I would wait for these to go lower. Not worth it even at $130

Maybe someone who owns these can comment, but I own the ones that came with the Pixel 3. They are really uncomfortable, and falls out often even when the loop-thingy on the buds are adjusted. It's a shame.

Seems like a good idea, but the earbuds that came on the Pixel 3 are incredibly impractical. Resorted to using my old $20 earbuds instead.

Tempted to try these just because there don't seem to be a lot of options for earphones that aren't fully sealed or noise cancelling or that don't jam deep into your ear - I always find those way too uncomfortable.

Doesn't sound like a great price for these.

Strange. Those loop are adjustable so that it doesn't fall out from ear. I don't have the issue you are describing. Sound quality is also very good for music.

Own the pixel 3xl, and I have the same comments about the wired version of these earbuds as you, they are uncomfortable when fitted tight enough that they won't fall out (by adjusting the loop longer, it pokes into other parts of the ear)

Same, the choices for ambient noise earbuds aren't much... Airpods... Generic China earbuds...

The sound quality is adequate for non-sealing earbuds... Most people will find it lacks any bass at all, and they aren't very loud... All due to its open non-sealing design

I got a pair I stopped using for a month now if anyone wants. Obviously I'd sterilize the #### out of them.

Were these the same ones that were supposed to do live translation of speech?
If so, I'd buy.

If they're just regular wireless earbuds, pass.

I got a friend that has the Aftershokz and he loves them for all that's worth. I've tried his too and they're pretty nice but its not truly silent. There's quite a bit of sound bleed at medium to high volumes.

I haven't compared battery life of headphones but these have 5 hours of play time.

I own the wired version which cost $30 from the Google Play Store and also came with my Pixel 3, which I think are pretty good headphones given the selection out there for USB-C headphones.

The sound is ok, possibly it's just my adjustment is wrong but the speaker hole seems to be facing downwards in my ear canal with the adjustment loop catered to my ear shape which probably contributes to the muffled sound.

The google assistant feature is actually helpful as it is instantaneous in listening when you hold the volume up button. Just speak and your phone will understand right away.

Durability is alright, I have used them for the gym and running and they stay on pretty well.

I could assume most of these facts apply to the wireless version but if I had a choice, I prefer wired all the time as its one less thing to think about charging!
