  • Google is bringing the Pixel Buds A to India.
  • The affordable true wireless earbuds will go on sale below Rs 10,000 beginning August 25.

Some months ago, Google announced the Pixel Buds A, its new budget-orientated earbuds in a few regions. Now, they’re finally heading to India to compete in the country’s competitive mid-range buds market.

The Pixel Buds A are visually identical to the second generation Pixel Buds and include many of the same core touch controls. Also included is Adaptive Sound, which tweaks the volume depending on environmental factors. We found this feature a little distracting in our review, but some may find it useful. Beamforming microphones for calls and prompts to the baked-in Google Assistant also feature.

The Pixel Buds A also land with an IPX4 rating for sweat resistance and a claimed five hours of listening time per charge with an additional 24 hours in the charging case. It doesn’t include wireless charging, though.

So, how much will they cost and when can you buy them? Well, you’ll need Rs 9,999 (~$135) to snag a pair in Clearly White. In terms of direct currency conversion, it’s surprisingly a little more than what Google’s asking for in the US. The Pixel Buds A are also much pricier than several competitors‘ products.
