After just over two years on the market, Google’s aptly named Pixel USB-C headphones are no longer for sale. These buds are no longer available for sale on the Google Store and most retailers, which is a shame as they were decent for what they were.
We included the Pixel USB-C headphones in our list of the best cheap USB-C headphones, finding them to sound decent with solid bass and a relatively comfortable fit thanks to the adjustable buckles. They also come with a button for Google Assistant. These headphones were included with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, but haven’t been included in any Pixel boxes since. Personally, I’ve never been a huge fan because they don’t have a good joint, but they’re not supposed to.
Verizon appears to be the only retailer to still offer the Pixel USB-C headphones, with the Google Store link redirecting to the site’s homepage now and nothing else showing up in search results. If you still use yours and love them, you might want to buy a spare or two from Verizon while you still can.
One reader pointed out that the Google Store listing is back and you can buy the Pixel USB-C earphones again for $ 29.99. We’re not sure why the link was broken in the first place, but it’s back now. Meanwhile, commentators have pointed out that Verizon is now out of stock, which is pretty funny.
