We've known for a couple of weeks that Google is working on a new set of true wireless Pixel Buds, and it's rumored that they'll be a mercifully cheaper variant. The "Pixel Buds A" were spotted hanging out at the FCC, with enough info to speculate that they're similar in form factor to the current model. Today Google sent out a promotional image in a Nest email that, apparently, shows off the new buds a little early.
While some Android phones still include headphone jacks in 2021, most of us have moved onto wireless headphones (whether by choice or by force). If you're looking for an extra set to throw in a gym bag, or you've finally given up on the fight for wires, Aukey has a huge selection of wireless earbuds to pick from as part of Amazon's Deal of the Day.
It can be tough to shop for headphones these days. With so many great options around, making sure you pick the right ones can seem impossible. Thankfully, if ANC is a must-have feature, your decision just got a lot easier. Sony's WH-1000XM4 are the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy today, and eBay has them marked down to $260 — a new low for non-refurbished units.
If I told you that Razer is making something it calls "smart glasses" (and if you were a cynical and jaded follower of tech news), you might ask, "but where do the RGB lights go?" The answer is nowhere. Surprisingly, Razer's new Anzu smart glasses don't feature any. They're essentially a riff on Bose's Bluetooth audio sunglasses, and they don't feel especially gamer-focused.
Whether you're working from home or spend a lot of time commuting, active noise-cancelling headphones help isolate yourself from unwanted noise. Although Bose and Sony get most of the attention, some other contenders are very relevant. Microsoft's first-generation Surface headphones are a great alternative, despite having been replaced with a more modern version. They traditionally sell for $250, but you can get them for just $111 on Woot today.
When we reviewed the Sony WH-1000XM4, we ranked them as the best product in their category. Sadly, they cost a whopping $350, which can be a roadblock for many. Thankfully, you can get them for just $228 today, provided you're willing to buy a refurbished product.
V-Moda has been producing high-quality audio products for years, and the company's headphones are best known for their recognizable hexagon design. Now you can get the V-Moda Crossfade 2 Wireless headphones for $199.99 from the company's website, a savings of $80 over the usual price.
ANC headphones can get pricey, but if you don't need the best of the best, there are some good bargains available. Case in point: the Razer Opus. Already fairly priced at their normal $200, you can cop a pair for $60 off right now at Amazon.
Apple has become a big name in wireless headphones with AirPods, which are easily the most popular and recognizable earbuds worldwide. AirPods provide reliable connectivity and an all-around great wireless earbud experience, but the sound quality can't compete with a nice set of over-ear headphones. That's what the AirPods Max are about.
