The Google Pixel Buds Pro are a great alternative to AirPods if you have an Android or Google smartphone, and now they're on sale too. You can save $60 over at Amazon on any colour variant of these earbuds, usually retailing for $199.99. We have a feeling this is a limited time deal, as the price cut coincides with Best Buy's 3-day Anniversary sale. 

Available in charcoal, coral, fog, or lemongrass, the Google Pixel Buds Pro are wireless in-ear headphones that are discreet, but certainly don't hold back. The Bluetooth earbuds amplify sound for the best possible quality wherever you are, and have easy-to-use touch controls for adjustments on the go - great for commuters.

Review consensus: We're yet to give these Google Pixel Buds Pro a proper go for ourselves, but they have been reviewed by our sister site, Tom's Guide, who prasied the Superb Google Assistant integration, and felt that the overall fit was a little loose.
