It sucks when you spend more than $600 on a shiny new smartphone, and the box doesn’t even include a pair of earbuds. Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL don’t come with earbuds. However, Google had at least considered including them in the Pixel 2 box. Fresh evidence suggests that the Google Pixel 2 earbuds were almost a reality, but something held Google back from adding them in the box.

Google Pixel 2 earbuds: What made Google change its mind?

A buyer going by the name Lucas Everett recently picked his Google Pixel 2 from a Verizon store. He was surprised when he opened the box. It, of course, contained the phone and a booklet. It also had a cutout for a pair of Google Pixel 2 earbuds, but there were no buds in the box. As if that wasn’t surprising enough, the Inside the box booklet also included references to the earbuds that weren’t there.
