Google Pixel Buds Pro review

The pebble-like case of the Google Pixel Buds Pro feels sturdy and cool in our hands, and the brushed plastic never collects fingerprint smudges. 

It charges wirelessly or via USB-C, though it's important to note that you won't get a charging cable in the box, which doesn't feel premium.

We prefer smaller eartips but struggle to get the Google Pixel Buds Pro to fit securely in our ears. The shape is a bit like a small flip-top backpack or knapsack.

 and it doesn't feel particularly well-weighted or ergonomic, although the neck of the buds is nicely angled at an angle between your ear canals.

Google launched its original Pixel Buds in 2020 and followed them up with the more affordable Google Pixel Buds A-Series.

 the sound quality when listening to music is an improvement over Google's previous efforts. But that's where the praise falls short.

Each Google Pixel Buds Pro earbud has a relatively large 11mm dynamic driver, which should be good for a competent performance.

 early on in our testing we became aware of a number of shortcomings in sonic performance.

The Google Pixel Buds Pro look sharp and they pack a lot for the price tag.
