Ha ha ha, he had it under his 2 fingers and already had one in his pocket.

If the translation isn’t vastly improved it’s not worth it in my opinion because with the problem with translate with pixel 1 you were basically using google translate the whole time

I just want some buds with good noise cancelation and voice quality. I loved the sound quality on my Pixel 2. I hope they put that tech into these.

I tried Samsung Buds, horrible. Tried Jabra 65T not very good

galaxy buds knockoff

If this had active noise cancellation I'd get it.

The best wireless earbuds of 2019 are the Samsung Galaxy buds It's not even a debate hands down

January 21, 2020

I'll probably buy the Google buds when they release but I think the Samsung buds are the best design and sound

I wish all of Googles competitors had wireless headphones that weren't going to take 6 months.

Looks great & hopefully works well with G-Translator but hopefully you can get an 'over the ear' clip in the kit, as I guess they are easy to loose? Now do I buy WT2 now or wait 6 months to get to Finland?

I'm due for an upgrade. I have the Pixel 2 currently and am on a 2 year plan, but I'm a little disappointed with the new pixel. Not sure if I should wait any longer or just upgrade now and deal with having the 4 for another two years

Samsung bud is more important

Do these translate language?

Recently, they randomly started to connect, despite being securely in the case. Multiple Google support calls about issues described by others, resulting in 2 replacements the first year. The random connection issue is new. They are now disabled ("forget" bluetooth). Not worth the money, and I got them half price with my Pixel 2 XL phone.

Honestly I was gonna buy fake airpods because i dont have an iPhone for it but now that Google introduced this I'm so glad

January 21, 2020

Do they have ANC?

January 21, 2020

I was really looking forward to the Pixel Pixel, a single OLED that displays the colors of Google's logo
