The Pixel Slate is effectively up to $450 off with this keyboard bundle deal

Initial reviews, including our own, took issue with slow performance, unreliable Bluetooth connectivity, and an exorbitant price that made it hard to recommend.

Pixel Buds firmware update reduces lag and improves connectivity

Google tried to take on Apple's AirPods with its Pixel Buds, but as we all know, that didn't work out too well – the Pixel Buds aren't truly wireless and connect to each other with a cord, and coupled with some additional issues like poor audio and a finicky charging case, they never stood a chance. However, if you bought them prepared for these problems, you still got headphones with stellar Google Assistant support and quick pairing, so there's that.
