Do you like how the Google Pixel Buds look?


Last week, Google announced its own pair of wireless earbuds, mirroring products like the Apple AirPods. But Google's headset comes with its own perks — for one, you've got 3 different colors to pick from, and you've also got the amazing real-time translation!

When the AirPods were announced last year, they got their fair share of mockery. They certainly look a bit peculiar and many were quick to peg them as being "ugly". Well, the Google Buds also have their own unique appearance with a large bulgy pad sticking out of the user's ears. Yes, it's used as the touch area for controls and Google Voice Assistant activation. But... it still has that uber-size earring look.

So, what do you think about the way the Pixel Buds look?

These look like crap. Airpods look far better.

Lol are you for real?! Lol sheep. AirPods look worse than the ones that come included in the box. In fact, they look like the ones in the box after you take some scissors to the wires. These at least look like they attempted a design. Icon x or beats look much better than both though.

He's just saying that to bait a fight. Don't be a fish.

Airpods look better than pixel buds.

Both are uninspired design but personally people will look less foolish with the buds then the airpods...

Don't worry if there was an apple sticker on the pixel buds they'd be saying the opposite

Why not? They put it on the iPhone 6 and Apple watch.

These airpod copies are good for....... probably nothing. They might be useful for translators who work with military or/and gov delegates in the United Nations....lolzzzz But even so I can use my smartphone to translate any language live at anytime any where. For Music, podcasts and fun Airpods are clearly the better choice.

Yeah, Airpods are outstanding. These can't even compare

Airpods bass is crap compared to any decent cheap in-ear. But you know it, apple is the best no matter what. Just like old meme 'Beats is the best!'

Airpods are much more functional and look much better than these semi-wireless earphones which are unbelievably over priced. .

Should have had a no but still much better looking than those ugly air pods option.

Looks? Fine. What do they sound like is what matters. They can be the ugliest buds in the world, but if they sound awesome, it won't matter what they look like.

Buds can't compare to in-ear type in sound quality.

Look great and the translation feature is extremely useful. Looks way better those alien weird looking apple things.

I just want to know how they sound, actual range, and real world battery life. If all checks out, then I may pair them up with my OG XL.

They look fine. I like the look of bragi dash/ iconX but I prefer my earbuds to be connected in some way so that I won't lose them. Airpods look like something spilling from ear.

Try beats X cheaper, better looking and has better sound then icon x and airpods and they stay in ears pretty well you won’t lose them easily. Beats X is the only product I would recommend from beats. They are worth for what they are.

I'm waiting for a good BT 5.0 earbuds. They might appear at CES 2018. I have a Beats studio HD and the AKG earphones that I got with my S8+ serve very well for now

"Last week, Google announced its own pair of wireless earbuds, mirroring products like the Apple AirPods." Sooooooooo, none of you imbeciles that like the Air Pods even noticed this untrue, Apple ass kissing statement? Sad.

They look a heck of a lot better than those ugly ass AirPods. Those things look like tampons.
