Google Bluetooth headphones hit FCC

Google-branded Bluetooth headphones hit FCC

Although it would be interesting to see this accessory on the market, it looks like the Google-branded wireless headphones that recently surfaced on FCC are only for use inside the company's HQ.

Google might not have too many noise-canceling headphones on the market right now, but the company's employees use such accessories internally. Now, it looks like a new such headset is ready to reach its users - it only remains to see if the Google GID5B hits the market or remains a piece of hardware for exclusive use inside the Google HQ.

The user manual of this new model that surfaced on FCC mentions an adjustable headband, a microphone for phone calls, as well as an optional cable with in-line volume and play/pause controls. The other specs look very good - 12 Hz to 20 KHz frequency range, 10 hours of autonomy at maximum volume level and 16 hours of Bluetooth streaming with noise canceling active.

The Google Merchandise Store currently has the Google G Noise-reducing Bluetooth Headphones listed for $145.99 USD, so the GID5B might hit the market as an improved model. However, it is also highly likely not to ever see them on the open market. We will keep an eye on this story as usual, and we will get back to it as soon as something new comes up, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
