During the Google Hardware Event 2017 on October 4, hardware product manager Juston Payne introduced the new Pixel Buds, an innovative pair of self-charging wireless headphones made specifically to work with the new Pixel 2. What makes these headphones so unique is the touchpad volume and selection control embedded in the right ear, easy access to Google Assistant and an incredible real time language translation tool on board. The Pixel Buds are available for pre-order.
