Even though these earbuds have a somewhat boomy audio contour, their low-bass response is mostly underemphasized, which is quite similar to the Apple EarPods and Google Pixel Buds 2017 Wireless. Vocals and lead instruments may sound chaotic and muddy, but the treble is fairly well-reproduced, so they should also exist adequately detailed.

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.

Dips


0.93 dB

The peaks and dips performance is satisfactory. While most of the range is decently flat, at that place are a couple of deviations. An extended bump across the bass range and early on mid-range creates some boominess and makes vocals and pb instruments sound cluttered and muddy. 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.

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.

They don’t really block out any noise in the bass and mid-ranges, and so y’all may hear quite a flake of rumble from passing buses and construction equipment, not to mention the chatter of nearby pedestrians. 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.

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.

However, that still isn’t too bad, and they should still be acceptable for watching movies or streaming videos.
