Poll results: the Pixel Buds look... acceptable


So, after removing the headphone jack on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google now has its own wireless earbuds up for sale — the Pixel Buds. Small in-ear phones that come with a neckband to address all those "What if one falls off?" concerns — with the band, you can lose both at the same time!

We kid, we kid. The Pixel Buds do come with a special feature of their own and one that has us plenty excited — the real-time translation! We'll see how that works once we get our hands on them...

Of course, the new earphones also have their own unique look. With large pads that act as touch controls and 3 colors to choose from, they definitely have a special flavor to them. The question is, do you like their look? We ran the poll yesterday and around half of the voters say they love them, about a third don't, and the rest just don't care that much about the way their earbuds look. Well.. we'll see just how many of those we end up seeing on the street!

Do you like how the Pixel Buds look?

Yeah, sure!

They are better than the pixel buds and probably the most innovative product Apple has released in a while. People here hating on Airpods obviously have not used them. Also, it says you're a member since 2014 yet only have 309 posts? Is this a dedicated multiple account of someone else? Phonearena please fix this problem where people have multiple accounts.

"and probably the most innovative product Apple has released in a while." That is a pretty low baseline to compare to...

People hating on AirPod obviously have not used them? So all the reviewers who state, that the Airpods sound almost identical to the headphones that are boxed with the iPhone are all lying? What about Apple loyalists who say the exact same thing?

Well can you blame them, they're blind. Of course they'll vote based on quality if they can't see the damn things. Why are Apple fans such dicks?

The polls ask about looks. The Pixel buds look cool. Whether they are form over function, no one knows because no one has a pair, unless they have the phone. So what job have they done? You assume everyone who voted is an Android user, while many iPhone users don't like the AirPods, me being one of them. You're just a jerk!

They're freaking earbuds. Form over function. That said, having a cord on them makes them much less likely to get dropped/lost.

People were not saying form over function when Airpods were released.

I saw plenty of comments not just about how silly they looked, but how easily they could be lost. That's not practical.

Because the Airpods have neither.

"Small in-ear phones that come with a neckband to address all those "What if one falls off?" concerns — with the band, you can lose both at the same time!" HAHAHA! I actually found that to be pretty damn funny especial since I am currently wearing earbuds of the same style lol.

"iPhone SE is smaller than iPhone 8, thus increasing the likelihood of losing the entire phone. Therefore we cannot recommend it."

I use Jaybird X2 for morning run (for 2 years), and I can say, if one fall off it will just dangling in front of your chest, and you can't not notice it, lol...

Yes it's even funnier because there's strap for AirPods as well and of course it sell separately.

Why is everything about look on this site? What about the actual fictionally? I believe Google Pixel Buds are providing the best functionality compared to all other devices.

A lot of the comments here are quite fictional.

Apple Tampons ohh i mean Airpods are just basic there are far more better headphones/Airpods(i am using Airpods because iFans have started to think headphones are called Airpods) If they sell more doesnt mean its a better product. Pixel buds(Airpods) looks OK cant say anything about Pixel Buds(Airpods) because its not yet released and i haven't seen any reviews yet.
