Android finally has its Airpods competitor in the shape of the new Google Pixel Buds. We don’t all have $170 to fork out on our audio, but today you have another option. If you don’t mind a refurb (more on that below) then Best Buy is offering Geek Squad refurbished Pixel Buds for just $99 ($80 off) in its Deal of the Day.
There’s a lot to love about the latest generation of these true wireless buds, which are a significant improvement on Google’s first attempt. They boast a minimalistic design and premium features like wireless charging and water-resistance, as well as Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and excellent sound quality. You get up to five hours of playback on one charge and another 24 hours from the charging case.

Google Assistant is built-in of course and the microphone quality is great. This allows you to enjoy hands-free control of your calls or music, as well as opening the door to more niche features such as real-time translation. These aren’t the perfect earbuds, but they’re certainly a fantastic option for Android users. We suspect that includes a few of you.
It’s natural to be a bit skeptical about refurbished products, but these aren’t a few old parts hastily glued back together. Geek Squad certified refurbs are tested to verify they work like new and restored to the original factory settings. The worst you can expect is the possibility of minor superficial blemishes, and a 90-day warranty ensures your peace of mind.
Remember that this deal ends at midnight, so hit the widget below to take advantage while you can. If you’re not sold on the Pixel buds then you’ll find dozens more great offers on our regularly updated headphone deals hub.
