It’s difficult to keep-up with all the cutting-edge technology that is now available in the modern world; there are countless 21st-Century inventions that all of us should know about, and Google’s new Bluetooth headphones called Pixel Buds are no exception. These new headphones are wired behind the neck, and they should rival Apple’s AirPods headphones for popularity. What’s more, Pixel Buds will be available in November and they can translate 40 different languages—and they’ll only be priced at around $159.
It may seem as though they should be priced significantly higher, but an onstage demo of Pixel Buds’ language translation features was extremely convincing pertaining to the product’s overall quality; the Buds were able to both efficiently and effectively translate a conversation from English to Swedish. More specifically, the translations occurred only 1-2 seconds after each sentence was finished, and the presenter proclaimed that it was like “having a personal translator by your side.” It should be noted that a Pixel 2 is required in order to fully utilize these features, but it should also be noted that the entire demonstration was provided by way of the internet without having to download any add-ons.
It’s also surprising how much easier to use technology is these days; it’s not like a toddler could figure it out, but it’s far less complex than it was years ago. For instance, all you need to do to activate Pixel Buds is press the right “earbud,” and touch controls manage things like pausing music and accessing assistance. Lastly, Pixel Buds come with a rechargeable case that powers the battery for a whole day in only a few hours, and they will be available in white, black and blue—just like the Pixel 2.
