Google Pixel Buds
by Google

Google Hardware Design

Google has designed high-quality wireless earbuds, which can maintain a consistent bluetooth connection and solid audio performance.

Pixel Buds have been designed around ears, which are not only more unique than fingerprints, but show a huge breadth in variety of sizes and shapes.

Designing one system that worked well for a diversity of people and activities was always the innovation lab's goal.

The design lab has housed a bevy of specialised sensors and acoustic geometry within a low-profile form that fits neatly in the Google Hardware family.

This project has been longlisted in the wearable design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
