Even if you may want to be aware of what is going on around you, the Google Pixel Buds Pro has a transparency mode where it helps you hear outside noises, as well. This is super helpful for people who are traveling and can be more attentive to their surroundings, while still jamming to their favorite song or taking an important call.
