Reach your goals with some unexpected help.
Tune out distractions and turn up your motivation with Pixel Buds Pro.

It’s no secret that setting goals to do more, less, or differently is the easy part.

Sticking with your grand plans, well, that’s the real challenge. 

Now for the encouraging news: Pixel Buds Pro just might be one solution to staying on track. Whether you’re hoping to improve your productivity, boost your fitness, or crank up the fun while doing your daily chores, count on Pixel Buds Pro every step of the way.

Maybe one of your goals is to stay more focused on the task at hand. Pixel Buds Pro can be a huge help. Take it from David Andrade, who knows he can rely on his Pixel Buds Pro to help block out external noise, making it easier for him to concentrate when working from home with his spouse, school-aged daughter, and four cats.

“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 cats.” Pixel Buds Pro’s Active Noise Cancellation with Silent Seal™ helps him stay focused. It’s powered by a custom processor, custom algorithms, and custom speakers to maximize the amount of noise canceled.

As an IT solutions provider, he’s often on video meetings, frequently switching between his phone and computer with little time to charge his devices.1 So Andrade appreciates that his earbuds can automatically switch to whichever device he’s using, and that he can wear them all day, every day, thanks to their 11-hour battery and comfortable fit.

Pixel Buds Pro can also help protect long-term hearing health. Using the Hearing Wellness feature in the Pixel Buds app, you can see how loud you’ve been listening to your music and podcasts over time, and what adjustments you can make to help maintain auditory health. 

A fit for any activity

Looking to amp up your activity level? Workout warriors love the secure fit of Pixel Buds Pro. Thanks to better weight distribution, moldable tips, and sensors that actively measure and relieve the pressure in your ear, they stay secure and comfortable even during rigorous workouts with lots of movement.

That’s good news for James Coloso, who listens to upbeat hip-hop on his earbuds to motivate himself while pushing through a run on the treadmill, and then transitions 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 him concentrate 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 [Pixel Buds Pro] on a daily basis.”

Hands-free at home

Maybe one of your goals this year has come through the encouragement of others – such as being more helpful around the house. According to Greg Baas, Pixel Buds Pro can help boost your motivation, and even your fun, when it comes to getting tasks done.

For 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. Baas just pops in his earbuds and uses voice commands to pause or play music, adjust the volume, respond to texts, and more.2 Using his voice means he doesn’t have to worry about touching his face or phone when his hands are dirty. As he turns the volume up and down, Volume EQ adjusts the tuning so that the highs, mids, and lows consistently sound balanced at any level.3

“It gets me more motivated to clean,” he says.

When he’s out riding the mower, Active Noise Cancellation 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.”

How premium sounds.

If Greg wants or needs to hear outside sounds, Transparency mode lets him do so while he listens to his favorite music. And with Conversation Detection, when he starts speaking, his earbuds automatically pause and switch to Transparency mode, then resume once he’s done talking.

Whether you’re hoping to increase your productivity, enhance your fitness, or make everyday chores more enjoyable, you can count on Pixel Buds Pro to help you along the way.
