and Features

The TWS Pixel Buds A-series earbuds feature bespoke 12mm dynamic drivers that Google says provides full, clear and natural sound along with bass boost. The earphones are IPX4 certified for sweat and water resistance. They also have passive noise cancellation. The Pixel Buds A-Series earbuds use beamforming microphones that allow users to focus on their calls while drowning out external noise. The microphones can also be used to call up the Google Assistant by saying “Hey Google!” Voice command.

The cost-cutting measures are visible in the Google Pixel Buds A-Series. The TWS headphones lack the wireless charging function. There’s no support for swipe gesture controls to adjust the volume. The earbuds also lack the attention alert feature which would turn down the volume so users can hear urgent noises like a crying baby or sirens.

The TWS earbuds are equipped with Adaptive Sound, which increases or decreases the volume depending on the environment. The Pixel Buds A-Series also receive real-time translations for more than 40 languages ​​(including Bengali, Hindi and Tamil). The feature – along with other features like Fast Pair, Find my Device, Adaptive Sound, and more – works while users are using Pixel smartphones or devices running Android 6.0 or higher. The earphones can be connected as standard TWS earphones for any normal smartphone via Bluetooth.

The Google Pixel Buds A-series offers up to five hours of playback time on a single charge or up to 24 hours with the charging case. A 15 minute charge can provide up to three hours of playback time. While each earphone in the Pixel Buds A series measures 20.57 x 29.21 x 17.53 mm and weighs 5.10 grams, the charging case measures 62.99 x 46.99 x 24.89 mm.
