Although the spotlight right now is on the cheaper Google earbuds, there have been some new changes for the 2nd-generation edition. The most recent instance includes many US stores offering a $50 discount on the new Google Pixel Buds.

[Update: Canada, the United Kingdom, and Europe] Until May 3rd, you will get a $50 discount on Pixel Buds

Update 2: Google has reduced the price of the Pixel Buds in Canada ($239 versus $169), the United Kingdom (£179 versus £129), and other European countries (€199 versus €139). The sales began on Wednesday and will finish on Monday, May 3rd.

Update: This offer will be available for a little over two weeks on the Google Store. Other stores are likely to meet the May 3rd deadline.

Pixel Buds are $50 off. Starts at 12:00 a.m. PT on April 16, 2021, and expires at 11:59 p.m. PT on May 3, 2021, when stocks last and subject to availability. Only nationals of the United States are eligible. You must be at least 18 years old. The bid cannot be paired with other deals and is not transferable unless otherwise specified. Purchases must be done via the Google Store in the United States. Cash or cash equivalents are not accepted. Where prohibited, this offer is void.

Original 4/15: As of this evening, the Pixel Buds are $50 off at the Google Store, Best Buy, Verizon, and B&H photo. Almost Black, Clearly White, and Very Mint are among the items that have been reduced in volume, according to the latter retailer.

This contract is strange because the headphones are nearly a year old. After their introduction, Google has not discounted the Pixel Buds by more than $20. The presence of Pixel Buds A necessitates Google continuing to market the more expensive model — in some way — as an improvement option. We just noticed that the A version appears to be losing the swipe motion for volume adjustment, as well as several other functions, in order to achieve the predicted lower price.

In the meantime, Google stopped marketing the Ever So Orange one over the weekend. The Pixel 4 and the company's first fully wireless earbuds were released in October 2019, but they didn't arrive in the United States until April the next year. It took three months for the international launch, and it was originally only available in white until the other three models were released in August.

The Pixel Buds have touch-sensitive domes that accept a variety of taps and swipes to monitor audio playback, phone calls and trigger Assistant, as well as the "Hey Google" hotword. A rubber "stabilizer arc" keeps them near your ear, while the "spatial vent" keeps them out of the way and lets you hear what's going on around you.

A single charge gives you up to five hours of listening time (2.5 hours of chat time), and the egg-shaped charging case gives you 24 hours. It can be charged by USB-C or wirelessly. Google included 12mm dynamic speaker drivers as well as IPX4 waterproofing. A voice accelerometer measures speech by jawbone movements, while dual beam-forming microphones block background noise. For automatic play/pause, IR proximity sensors sense when the buds are in your ear.

Bass Boost, Find My Device integration, and creative Attention Alerts were all introduced to the Pixel Buds during a big functionality update in August.
