Vocals and lead instruments may sound chaotic and muddy, but the treble is fairly well-reproduced, so they should also exist adequately detailed.
Avg. Std. Departure
The Google Pixel USB-C Earbuds provide sub-par frequency response consistency. Bass and treble response may vary significantly on separate listening sessions, which seems to be an unfortunate effect of their open-fit blueprint.
These earbuds have disappointing bass accuracy. They’re essentially lacking in low-bass, which results in a notable absence of thump and rumble. High-bass, meanwhile, is overemphasized, resulting in a fair bit of boominess and muddiness in some mixes. However, due to their sub-par frequency response consistency, your own listening feel may vary.
The Google Pixel USB-C Earbuds take decent mid accuracy. Vocals and lead instruments should sound nowadays and clear, but the overemphasized high-bass extends into the low mids, resulting in a dirty and chaotic listening experience.

Another crash-land in the high-mid through low-treble ranges causes some mixes to sound honky and harsh while an adjacent spike in the mid-treble is responsible for some slightly piercing higher frequencies.

Weighted Aamplitude Mismatch
Weighted Frequency Mismatch
Weighted Phase Mismatch
The Google Pixel USB-C Earbuds evangelize mediocre stereo imaging performance. The weighted group delay falls almost entirely beneath the audibility threshold, resulting in a tight bass and transparent treble. Even so, while the 50/R drivers are well-match in regards to phase response, there is significant aamplitude and frequency mismatch, which results in a less authentic localization of objects in the stereo image. This, in turn, gives a less immersive listening experience. These results are only valid for our exam unit, and yours may perform differently.

These earbuds have a terrible passive soundstage. Since they featherbed any sort of interaction with the outer-ear, they generate a adequately small soundstage. However, due to their open fit, they do a improve job of providing a more open listening experience than other earbuds.
The Google Pixel USB-C don’t have any virtual soundstage features.

The weighted harmonic distortion performance of these headphones is decent. There’s some distortion at moderate volumes in the low-bass range equally well equally most of the treble range, which has a slight touch on on their power to reproduce make clean and pure sound. That said, this distortion shouldn’t be too noticeable for most listeners.

While they do slightly reduce the volume of higher-pitched frequencies, similar the hum of A/C units, their performance in this respect is still quite poor. If you’re looking for a pair of USB-C in-ears with an ANC feature to assistance cut downwardly some ambient sound around you, check out the Razer Hammerhead USB-C ANC.
Overall Leakage @ 1ft
The racket leakage functioning of these headphones is nifty. Escaping audio is located in the treble range, so it may audio quite sparse. However, it should be lost beneath the noise floor of an average part, so you can listen to your music at moderately high volumes without worrying about disrupting nearby coworkers.
These earbuds have an in-line microphone.

The Google Pixel USB-C Earbuds accept a non-detachable USB-C sound connexion. They offer full audio and microphone compatibility with devices that have a USB-C port or a USB-C to USB-A adapter, as is the case for our test PC. Compared to headphones with an analog audio connector, there’s some audio latency, and we also measured a 60ms delay with an Android telephone. However, that still isn’t too bad, and they should still be acceptable for watching movies or streaming videos.
