The Review on Google Pixel Buds A-Series
Last year’s Pixel Buds were disappointing, offering mediocre sound quality plagued by Bluetooth artifacts for an overpriced $179. Google’s Pixel Buds A-series look the same, but cost a lot less for $ 99 and they solve most of the audio problems we encountered with their predecessors, with clean, balanced sound. Most importantly, they continue to deliver the best hands-free Google Assistant voice control you’ll find in any pair of true wireless earphones. While the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro offers active noise cancellation and better bass for $30 more, Google Assistant power users can be better served by the Pixel Buds A Series. They look and feel the same
The Pixel Buds A-Series are available in white or olive green (which is more gray than green) and have the exact same physical design as the previous Pixel Buds. the ears feature round bodies with matte outer panels with embossed Google logos. Relatively long stems extend from the curved, glossy inner surfaces of the earbuds, ending in silicone ear tips (three pairs in different sizes are included). Small, curved, stick-like rubber finned poke up from another part of the earcup to provide stabilization in your ear. These fins are permanently attached, which is quite unique considering that most wireless earphones with fins use removable silicone covers.
The matte back panel of each earcup is a touch-sensitive control surface. The controls are simple, with a single tap to play or pause a song or answer a call, a double tap to go to the next song, a triple tap to go back a song and press and hold hold to manually access your phone’s voice assistant. These gestures are not customizable and there are no volume controls. On the plus side, the touch surface is easily accessible and not overly sensitive like on the Amazon Echo Buds and Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro; I have never accidentally tapped a command when inserting, removing or adjusting the earbuds.
The earbuds are IPX4 rated, so they’re resistant to water and sweat, but you shouldn’t submerge them or hold them under running water to clean them. You also do not put wet earphones in the charging case, which is not protected against moisture. Google Pixel Buds A Series
The white charging case is shaped like a flat egg, with a flipup top and a USB-C port on the bottom. It looks and feels just like the Pixel Buds charging case, although it doesn’t support wireless charging. The back of the case is magnetized so you can easily place it on any metal surface when not in use. It is a beautiful, albeit esoteric, feature that’s not as convenient as charging the case by throwing it on a Qi pad.
According to Google, the Pixel Buds A-Series will last a long time up up to five hours, with an additional 24 hours of listening time in the charging case. Google Assistant support
Pairing the A-Series with an Android phone is quick and easy, but you’ll need to install the separate Pixel Buds app to enable hands-free Google Assistant. It should be noted that you can also use the earphones with an iPhone, in which case they work as a standard pair of Bluetooth earphones. If you’re planning to go that route, we recommend the aforementioned Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro earbuds instead (you could also go for the $159 AirPods, but we don’t think they offer the best sound quality). Google Pixel Buds A Series
The Pixel Buds A-Series have the same hands-free Google Assistant support as the Pixel Buds. Once the Pixel Buds app is installed on your phone, just say ‘Hey Google’ while wearing the earbuds to go up Google Assistant. You can then use the Google Assistant to do things like tell the news or the weather, answer questions, or control compatible smart home devices, just like using a Nest Hub or other smart speaker. Pixel Buds A Series Performance
We weren’t particularly impressed with last year’s Pixel Buds, largely due to the fact that they suffered from occasional audio interruptions and quite a bit of background noise. The good news is that we didn’t experience any of these issues with the A Series.
Occasionally the earphones are plugged into my phone only for call audio, requiring me to put them back in the case and take them out again to reconnect. This was quite rare, but frustrating when it happened. On the plus side, you can use both earbuds separately to take calls or listen to music; you don’t need them both at the same time.
In terms of audio performance, the A-Series Buds handle our bass test track, The Knife’s “Silent Shout”, at maximum volume without distortion, although the bass synth tones have very little presence in low frequencies. The kick drum hits sound nicely full, but they don’t provide a palpable power like more bass forward earphones can produce.
For less bass-oriented music, the earphones sound nicely balanced. The first acoustic guitar notes in Yes’ “Roundabout” take on a solid low-mid resonance and quite a bit of string texture in the higher frequencies. When the song starts off right, each element gets some attention while emphasizing the highs and highs. The vocals and cymbals are front and center in the mix, with the guitar and bassline moving into the background a bit, but the latter aren’t overwhelmed or obscured by the former. I heard a subtle hiss while listening to this track, but this can be attributed to the high-frequency response of the earphones bringing out track noise rather than Bluetooth issues.

The Crystal Method’s “Busy Child” sounds really good through the A Series. The occasional bass drum hits don’t sound like they’re backed up by a subwoofer, but they sound full enough to ominously accentuate the track. The drums, riffs and samples all come through clearly, with plenty of high-mid presence and good balance.
In front of phone calls, voice quality is good but not great. I could be heard fairly clearly on test calls as I walked down the street, but test recordings usually sounded a bit distant, with some echo.
The earphones also have the “adaptive sound” feature found on the previous Pixel Buds, which adjusts the volume based on ambient noise. We found the feature distracting, but you can easily disable it via the Pixel Buds app. Better Pixel Buttons
The Google Pixel Buds A-Series are much more attractive true wireless earphones than their predecessors, offering a much better overall experience for almost half the price. They are capable Google Assistant-focused competitors to the Amazon Echo Buds, dropping active noise cancellation and offering a more secure fit at a lower price. In terms of sound quality, the $130 Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro offers the best audio and active noise cancellation you’ll find in a pair of true wireless earphones under $200, earning them our Editors’ Choice award. But if you regularly use Google Assistant, the Pixel Buds A-Series is an attractive alternative. More within PCMag.com
