Alongside the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google also introduced the Pixel Buds. While wireless headphones are nothing new, the firm's headset offers the ability to perform real-time translations using Google Translate. Although the wireless headphones recently started shipping, it appears that a representative at the Google Store in New York had some advice for a customer, one that should probably not be heeded.
According to a Reddit user, this is what allegedly unfolded while stepping into the store:
"I decided to finally walk over and check out the Google store here in Manhattan and checked out the pixel buds. A Google employee came over to me and asked if I wanted to pre order a pair? I told him I already did and they should be here Tuesday. I told him hopefully in the future there won't be a cord. He said with a dead serious face "just cut the cord". I was like?! Google said not to cut the cord. He was confused and asked me why? I proceeded to tell him the reasons and he's like "well I better stop telling people that".
If you weren't sure about that fiddly cord that connects each earphone, you definitely don't want to cut it. This probably applies to most sets of Bluetooth earphones that have this kind of connection, but that part houses vital cables that make the product work, and it should go without saying, but cutting it is no good and will void your warranty.
