Such autonomy was never dreamed of by any AirPods. Google introduced Pixel Buds Pro headphones
Google introduced the Pixel 6a smartphone, nominally announced the Pixel Watch and showed the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. And besides that, she also released new headphones called Pixel Buds Pro, which were recently rumored.
This is Google’s top $200 headphone model. In comparison, Buds A cost half as much.
So, what can conditional competitors of AirPods Pro do? For example, they can amaze with autonomy. Google says 11 hours, and that’s not including the case! Such autonomy is usually only a dream for completely wireless models. With the case, we are already talking about 31 hours. True, all these indicators are achieved with active noise reduction technology turned off, and it is available here. If you activate noise reduction, autonomy drops to 7 hours, which is still more than most competitors.
The noise reduction technology in the Buds Pro deserves special attention, since Google created a special six-core audio processor and developed special algorithms for its implementation. Noise reduction is based on Silent Seal technology, which is responsible for adapting the system to the shape of the ear of each user. Google claims that you won’t experience ear congestion when using noise cancellation with the Buds Pro.
Of course, the headphones support Google Assistant, they have a transparency mode, and they are also able to connect to two sources simultaneously. It is worth noting the protection against moisture and dust (IPx4). On sale, the novelty will appear with the Pixel 6a on July 21.
From the rest, you can select touch control, support including iOS, as well as a mass of 6.2 g for each earbud and 62.4 g for the case.
Marshall Amplification was bought by Zound Industries, which has been producing Marshall headphones and speakers for 12 years.
Marshall Amplification, best known for its guitar amplifiers, was sold to the Swedish company Zound Industries. The irony of the situation is that it was Zound Industries that in recent years, since 2010, has been releasing headphones and speakers under the Marshall brand.
The amount of the transaction is unknown, but it is reported that 24% of the shares remained with the Marshall family. By the way, as a result of the merger after the completion of the transaction, a private company Marshall Group will be obtained.
Jeremy de Maillard, who is currently the CEO of Zound, will also become the CEO of the Marshall Group in the future. He does not expect any changes for the two companies, which means that the business will not be significantly affected by the merger. Including there will be no changes in the development process of headphones and acoustic systems.
We haven’t released a single Zound product that hasn’t been approved by a Marshall acoustic engineer. It’s a complete extension of what we do, except we’re one and the same now.
AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C connector may come out this summer
Apple recently released a developer preview of iOS 16.4 that includes references to the new AirPods with model number A3048 and the new AirPods case with model number A2968.
According to well-known analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, we are talking about the fully wireless version of the AirPods Pro 2 headphones with a USB-C connector. Recall that Apple released AirPods Pro 2 with a Lightning connector at the end of last year. Bulk shipments of the new headphones are expected between the second and third quarters of this year.
Kuo didn’t say anything else about the new AirPods Pro 2. It’s not clear if these will be the same AirPods Pro 2 that come in a USB-C case, or if they’ll get some other hardware changes.
Apple is also expected to release the iPhone 15 lineup this year with a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port, with Kuo claiming that Apple currently has no plans to release USB-C versions of the AirPods 2 and AirPods 3.
The very unusual design of the Huawei FreeBuds 5 headphones is inspired by Rupert’s ultra-strong glass drops
Huawei introduced the FreeBuds 5 headphones, which stand out with a very unusual design.
As you can see, they look like some kind of frozen liquid, and this is no accident. According to the company, this design was inspired by the so-called Rupert drops – frozen drops of tempered glass, which, due to their internal structure, stand out for their extreme strength.
As for the technical part, they are based on 11 mm drivers, the headphones support L2HC and LDAC, boast an autonomy of 30 hours, but this is taking into account the case, they support fast charging and are protected from moisture (IP54). The company is asking $130 for the device.
