I’ve reviewed a lot of true wireless earbuds over the last few years—from $50 ‘buds to $300 ‘buds, I run the gamut. So when I say the Pixel Buds A-Series are my favorites right now, that’s a pretty big endorsement. I reviewed these back to back with Sony’s absolutely excellent WF-1000XM4 earbuds, but the Pixel Buds A-Series are the ones that I’d still reach for, even though they’re a third of the cost.
They don’t sound better. They don’t have advanced features like ANC or transparency mode. The case doesn’t have wireless charging. But they’re the most comfortable buds I’ve ever worn, and the spatial vents are the real deal when it comes to preventing that “clogged ear” feeling. It’s an incredible feeling.

If you’ve got a lot of travel plans on the horizon—like road trips, flying, or even camping—you should probably invest in a good travel pillow that won’t take up much space in your bag.

It only weighs 3.4 ounces, too, so it’s perfect for taking with on long-distance hiking trips. Soft rubber anti-slipping dots help keep it in place, and it’s also water-resistant. It measures 16 x 12 x 4 inches and works for back, side, and stomach sleepers alike.
