Google has just launched the second generation of its AirPods competitor, the Pixel Buds, and it comes with an array of welcomed upgrades.

Designed to sit flush with your ear, Google says it has scanned thousands in order to find the perfect fit, allowing for a low profile aesthetic whilst reducing the chances of you getting them knocked out. In-ear, they come with three different sizes of ear tips to create the perfect seal and environmental sound isolation. Inside, it’s powered by two 12-millimeter dynamic speaker drivers, dual beam-forming microphones and even a voice accelerometer which tracks the vibrations in your jawbones to provide even better sound quality. They provide convenient access to Google Assistant, support real-time translation, and also boast Adaptive Sound technology which allows the earphones to automatically adjust your music volume depending on the surrounding noise levels. Supporting any Bluetooth 4.0 devices, the Pixel Buds aren’t restricted to just Android devices, they’re also compatible with iPhones.

Available in four colours, each coming with a white wireless charging case, Google’s second-gen Pixel Buds are now available for $180 USD over on Google’s website.

Elsewhere in tech, Samsung leaks suggest a new smartphone with a pop-up camera is coming.
