I love my Pixelbuds.. the originals. Just about every day I use them. I have to admit, I'm not a fan of losing that string, but that string can be bothersome in a run or bike ride. It bounces around, or tugs against skin, pulling on the other ear.
Since the AirPods there have been a lot of other immitators out there, and if something's popular enough, well, why not join it.
The 2nd generation of Pixelbuds ... well, now Pixel Buds (not even giving them a "2" or "2020" ... just separate the words - and I swear... Mandela effect maybe, that the term was pixelbuds before) have been talked about for a long time. I had given my review on the originals back in December of 2017. That's a long time to wait for a sequel.
Well, they're here now... but not for Canada ... yet.
I've been watching every review on them so far... pretty mixed, but I can't wait to try them out and maybe finally let the originals retire, although they're still stellar and my favourite pair of headphones overall.
