TL;DR
  • The Google Pixel Buds A series is getting a new colorway.
  • The new colorway is officially called Sea.
  • The Sea colorway is designed to match the Pixel 7a.

At Google I/O 2023, we finally got an official look at the Pixel 7a in all four of its colorways. But Google’s latest phone wasn’t the only device that was shown off at the event. We also got an official look at the new colorway for the Pixel Buds A series.

Through numerous leaks leading up to the event, we’ve already seen the light blue colorway more than we can count. However, there was some new information. Previously, it was expected that this blue colorway would be called “Arctic Blue.” But as it turns out, Google chose to dub this new color “Sea.”

Sea won’t only be the name of the colorway for the Pixel 7a but also for the new Pixel Buds A series color. Altogether, the Pixel Buds A series lineup now consists of Charcoal, Clearly White, Dark Olive, and Sea. It appears that Sea and Charcoal are the only colorways that share names with the colorways of the Pixel 7a.

Outside of color, there’s nothing new about these earbuds. In our review, we gave the Pixel Buds A series four out of five stars. The more comfortable fit, IPX4 water-resistant rating, spatial audio, and excellent touch controls made it stand out.

However, they are far from perfect. Most notably, we were disappointed by the lack of noise cancelation, no transparency mode, the weak bass, and the audio-visual lag on Android. They also have a tendency to drop voices when in areas with background noise. Still, at $99, these are a good buy, and the new colorway looks pretty sweet.
