    For those that got the free A-Series buds, how's your experience been w/your P6? Happy w/sound quality & features?

    Mine are still wrapped. Trying to decide if I should sell or use them, either as my primary or back up buds. Thanks.

    I like them a lot. Call quality is great, people say it's crystal clear on their end. And music sounds great to me.

    I'm happy with them. I do alternate between my Samsung ones ...I was having a Bluetooth issue robotic action during calls ..I think it's a phone software issue which we shall see with this latest January update if it shows up..

    I use these in the house and blueparrott on road. They have gotten much better imo since the update. I have OG buds and these feel better and easier to use.

    They do the job. I have other, more expensive ear buds that sound better, but I find myself coming back to the Pixel A Buds. People I talk to on the phone are able to hear me more clearly when I use them, and the assistant works well.

    Love the buds, use them every day while walking the dog. Never had a drop out in music streaming from Youtube music, have taken limited calls with the buds but each one I did I had no issues with sound quality or the other person hearing me. I can't complain for free, these are easily the best earbuds I've used.

    I've had mine about 2 weeks now and I love them. They definitely have a diff sound from my AirPods pro I used on my iPhone, but they are soooo much more comfortable and I don't get ear pain. Also not having those stupid stems hanging down like the AirPods I don't get the constant clacking against my ear gages.

    My third set of bluetooth earphones/earbuds. Definitely the best pair I've ever owned. Fitment is excellent. I love the in-ear detection which automatically turns the buds on for use. Easy Google integration with Assistant and pairing with Pixel phones. Sound quality for music is just a bit short of excellent, but is very, very good. Sound quality on calls is excellent as reported by friends. I don't have any complaints about battery life; I use them about an hour a day maybe 3-4 days a week. I get through a whole week without recharge.

    One thing though, I've noticed that every time I use the Pixel Buds A the bass slider control seems to reset to the neutral setting. I then need to open the app and adjust the bass back to my preferred setting. Can any one else confirm this happens to them as well?

    This happens to me also everytime I have to tap on the bass slider to max then back to my setting.

    Personally I love them. My first wireless buds were the Samsung Gear Icon X which hurt my ears if I wore them for any length of time, and had strange connection issues. So I went with the Pixel Buds 2, which looked more comfortable. Turns out they were MUCH more comfortable, but had there own strange connection issues. Replaced those with the Pixel Buds Series A, and they have been perfect. Comfortable enough to wear most of the day, and a fairly rock solid connection.

    I love them. I've used each pixel bud generation and prior to that I went through 3 sets of Samsung buds which all failed weeks into using to them.

    Love the pixel buds.

    I have used all of these.
    Pixel Buds A series - Best to pair with Pixel 6. Use mainly for phone calls
    Sennheiser Momentum TW2 - Music Music Music (mind blowing sound)
    One Plus Buds Pro - Best multipoint Bluetooth, Use between my work laptop & Pixel 6 pro to take calls/meetings while working.
    Jabra 75t - okay multipoint Bluetooth. Stopped using after i got OP Buds Pro
    Technics EZ40 - Multipoint but worst out of all, Returned on day#1 of use.
    How's the Pixel A Buds?-pxl_20220126_222452195.jpg

    Just used mine for the first time last week. Music sounded good, esp once I found the equalizer. Was impressed I was able to use Google Assistant voice commands despite the snow blower running. All in all,I like them. My only negative is I don't like the way they set in my ear. Just don't feel real secure. And not the small part that has interchangeable sizes, but the larger part of it. Never had any similar so maybe that's not unique to these... dunno.

    I actually don't mind it pretty well built and very comfortable. I really wish it had noise cancellation that would've been nice. I love the fact that's it has a strong magnet so buds don't fall off easily. Missing wireless charging but it's ok to plug in with USB c charges much faster. I have the Huawei buds pro (has everything awareness, noise cancellation, and good bass and mids) I really enjoy those as well my only complaint is when I wear my winter hat it falls off easily because it sticks out where the Google a series doesn't stick out at all.

    I was given a pair of AirPods Pro. Yeah, I know. They sound good, not necessarily great. I disabled AAC. Well built, and there are 3rd party apps that show battery percentage and enable triggering Google Assistant, which is cool. But the ANC is excellent. No problem watching movies on a flight. I'll likely shop for something to push music sound quality to the next level, but it would be difficult going back to BT buds w/o ANC, and why I decided to sell the A series.

    Past few weeks the buds have been cutting out on me. Random times in a phone call BT will transfer call back to handset no rhyme or reason. You will be talking and all of a sudden silence. Pick up phone and have to switch back to buds. It's odd since I used these on a 12 Pro and they worked perfectly on calls just no Siri.
