Libratone outs two “Made for Google” headphones

Libratone has two new headphones sets in its “Made for Google” program for accessories announced yesterday at Google’s Pixel 2 event.

First up are the Q Adapt in-ear USB-C earphones, which are specifically designed for smartphones without a 3.5mm jack – like Google’s new Pixel 2.

The Q Adapt has sweat-proofing, noise cancellation and playback controls.

The Q Adapt On-ear wireless headphones support the Pixel 2’s fast pairing feature through Bluetooth. It works similarly to Apple’s AirPods’ pairing to iDevices – no setup required, just proximity.

The Q Adapt On-ear supports noise cancelling and has a sensor to stop playback if you remove the headphones from your ears.

The battery life is rated at 20 hours but you can also connect them through a 3.5mm cable – Pixel 2 users need to use a $20 3.5mm to USB-C dongle, which luckily comes in the retail box.

The Libratone Q Adapt On-ear will retail for $249 while the Q Adapt USB-C in-ear will cost you $149. Both will be available in Cloudy White and Stormy Black starting on October 6 in the US and November 1 in Europe.
