What sets these wireless Bluetooth earbuds apart from all the others? It seems they can translate languages in real-time. Which sounds really handy if you're visiting Tokyo and don't speak Japanese. Given how Google Translate works though, probably wouldn't recommend betting your life on those translations. The headphones also come with built-in Google Assistant. So you can touch your ear, say "Hey Google, where is the nearest doggy daycare," and you're guaranteed to look odd in any language.
