David Andrade is no stranger to noise. But he might hear more meows than human voices.
Andrade relies on his
“I love the fit and really love using Active Noise Cancellation,” he says. “It can get loud when my family is home, and I need to block out the background noises – it gets a little crazy around here with the kids and the cats.”
Active Noise Cancellation with Silent Seal™ is powered by a custom processor, custom algorithms, and custom speakers to maximize the amount of noise canceled, giving him a quiet workspace.
For Greg Baas, one of the standout benefits of his Pixel Buds Pro is his ability to control them hands-free when he’s doing household chores. He pops the earbuds into his ears and uses voice commands to pause or play music, adjust the volume, respond to texts, and more.3 Using his voice means he doesn’t have to worry about touching his face or phone when his hands are dirty. As he adjusts the volume up and down, Volume EQ adjusts the tuning so that highs, mids, and lows consistently sound balanced at any level.1
“It gets me more motivated to clean,” he says.
When out riding the mower, ANC lets him listen to his music and podcasts so clearly that he once had to mow his lawn twice. “I was so immersed in the episode, I didn’t even realize the blades of the mower stopped from getting caught on a bump in the yard,” he says. “That tells you the Pixel Buds Pro are really good.”
And when he wants or needs to hear outside sounds, Transparency mode enables him to do so while he listens to his favorite music.
Workout warriors also rely on the secure fit of Pixel Buds Pro – they fit snugly in the ears without making them feel plugged up. Thanks to better weight distribution, moldable tips, and sensors that actively measure and relieve the pressure in your ear, they stay comfortable even in rigorous workouts with a lot of movement.
That’s good news for James Coloso, who starts a trip to the gym listening to upbeat hip-hop on his earbuds to motivate himself while pushing through a run on the treadmill or a ride on the stationary bike, before transitioning to smooth, calm R&B to lift light weights.
Coloso says being able to block out noise and other distractions with Active Noise Cancellation is key to a successful workout because it helps focus on the beats that anchor his breathing and movements. “I’m able to stay focused on my music and my workout,” he says. “I use the [Pixel Buds Pro] on a daily basis.”
