Google Pixel Buds is now available in Singapore starting December 13.

The wireless headphones can be bought at Singtel retail outlets at S$238 and is available in one colour, black, it said in a press release.

The new wireless headphones are specifically designed to beat Apple's AirPods that were debuted alongside the iPhone 7 family back in September 2016.

With the Pixel Buds earphones, users can easily control calls, audio and also access Google Assistant with the touch of the right earbud, eliminating the need to look at the phone.

Similar to AirPods, Pixel Buds don't have any buttons to control its operations. The right earbud from the pair, however, does have a touchpad that allows you to adjust volume with swipe forward and backward gestures and play or pause music with a single tap.

One thing that separates Pixel Buds from Apple's AirPods is Google Translate support that works in 40 international languages. This is something smarter than most of the smart devices as you can translate your own words in real-time using the headphones, and the output will be played through the speaker of your smartphone. But there is one catch -- you need to own a Pixel phone.
