Google Pixel Buds A for $129 Delivered at Telstra Store

160

Google Pixel Buds A for $129.

RRP is $159

From my search it's the current cheapest price.

Tried price match from Google store but they refused as Telstra isn't on their list of price match vendors.

Main disadvantage/con from my perspective is the case does not have wireless charging.

  • Thanks for sharing, it is shame Google store can not match, I was thinking how to use my credit.

    • Agreed. They're so silly. Officeworks might though. I was too excited and just bought one. It's in stock at officeworks

      • got 5% price beat at officeworks. thanks

    • Yeah the best bet would be one of these places price matching (or beating) and then in turn bringing down their advertised price which the google store should then match and then we could use our credit!

    • Same. I have $117 credit to use. I don't know why Telstra wouldn't be on their list.

  • Does it work well with Apple devices?

    • +1

      It will work, but probably not quite as 'well' as AirPods.

    • Will see if there are some videos of pixel buds A with apple devices. May take a while as I am at work

  • Whats the audio quality like, and how well do they block noise?

    • +10

      I have these and have been using them for a few weeks now. The Pixel Buds A take audio quality to the different direction from mainstream preference. Unlike what mainstream listeners prefer which is deep bass for EDM, R&B, Pop music, the Pixel Buds A goes toward a balanced sound. You get a lot of details and the soundstage is reasonably wide. Bass is present but will not be the strongest element in the music. You do have access to a bass boost setting but it drowns out the mids. To be honest I prefer the Pixel Buds A's sound tuning. And I am sure with some EQ, it'll do quite well.

      As for noise blocking, they don't block any. It has a semi open design to reduce this congestion feeling or vaccuum normally associated with earbuds. You can hear your surroundings quite well. For me, I don't like how I can hear myself inside my head whenever I talk over the phone. I still go back to my AirPods Pro.

    Great deal, just bought some and paid entirely with Telstra reward points (I think it was 42,000pts)
