INTRO: Google launched the long-awaited Pixel Buds 2 last month at a price range of $179. Just after Within a month’s period, Google’s support threads and a bunch of Reddit posts are getting filled up with random audio drop issues of the company’s latest truly wireless earbuds.
Pixel Earbuds 2 Suffering From Cutouts
According to Pixel Buds 2 users, the earbuds are suffering from audio cutouts while performing basic activities like walking around and jogging – the use-cases companies pitch to get users on board the wireless freedom hype-train. Some users are allegedly facing Bluetooth pairing issues as well.
Feedback of a User:
“I noticed that if I touched the left earbud or moved my head too much, it would cut out. I tried running with them and they were unusable, the left bud cutting in and out the whole time (or going completely silent). When it did work, it was like a half-second behind the right one. I tried holding the phone in my hand, next to the earbuds, in my pocket, nothing helped. They did finally update the firmware on them, and I feel like the cutting in and out got worse.”, wrote a Reddit user.
Issues Came After Several Days Of Announcement
From what it looks like, this is certainly not the experience one would expect from a huge tech giant like Google. The earbuds were supposed to rectify all the issues of the infamous original Pixel Buds and make Google’s TWS offering mainstream. It is indeed surprising how the Pixel Buds 2 is facing such issues despite being announced several months earlier.
Google recently released a firmware update (version 295) for the Pixel Buds 2 but that hasn’t reportedly solved the issue either. So for now, We could expect the software giant to release an update soon in the coming weeks to address the rising concerns of Pixel Buds 2 users and make it sorted as soon as possible.
