Google Pixel Buds Review: Lost in Translation

Google Pixel Buds Review: Lost in Translation

The Pixel 2 may not have a headphone jack, but the Google Pixel Buds promise to make you forget all about your legacy port.

Sadly, though, the Pixel Buds aren't the AirPods-killers we were hoping for.

Bose puts Noise-Masking Sleep buds to the Indiegogo test

Most earphones are designed to keep unwanted noise out and your music in while you go about your busy day.

Samsung Gear IconX (2018) Review

Samsung Gear IconX (2018) Review

Calling Bluetooth earbuds "cordless" when they still have a cord connecting them always seemed like a cheat to me, so I had high hopes for the Samsung Gear IconX 2018 edition. Revamping the original wire-free earbuds of last year with more battery life and faster charging, they're a second chance for the company to take on Apple's widely-esteemed AirPods. And, given they'll play nicely with iOS devices just as they will Android, even iPhone owners are invited to the party.
